Boys Basketball: University 56, California School for the Deaf 50
The Red Devils (19-11) led 37-22 at the half on the road against the Eagles (24-6), then withstood a late push from CSD to secure a North Coast Section Division V semifinal berth and a spot in the CIF State Championship tournament for the third-consecutive year. University went cold in the fourth quarter, but was buoyed by junior forward Harold Getz, who scored all six of the Red Devils’ points in the final frame. Getz finished with nine points, sophomore forward Jack Gale scored 14 and junior guard David Medoff added 11.
Girls Basketball: Mercy 63, Notre Dame-Salinas 27
Like so many other lopsided Central Coast Section playoff games on Saturday, the top-seeded Skippers (25-2) dominated their Division IV quarterfinal matchup with the Spirits (15-10) from the start. Mercy scored 26 points in the first quarter, one less than Notre Dame had in the entire game. Standout guard Mariah Masoli led the Skippers with 17 points, six steals and four assists, and senior forward Courtney Sabahi had a double-double with 11 points and 13 rebounds.
Baseball: Heritage 12, Riordan 5
The Crusaders (2-1) looked impressive in their first two games of the season, but took a step back on Saturday against the Patriots (2-0). Riordan committed eight errors and only five of Heritage’s 12 runs were earned. The Crusaders made a late push and outscored the Patriots 5-1 in the final 3 1/2 innings, but could not overcome the early deficit. Riordan center fielder James Cullinane continued his hot start at the plate with a 3-for-3 performance, including a double and two runs scored. The junior is hitting .727 three games into the season with four extra-base hits.
