Softball Team Suffers "True Loss"

Desiree Hobill, an MSJC student who was on the women’s softball team, died July 5 in a watercraft accident on the Colorado River.

Desiree came to MSJC in 2007-08 after graduating from Murrieta Valley High School. Ron Hobill, her father, was an assistant coach for the MSJC softball team and her sister Ashley Hobill was also on the team.

She was a great teammate -- always there always on time,” said MSJC’s head softball coach Gina Oliver. “She was somebody that always gave 100 percent. She was a great student and will be sorely missed.”

Desiree was a passenger on a SeaDoo when it collided with a boat, according to reports.
