Vikings ready for playoff push

DOWNEY - The Downey High School girls' softball team currently has an overall record of 15-7 and a league record of 3-2.The Lady Vikings are currently in third place in S.G.V.L. play behind Paramount (4-0) and Warren (3-1). Gahr (2-3), Lynwood (1-3) and Dominguez (0-5) round out the San Gabriel Valley League standings. Warren is currently ranked fifth, Downey sixth, Downey Calvary Chapel (D.C.C.) seventh and Paramount is tied for tenth in the latest Pres- Telegram poll, respectively. Downey defeated Dominguez at Downey 18-0 on 4/18 and defeated Lynwood at Lynwood 15-0 on Tuesday. The Lady Vikings traveled to cross-town rival Warren yesterday to take on the Bears (score unavailable at press time). Downey will face Chaminade of West Hills tomorrow at the Thousand Oaks Tournament in Thousand Oaks. The Lady Vikings will return to league play next Tuesday against Gahr at Gahr and next Thursday against Paramount at Downey. The Paramount contest will be a huge game for the Lady Vikings if they are going to make a push for another league title. The Lady Vikings will conclude their regular season against Dominguez at Dominguez on 5/7 and against Lynwood at Downey on 5/9. The Lady Vikings are certainly starting to make their push for a spot in the C.I.F. Division III playoff field. The only question is, will they be the San Gabriel Valley League number one, two or three entry?
