SANTA CLARA—The only way Jon Newman could have been better against Wilcox on Saturday is if he threw a perfect game.
The swimming season came to a close for Gilroy and Christopher at the CCS prelims at the Santa Clara International Swim Center on May 12.
Heading into the playoff games that kicked off on Wednesday, the Christopher baseball team knocked off San Benito 5-1 on May 11.
Christopher’s offense took advantage of Gilroy’s defensive struggles to comfortably take the last game of the regular season 13-2 in five innings.
Christopher had clawed its way back into the game against Gilroy, tying the game with three runs in the fifth and two more runs in the seventh but it was the Mustangs who got the big hit.
It was a meet to remember for the Gilroy High and Christopher High track and field teams in last Friday’s Monterey Bay League Pacific Division Championships. The Mustangs—competing in the comfortable confines of their own facility—placed first in the boys team competition and second in the girls competition to Christopher.
In a pitcher’s duel, Gabriella Howard drew the short stick on Christopher’s loss to Notre Dame 1-0.
For the second week in a row, Gilroy’s Logan Flores had reason to celebrate.
BAKERSFIELD—Two finalists. Four medalists. Nine qualifiers. Fifth place in the state.
Gilroy made history yet again at the Central Coast Section wrestling championships over the weekend at Independence High School. And that’s Gilroy the city, not just Gilroy the high school.
