The Justin-Siena softball had their home opener on last Thursday. It was the first game they played on their new field after spending a season playing at Napa Valley College’s Storm Field. “The girls were excited, and we were just as excited,” Justin-Siena coach Tim Garcia said of winning the first game on their new diamond. “We’ve spent the last year building this thing, so it’s a nice feeling and we’re really excited to have the opportunity to play on it.”
