Los Altos is having a season to remember – and it just got better with the release of the CIF Southern Section Division 1 softball pairings on Monday.

The Conquerors (26-2) were seeded fifth in the tournament and received a first-round bye. They will play the winner of Thursday’s Saugus-Camarillo first-round game in the second round on May 22 at Los Altos.

For Coach Lydell McCullough, that means his team will get a week of rest before returning to the field.

“Our girls have totally earned the bye. It’s a reward for having a great season.” McCullough said. “We’ll find a way to keep the competitive juices going all week. Our players don’t feel they get the respect because of where we play and other factors. We have to go out there and earn our respect.”

Game time on Tuesday has been moved up to a 2pm start due to Graduation taking place the same evening.
