Baseball: St. Ignatius comes from behind against Aptos to win first CCS title

By Bonta Hill

SAN JOSE – With the St. Ignatius baseball team facing a 3-1 deficit in the bottom of the fifth inning of the Central Coast Section Division II championship game, Aptos was threatening to put the game away with the bases loaded with one out.

St. Ignatius head coach Matt Stetcher called on his ace, Cal-bound pitcher Collin Monsour, to get the Wildcats out of the jam.

Monsour not only got St. Ignatius out of the inning with back-to-back strikeouts, but also swung the momentum of the game that ended with a 5-3 SI victory on Saturday at Municipal Stadium.

Baseball: Stuart Hall’s big fifth inning seals BCL West title game against Lick

By Jeremy Balan

SAN BRUNO – If there was any doubt which baseball team was the best in the Bay Counties League West this season, Stuart Hall High School’s squad removed it on Friday at Skyline College.

Lick-Wilmerding hung with the top-seeded Knights and only trailed 3-1 through four innings, but Stuart Hall slammed the door shut on their second straight league title and an undefeated league season with a six-run fifth inning en route to a 9-1 victory.
