GATORS SOFTBALL WASHED OUT:

Rain postponed fourth-seeded San Francisco State’s game against top-seeded and third-ranked Humboldt State in the first round of the CCAA Softball Championships in Arcata. The Gators, who claimed the final playoff spot on the final day of the regular season, trail Humboldt State 5-2 entering the bottom of the fourth inning. The game is scheduled to resume today at 9 a.m.

In the first game of the tournament, Cal State Stanislaus beat UC San Diego 6-2.

USF’S BERRY HONORED:

USF senior men’s tennis player Matthew Berry, who posted a 27-7 record at No. 1 singles, was named first-team All-West Coast Conference. The South African won his final 10 matches and 16 of 18.

Dons sophomore Thong Tu, who went 22-11 between No. 2 and No. 3 singles, was named to the second team, while freshman Asaf Cohen (19-2) was honorable mention.
