May 7, 2018 (Santee) - In our first-ever trip to Santana High, ECM Sports got some softball action under our belt as the lady Sultans hosted the Clairemont Chieftains for a non-conference faceoff.  The Sultans rock an impressive 18-8 record on the season.  Junior Madison Mendez started on the hill for the Sultans against Jennee Brodeur for the Chieftains.
