A Match Meant To Be

Ten-year-old Ahlonnie Mosby officially became a Lancer last month following a 3-1 California Baptist University victory over Seattle University. A true MVP, Ahlonnie threw a near-perfect first pitch to kick off the game and was sharing tips and cheering on her teammates until the last out. After the game, she was joined by her parents on stage in the CBU Events Center lobby for a special Signing Day, where she selected her team visor and signed her letter of intent, which will secure her official place on the team for the next two years.

But the true magic of this match story is that it’s one of pure fate. Once officially matched with the Cal Baptist softball team, Ahlonnie and her family learned that Lancer’s assistant coach, Brittney Gossett, has a daughter with a similar diagnosis. The two girls have quickly become friends, connecting over shared experiences and a love of softball. We can’t wait to see where their bond will take them.

“I love everything about CBU softball! The girls are all my best friends.
I like hitting the ball. I loved throwing out the first pitch and I love my
locker and coaches. It’s all exciting to me!”
