EC Bullets CA is proud to announce that Alicia Crewse, a 2020 graduate from Chaparral High School in Temecula, has committed to play softball and continue her education at California State University at Sacramento. Alicia is a right-handed catcher/3B for the EC Bullets CA2020 team.
Alicia has been catching for EC Bullets (as well as Factory 16U Gold) since 2017 and we are extremely happy that she was able to connect with her dream school and she can continue to play softball at the collegiate level. Alicia has played a significant amount of time behind the plate during the team’s successes such as qualifying for PGF 16U Premier, placing 17th (Tied) at PGF 16U Premier Nationals, runner up at The Champions Cup, as well as multiple Triple Crown Tournament championships.
The Hornets are the athletic teams that represent Cal State Sacramento in the state’s Capital. The Sacramento State Softball program is coming off winning both the Big Sky Conference regular season as well as the Big Sky Tournament. By winning the Big Sky Tournament, Cal State Sacramento earned a berth in the NCAA Division 1 Regional Tournament where they faced eventual 3rd place in the country UCLA (lost 3-0) and #22 in the country Texas State. Sacramento State is working hard to use last years success and build upon that momentum for years to come.
Alicia and her family worked very hard at achieving this accomplishment and we are very happy for them!
Congrats from all of us at EC Bullets CA!
