Behind Reelfs’ dominant performance, the 11th-seeded Eagles beat No. 3 Mountain View 7-3 Saturday at Washington Park in Santa Clara. The senior had a no-hitter going for five innings. Relieved by Ryan Baum after the sixth, Reelfs struck out eight batters and walked one. He allowed three hits and three runs, only one of them earned.
Reelfs accomplished this just three days after starting the Eagles’ 9-0 road rout of No. 6 Alisal in the opening round of the playoffs. Coach Gabe Stewart wisely pulled Reelfs after four innings and 68 pitches, making him eligible to take the mound Saturday.
Seeded fourth in the girls 50-yard freestyle, St. Francis High’s Brooke Schaffer surprised even herself by placing second in the finals Saturday at the state swimming and diving championships in Clovis.
“I wasn’t really expecting that,” the junior said. “It was a good surprise.”
