After finishing third in the Peninsula Athletic League with a 9-3 record, the Terra Nova Tigers varsity softball team went to the Central Coast Section tournament for the first time in more than a decade. 

For Gianna Tassio, who has been playing baseball since she was 4, and softball since she was 10 years old, finally getting the opportunity to play in the regional tournament after a rocky couple of years due to COVID-19 was a great testament to the team's hard work.
