The 24 runs the Los Altos High baseball team scored in last week’s series-opening rout of Saratoga may not be a school record, though coach Gabe Stewart said Aaron Parker’s 10 RBIs just might be.

He recalled the Eagles producing 25 runs in a win over Santa Clara when Sandy Wihtol was the coach and Stewart ran the frosh-soph team. However, during his 12 years coaching the JV team and his five as varsity coach, Stewart said, he “cannot remember anyone at Los Altos High putting up double-digit RBIs.”
