A three-year letterwinner at Pacifica High School coached by Kevin M. Cody, Mascarenas enters her senior season with a .364 career batting average and nine home runs. The third basemen helped her team finish 22-12 last season and end the year as a Southern Section CIF Semifinalist. In 2007, Pacifica was the Southern Section CIF State Champions.

Mascarenas also played travel ball with Magic 32 (2005), So Cal Hurricanes (2005) and Young Guns (2004).
