Evans, a sophomore right-hander from Escondido High School and two-time conference Pitcher of the Year, two-time first-team all-state selection and Most Valuable Pitcher in the 2015 CCCAA State Tournament as the Comets won their second California championship in three years, pitched a four-hit shutout in the last game of the regular season, a 9-1 win over Mesa in six innings.

With the win, Evans and her teammates won the PCAC championship by seven games over runner-up Grossmont. Evans finished the regular season with a 30-5 win-loss record and a 1.44 earned run average for 184 1/3 innings. It was Palomar's 33rd conference softball title.

Lemusa, a sophomore from Helix High School, and Wright, a freshman from Chaparral High School in Temecula, entered the post-season as the PCAC's No. 2 2's duo. In the conference individual playoffs Lemusa/Wright beat Mesa's No. 3 duo 2-0 and upset team champion Grossmont's No. 1 pairing 21-17, 21-29 before losing to Grossmont's 2's duo 21-17, 21-19.

Honorable mention selections were Palomar softball shortstop Brienna Dunckel and Grossmont's undefeated beach volleyball 6's pairing of Maddie Schaeffer and Sammy Powell.

Dunckel, a freshman from Valley Center High School, the PCAC Player of the Year and a first-team all-state selection, finished the regular season by going 2-for-4 in the Comets' 9-1 win over Mesa and 14-for-23 in Palomar's final six games. She hit .493 for the regular season, stealing 26 bases.

Schaeffer, a freshman from Patrick Henry High School and Powell, a freshman from Bishop High in Bishop, CA, went unbeaten in all exhibition matches they played against two-year college opponents and moved up to the 5's flight to take their match against Arizona State University down to the wire before finally losing – then lost in three vs. Grand Canyon University.
