MV baseball team advances to semis at expense of LA

The last two years, the Mountain View High baseball team’s season ended with a loss to rival Los Altos in the Central Coast Section Division I quarterfinals. The 10th-seeded Spartans returned the favor Saturday, edging the No. 2 Eagles 6-5 in the same round at Fremont High.

“It took us three years, but we finally got them,” Mountain View coach Kris Mims said. “But it wasn’t easy. They’re the defending champs and won 22 games.”

No Open Division for LA baseball; Mtn. View softball wins league title

Two weeks ago, the Los Altos High baseball team looked like a lock to make the Central Coast Section Open Division playoffs. A four-game skid followed, however, and – just as coach Gabe Stewart feared – it cost the Eagles an invitation to the top tier of the tournament.

“Due to recency bias, I am not sure if the committee will be able to overlook our recent four-game losing streak and instead focus on the fact we won 21 of our first 22,” Stewart said prior to Sunday’s seeding meeting. “My best guess is that not winning at least one game against Palo Alto, which would have made us (SCVAL De Anza Division) co-champions, and losing against Wilcox in the postseason (league) tourney, is going to hurt us for being selected for the Open.”
