Los Alamitos softball wins Michelle Carew Classic with boost from Taryn Clements’ bat

The Los Alamitos softball team showed its versatility and toughness during this week’s Michelle Carew Classic, and that included the way it won the tournament’s Gold Bracket final Saturday night.

The Griffins defeated No. 1 seed St. Francis of Mountain View 4-2 in the championship game at Peralta Canyon Park in Anaheim.

They struck early for two runs using aggressive base running, but the key hit was a solo home run by catcher Taryn Clements in the fourth inning that put the Griffins ahead 3-2.

The Griffins went 4-0 in the tournament, and each of their victories showcased different strengths.

They shut out Mission Viejo 3-0 in the first round, used a grand slam by Clements to beat Orange Lutheran 4-2 in the quarterfinals and as a group pounded the ball in a 12-3 win over Huntington Beach in the semifinals Saturday afternoon.
