The Conqueror Baseball team completed a 3-game sweep of Walnut on Thursday and improved their league record to 6-0. After a bumpy start, the squad has settled in and looks poised to make a run at a league title. While the team showed signs of inconsistency early in the season, they have definitely found their stride through the first round of league and over Spring Break.
The Conquerors jumped out to a 4-0 league record prior to Spring Break and continued their winning ways in the St. Paul Tournament. The pitching staff was tested as the boys played 7 games in 9 days, 2 of those games were league wins and the others were part of the St. Paul Spring Tournament. With the pitching staff stretched thin, the Conquerors pushed through and finished the tournament with 3 wins. Last week, the team picked up with Hacienda League play with a 2-game series with Walnut. The Conqs beat Walnut 4-2 in the league opener and kept the momentum going with a 7-2 victory at home on Tuesday and a 2-1 road victory on Thursday. Those wins completed the league sweep of Walnut and put the Conquerors in the top spot in the Hacienda League. There is still a lot of season left with 9 league games remaining, but with this strong start the team has given itself a chance to play for a league title in the coming weeks. This week Los Altos plays a non-league game at Downey on Monday followed by 2 games with Charter Oak.
