Vikings gear up for 2020 season

BARSTOW - The Barstow College softball team has sights set on the 2020 season.

Barstow will kick off the season at the Glendale Invitational with four games over the two day event on January 31 and February 1. The Vikings have a talented roster as the school moves into the Inland Empire Athletic Conference. The first conference game on February 12 against San Bernadino.

"We are excited about kicking off the season and battling for the conference championship," said Coach Tim Syrek. "We think our roster of players will be very competitive with the teams in the league."

Teams in the conference this year are Victor Valley, Chaffey, Desert, San Bernadino, San Jacincto and Barstow. Cerro Coso is also in the league but is not fielding a team this year.

"It's a new conference, but same old goals," Syrek added. "We want our games at the end of the season to have meaning."
