Seguin duo helps Angelina claim NJCAA national softball title

(St. George, Utah) – With help from two former Seguin High School standouts, the Angelina College softball team recently brought home the NJCAA Division 1 national championship with an 8-5 victory over Central Florida in the title game of the juco World Series in St. George, Utah.  

Former Matadors Meranda Rodriguez and Sidney Allen both played roles on the Lady Roadrunners national championship team this past season.

Rodriguez, a freshman catcher, posted a batting average that topped the .300 mark and finished third on the team in RBIs, according to Angelina sports information director Gary Stallard.  Complete season stats for the Lady ‘Runners are not available.  

Allen, also a freshman, was primarily used as a pinch/ courtesy runner during her first season of college softball.  

Both players were All-District performers under head coach John Garcia during their high school careers at Seguin, and Allen was the Class-4A state powerlifting champion in her weight class as a senior in 2013.  

Angelina’s 2014 national title was the school’s first, and the first for any Texas team since the inception of the NJCAA D-I World Series in 1977.  The Lady ‘Runners are coached by Mark Mattson.  

Rodriguez and Allen weren’t the only Guadalupe County natives who helped Angelina claim the national championship.  Samantha Moore, who dueled against Rodriguez and Allen’s Seguin teams as a Clemens Buffalo in 2013, was named the tournament’s Most Outstanding Pitcher and earned the win in the circle over Central Florida in the title game.  When the two were high school standouts, Allen hit a home run off Moore in Seguin’s 2-1 victory over Clemens on March 8, 2013.
