After being selected for the NCS Playoffs this past Sunday as a 15 seed, the SA baseball team traveled to Eureka on Tuesday for a first round match-up against the second seeded St. Bernard’s Crusaders. The Coyotes had finished the regular season with lopsided wins over Tomales and Rincon Valley Christian, but ultimately it was not enough momentum as the Crusaders took advantage of playing on their home field to pick up the win. Congratulations to the boys on a great season, which included a second place finish in the league and 13 total wins.
