Whitney Lee could be playing professional volleyball in Europe. Instead, she’s chosen to finish her degree.
Lee, a 2nd team All-CCAA selection, placed third in total overall blocks in the CCAA conference. She led the Toros in blocks and service aces in 2012.

After her senior season with the Toros, Lee, 22, landed a spot on the January European Exposure Tour this semester, with help from CSUDH Head Volleyball Coach Jen Adeva. The tour, for college athletes, allows professional teams to scout and pick up players while they play and tour different countries.

Members of the baseball and softball teams returned this semester to a new field.

The upgrade started last April and was completed at the end of December.

The infield grass, the skirts in front of the dugouts and the grass around the outfield have been replaced with thicker green grass. The infield dirt was replaced to create a better surface to slide on. The pitcher’s mound was completely rebuilt to have the proper slope and height.

The California State University Dominguez Hills baseball team is looking to improve its record from last season, but this will not be an easy feat.
The Toros face the challenge of a team roster that has the most freshmen they’ve had in years.

“Experience is a challenge because we don’t have a lot of players that have competed at this level,” said head coach Murphy Su’a. “It depends on how quickly they can acclimate themselves to this level of play and the stiff competition. The sooner they do that the more success we will have on the field.”
