The Antioch High School girls softball program has had a long list of talented pitchers with several inducted into the Antioch Sports Legends Hall of Fame. Cassie Mann joins that elite group because of her fabulous careers at Antioch High School and Dominican University. In high school she was the BVAL Player of the Year in her junior season and team MVP as a senior. She was first team All-League both years and was selected as the MVP of the prestigious Queen of the Mountain Tournament in Concord where she was 3-0 and didn’t allow an earned run. She was also included in the Contra Costa Times top 50 Athletes of the Year and was a NCS Scholar Athlete her junior year. In her sophomore year, the Antioch High School team won the BVAL championship and lost in the North Coast Section semi-finals. In her junior season they lost the NCS championship game to Carondelet High School. Leading up to that tournament game, Cassie won 14 straight games, eleven of which were shutouts. She pitched 54 consecutive innings without opponents scoring a single run.
After high school, she received a full scholarship to Dominican University of California in San Rafael and graduated Cum Laude in 2004 with a degree in International Business Management. She played all four years in college and was team captain her last two seasons. In her first two years, she was awarded the NAIA California Pacific Conference Most Valuable Pitcher. In 2004 she pitched a perfect game and was chosen the Team’s MVP.
After college Cassie embarked on a career in law enforcement and is employed by the Kings County Sheriff’s Office as their Fiscal Manager. She resides in Hanford with her husband and 11 year old son.
