Members of the Menlo School baseball team, including three local residents, celebrate their Central Coast Section championship. Pictured, from left, are Griff McGarry, Justin Nam (Los Altos Hills), Nolan Peterson, Chandler Yu (Mountain View), Zack Hurwitz and Justin Kasser (Los Altos).
As a freshman last year, Justin Nam didn’t get to contribute much to Menlo School’s Central Coast Section Division II championship baseball team. This year, however, the Los Altos Hills resident played a significant role in the Knights’ successful defense of the title.
The infielder and relief pitcher was twice called upon to get the final out in the playoffs, and he took care of business in both one-run games.
