The Mesa Thunderbird softball team wrapped up their Fall Campaign in November, along with competing strong against teams like Grand Canyon and Arizona State, the MCC Softballers earned their stripes on the playing field through fall practices and scrimmages.
Also, the group is beginning to develop a close bond off the field with team building sessions and community service involvement.
"I am please with how the team competed this fall. The young ladies have a lot of talent and they have molded together well. We need to get after it when they come back from break and continue to mature. But I am looking forward to competing with this group," said Head Softball Coach Grady Moorhead.

The Mesa CC Softball Program works closely with the Mesa HohHoKam Foundation. Each fall our program honors one of our Student Athletes as the "Most Outstanding Student Athlete" at our Annual Mesa HoHokam Invitational. The student athlete is chosen based on their hard work and achievments on the field, in the classroom and in the community. This fall the recipient was Samantha Quezada.
At the conclusion of the fall, the Mesa CC Softball Roster takes shape. They take the field for their first contest the last weekend in January. Mesa CC Softball Proudly Returns: Alexis Cireol, Sam Quezada, Amber Saiz, Bailee Snyder, Cori Rascon, Ari Sanchez, Kelsey Cook and Nikki Begay.
