New coach, same approach for talented Casa Roble softball

Marriage and a new teaching job in the Bay Area forced Kristen Allen, the 2010 Bee Coach of the Year, to step down last spring as Casa Roble's highly successful softball coach.

Allen led the No. 11 Rams to back-to-back section titles - a D-II banner last season and D-III title in 2010.

But Allen, a former Casa Roble and Pacific softball standout, leaves new coach Ken Kenobbie, last season's JV coach, with plenty of talent.

Among the returnees is junior All-Capital Valley Conference pitcher Kaitlyn Garcia, who tossed all 163 innings in 26 games for the Rams last season.

She joins Washington verbal commits Krystal Aubert, a sophomore third baseman who was the CVC MVP last season, and Ali Aguilar, a junior shortstop and Capital Athletic League MVP in 2010.

Also back are returning All-CVC players Madison Zetz, a sophomore infielder, and McKenzie Kenobbie, a junior catcher. She is the daughter of the coach.

The Rams are 5-2 heading into Thursday's 4:15 p.m. game against No. 10 Whitney in Orangevale.
