Victoria Cervantes had another stellar week for the Oaks as she helped the team to its record-breaking 31st win of the season with a four-game weekend sweep of Biola and Vanguard. Cervantes tossed a complete game, five-inning shutout to defeat Biola on Friday. She struck out five and allowed just three hits in the winning effort. On Saturday, she then went an impressive 6.1 scoreless innings to win a 1-0 pitcher’s dual against regular season conference champion Vanguard. She is now 14-7 on the year with a 1.81 ERA.
1. How did you decide that you wanted to go to Menlo College?
I decided to go to Menlo because I got recruited through softball and when looking at the majors I decided I wanted to go into Accounting after my mom.
2. What got you into your sport?
My parents signed me up for softball when I was 5 and have been playing every year ever since then.
3. Who/what is your inspiration?
My parents are my inspiration because they taught me how to carry myself and how to be best person I can be. They were always there by my side whether it was softball or school even though they had to work and provide for 4 other kids. They were my inspiration to work hard for what I want.
4. What is the nerdiest thing you do in your spare time?
I play candy crush soda saga and solitaire pretty much every day when I have time.
5. If there was a movie created about your life, what actor/actress would play you? What would be the highlight of the movie?
I would have Gina Rodriguez play me. The highlight would be pitching my first shutout as a freshman in college.
