The boys’ varsity baseball team has opened its league play with a record of four wins and six losses. After getting off to a slow start with two consecutive losses to Carlmont, the team rebounded with back-to-back victories over Menlo-Atherton. However, it was recently swept by local rival Carlmont, putting the team back under .500 in league play.

Perhaps the lack of seniors--coupled with the overload of sophomore and junior players--is beginning to take a toll on the Peninsula Athletic League defending champions. However, while they have suffered as of late, they do not plan on changing their approach or making any significant lineup adjustments just yet.

“I think our team has shown a lot of bright spots early, but our record doesn't show it. If we continue to work hard like we have been at practice, the results will show up,” senior pitcher Alex Waldsmith said.

As the team heads into the final weeks of the season, it will be looking to get back on track and give itself a winning league record for the first time this season. Doing this will not be easy, however. Its final league matchups will be against divisional foes Sacred Heart Prep and Terra Nova--two of the strongest teams in the PAL.

Their next game will be a home matchup against Sacred Heart Prep on Friday, April 29 at 4:00 p.m.
