After watching eight hours of nonstop softball that included 22 innings in the intense springtime Sacramento sunshine, El Camino College journalism student Brian Camacho wrote an award-winning spot news story and became a part of sports history.

At the Journalism Association of Community Colleges State Convention in Sacramento, Camacho competed in a newswriting category that assigned about 25 students to a Sacramento State softball doubleheader against Weber State’s Wildcats. The students then wrote about the games.

The second game lasted 15 innings and turned out to be the longest in Sacramento State’s Division I era dating back to 1990. The game was finally called due to darkness.
