El Cajon, Calif. - The San Diego Christian College Athletic Department has announced the addition of softball starting in 2013-2014. Softball will be the ninth athletic program offered by SDCC, and the first addition to the department since baseball was added in 2007.

"We are excited for the opportunity to bring in more female athletes to train in godliness," said San Diego Christian Athletic Director Chris Bando. "We have some outstanding coaching candidates committed to spiritually mentoring young women and assembling a competitive softball team."


The Lady Hawks will compete in the Golden State Athletic Conference and will be the sixth athletic program to feature softball, joining Arizona Christian University, Biola University, Concordia University-Irvine, Hope International University, and Vanguard University.


"This is a great opportunity to add yet another competitive program to the already strong Golden State Athletic Conference," added Bando. "The talent level for softball in Southern California is unmatched and recruiting top talent to compete in an elite conference is a top priority."


"We are looking forward to contributing to Christ-like competition in women's athletics in the GSAC."


The San Diego Christian Athletic Department is currently in the process of an extensive search for a head coach. Applications are currently being accepted. In addition, SDCC is collecting information from any potential recruits who may be interested. To fill out a recruit questionnaire, please click here.


San Diego Christian currently competes in baseball, men's and women's basketball, men's and women's soccer, men's and women's cross country and volleyball.


The San Diego Christian College Athletic Department's mission is to glorify God through the arena of athletics by growing in and manifesting Christ-like attitudes and actions as an expression of worship and gratitude for the work of Christ.
