The Dons are riding a six-game winning streak into the playoffs following a five game losing streak.

While the team has had a good season overall with a record of 20-11, they have struggled in conference play, winning only six of 15 games. The Dons are currently ranked fifth in the Orange Empire Conference.

Freshman infielder Hannah Dowling and sophomore pitcher Shelly Tait led the Dons in runs scored. Dowling scored 33 runs with 49 hits, and Tait scored 21 runs, six of which were home runs.
