Carlmont softball coach 1 win from 1,000
Catching up and moving forward with a busy spring:
Jim Liggett, one of the region’s finest coaches, is one win from quadruple digits.
Fifth-ranked Carlmont-Belmont (14-1) won two games at the Wilcox-Santa Clara tournament Saturday, pushing the state’s winningest softball coach’s career total to 999.
The Scots’ next game is Tuesday, when they host Capuchino-San Bruno (7-4).
A former Triple-A outfielder in the Orioles’ organization — he played with Boog Powell and Dave McNally and for Earl Weaver —Liggett was Carlmont’s baseball coach and athletic director when he was approached about leading the abruptly vacated softball position.
