The Del Oro High softball team grabbed pole position in the Sierra Foothill League title race with one week to go after a wild 4-1 victory over Roseville Friday on the road. Annette Merjano smacked a two-run home run and Whitney Smith added a two-run single in the 10th inning to lift the Golden Eagles, who had been tied with the Tigers atop the SFL heading into the game. Del Oro (8-2 SFL, 21-3 overall) will play its home finale Tuesday against Oakmont before facing Granite Bay to close out the regular season.
