League Champs Mariposa Hosts Playoff Wednesday
The MCHS Grizzly baseball team captured the Southern Athletic League title outright when it whipped Ripon Christian last week (May 5), and Orestimba lost to Le Grand on the same day.
The only league loss for the Grizzlies was to Orestimba back on April 14 (10-7) after they beat them two days prior, 9-7. With strong play to finish out the season, and the Southern League title, Mariposa advances to the CIF Division VI Section Tournament as the No. 2 overall seed and a first-round home game.
Mariposa (16-8 overall, 13-1 league) will host the Buckingham Charter Knights (6-11 overall, 5-5 league) on Wednesday, May 11 at 4 p.m. on Ed Vegely Field. The Knights are part of the Sacramento Metropolitan Athletic League and are the No. 7 seed in the CIF Division VI Section Tournament.
