Diamond throws a gem!

Junior Derek Diamond threw a no-hitter against Escondido on Tuesday, his second of his career.  Derek really came through in a big way during this pivotal league matchup with our league rivals.  Not only did he not allow a hit the entire game, but he also contributed to the 8-0 victory with a three run homerun during a big fourth inning rally with two outs.  The win knocks Escondido out of title contention, and leaves the Bulldogs in first place, two games ahead of San Pasqual with three games remaining.  The series with the Cougars shifts to Escondido on Thursday, then back at home on Saturday at 10:30.


Diamond named Player of the Week

Dawgs on display at Petco

Our very own Bulldogs sure did shine this weekend at Petco.  The Ramona community came out in droves and did not go away disappointed.  The Bulldogs produced an 11-2 victory and a series sweep of Valley Center.  It was a tremendous experience to say the least, as it will indeed be a cherished memory for years to come....We thank the Padres for this wonderful opportunity!

Alumni representing the program well!

It's always a great day day to be a Bulldog!!!!  When Cal State Fullerton matched up with Arizona State, former Bulldogs shined bright ... Gage Canning hit a homerun and Blake Workman got the win.  Pretty cool stuff.

Canning is on fire at Arizona State

Following a tremendous weekend in which Arizona State swept the University of Oregon, Gage Canning has been named Player of the Week by Rawlings, Perfect Game, and the Pac-12.  During one of those games, he was a ridiculous 5-for-5  with 2 homeruns.  Our former Bulldog is now leading the conference and the entire nation in total hits and triples ... he also leads the Pac-12 in average and is fourth in the country.  Click here to see a very cool clip on Gage's amazing performance so far.  It really is amazing!  Plus, as everybody who knows him can attest to, he ALWAYS carries himself with a great deal of class, ALWAYS hustles, and ALWAYS gives a 100% in every single practice, drill, exercise, and game situation.  Character counts ...

Jeffers throws a NO-NO!

Senior Creede Jeffers leads the way again....this time, throwing a no-hitter against Bonita Vista on Tuesday!  Jeffers recorded an amazing 16 strikeouts during the stellar performance.   Tristan Stacy paced the offense, slashing two triples, collecting three RBI's, and scoring three times.  The Bulldogs are now 4-0 going into a home matchup against Cathedral Catholic on Thursday at 3:00.







The longball powers the Dawgs past Valhalla

Bryce Roe and Derek Diamond hit back-to-back homeruns on consecutive pitches in the first inning at Valhalla on Monday to stake the early lead.  Diamond followed that up with his second homerun of the day later on, finishing with 3 RBI's against the Norsemen.  Senior southpaw Tripp McCrory was stellar on the mound, going five strong innings and only allowing one hit.  The final score was 6-2, and the Bulldogs move to 3-0 in the Hilltop-Lolita's Tournament, widely considered the strongest opening tournament in San Diego.






Bulldogs shine in season opener against RB

In a great season opening matchup, pitting #10 Ramona against #4 Rancho Bernardo, the Bulldogs came out on top by a final score of 4-2.  Senior right-hander Creede Jeffers led the way against RB, pitching six strong innings, and striking out ten batters while only allowing two hits on the day.  Well done Dawgs!

Advice from a college coach

Here is a great quote from a college coach for all those interested in getting to the next level....


"As we transition into the summer travel ball season, I want to give players and parents some advice from my many years as a college coach by telling a story of one of my recruiting trips to a large travel ball tournament last summer.


On this particular morning, I went out to watch a player that I had heard  great things about.  I had gotten there early before even the players and coaches had arrived.  As the parents pulled up in the car, I begin my evaluation of this prospective athlete as soon as they began their walk to the field and began to watch them warmup.


 The player did not carry themselves well during warmups or in pregame.  They didn't hustle and really didn't show the work ethic of a player that wanted to move on to the next level.  The way they talked to their teammates and coaches and just their overall "feel" set off a lot of red flags.  The last straw was the body language the player showed when they looked at the lineup.  The player clearly wasn't in the spot they wanted to be in.


Before the first pitch of the game, I crossed their name off of my list, packed up my chair and clipboard and headed to my car without even seeing them play.


Ability and talent are definitely the first thing that college coaches notice.  But, identifying talent isn't hard for anyone.  Most everyone in the stands can look at a player and say, "That's a great player."  But, what good college coaches are evaluating is the person as a whole.  Attitude.  Effort.  Body language.  Energy.  Passion.


As soon as you get to the ballpark college coaches are looking for those things.


As you head into the weekend or your next tournament, I want to challenge you to stand out in the areas of attitude and effort, both on and off the field, because I promise you, THAT is the best way to get noticed by coaches and scouts."

LEAGUE CHAMPIONS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The 2016 Bulldogs have claimed the Valley League Championship!  Well done boys!  With the series sweep of Orange Glen yesterday, the Dawgs stand atop the Valley League with a record of 13-2.  This puts a stamp on a tremendous turnaround for the season and also marks the third consecutive league championship.  







Down go the Pirates! League title in sight

The long-awaited matchup between the Bulldogs and the Oceanside Pirates proved to be an epic battle, eventually won by the Dawgs on Saturday in an emotional contest 10-6 at Lawler Field.   Game one in Ramona on Tuesday saw the home team pull away with a resounding 9-1 victory.  Game two in Oceanside on Thursday went the way of the Pirates, 3-0.   The series win puts the Bulldogs in a tie for first place with Oceanside.  If the Bulldogs can win the next two games against winless Orange Glen, Ramona will indeed be the Valley League Champions by virtue of this week's series win with Oceanside.  







This year's banquet will be held on Wednesday, May 18th at 7:00 in the basketball gym.  The event will be catered, so be sure to respond to the RSVP emails that go out to make sure your family can be included.  The cost will be $15 per person.  The dress is fairly casual, but players should wear a nice shirt and tie.  The banquet is a great event that celebrates the accomplishments of the boys and energizes the Varsity team as they start the CIF playoffs (hopefully!).







Dick commits to St. Katherine

Senior RHP Tyler Dick has signed a National Letter of Intent to play at St. Katherine College next season.  St. Katherine College is a start-up program looking to make some noise in the SoCal area under new head coach Daniel Stange.  Well done TD, we are so very proud of you and this tremendous accomplishment!

Dawgs win third consecutive series, beat VC

The Bulldogs cruised in game one (17-0), and earned a split in Saturday's double header with Valley Center.  Dajen Lee, Cameron Rowles, Adam Ramirez, Dylan Spacke, and Todd Roberts each had multiple hits in game one, pacing the Dawgs' 13-hit attack.  After a heartbreaking defeat in the first game of the DH (9-11), the Bulldogs bounced back to put their stamp on the series win in the afternoon game, pulling away 15-3.  The Bulldogs now stand at 8-1 in league play, one game back of Oceanside.







Bulldogs now 6-0 in league with sweep of Mission Vista

Two tight ballgames and one blowout with the Timberwolves, but the Bulldgos still walked away with a series sweep.  Todd Roberts was the star in game one, going the distance on the hill and also chipping in with two hits and an RBI during the 3 - 2 victory.  Game two was a runaway for the Dawgs, as they rolled up in Ramona 14 - 1.  Travis Marinshaw and Matt Abruzzo were dominant on the mound, each allowing only one hit during the contest.  Roberts continued to be hot at the plate, adding two doubles and two RBI with his three hits.  Dylan Spacke clubbed his team-leading fourth homerun.  The Bulldogs battled and came through late, winning 6 - 5 in 8 innings at Mission Vista in game three.  Pitchers Tyler Dick and Bryce Roe did very well and kept the game close, alllowing the Dawgs to sweep the series and improve to 6 - 0 in league play.  For the series, junior outfielder Adrian Collazo paced the offense, as he contributed 6 hits, 3 RBI, 2B, 3B, and a homerun.  The Bulldogs have now won seven games straight and are in first place in the Valley League.

Great clinic held for special needs kids

Some of the varsity baseball and softball players were recently fortunate enough to lend a hand during the annual clinic held for RHS students with disabilities.   It's such a joy to see all of these young men and women having such a great time together on the ball field.  Well done guys!  Thank you Coach Marshall and Coach Halfaker for giving us the opportunity to be a part of your tremendous program.  







Dawgs sweep Fallbrook to open Valley League play

The Bulldogs passed a huge test up in Fallbrook and continued on to take all three games against the Warriors in the first week of league action.  Hopefully this is a sign of a big turnaround for the second half of the season as the Bulldogs charge out to take the lead in the Valley League.  Game one saw senior Todd Roberts throw a gem on the mound, as the Dawgs came away with the 7 - 4 victory.  Game two in Fallbrook was dominated by senior RHP Travis Marinshaw.  Travis threw a complete game and beat one of the better pitchers in the county, 10-3.  Game three was all Dawgs on the offensive side, outscoring the Warriors 15 - 4.  Sophomore Bryce Roe jumped in and was very impressive on the hill in picking up the win.  The offensive leader for the series was Dylan Spacke (5 H, 6 R, 8 RBI, 2 HR).




Vincent traded to Mariners

Nick Vincent has been dealt to the Seattle Mariners just before the start of the season.  The Mariners were looking to bolster their bullpen, and they feel good about Nick filling a critical role in their quest for a pennant.  Although we won't get see him as much anymore, it's simply part of the game and the beginning of an exciting new chapter in his career.  Good luck Nick!

 Here is an article about the deal on ESPN.com -

-games start in January

-tryouts will be the first week of December ... dates TBA

Tuesday, October 13
Important meeting Friday at lunch

There will be an important informational meeting this Friday (10/16) in Coach Welch's room (i57).  All those interested in trying out this year need to attend.  We will discuss a general timeline for the year, fundraising, and new requirements for winterball.  Please bring your lunch so the meeting can get started right away.

LEAGUE CHAMPS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Dawgs have clinched the 2015 Valley League Championship!  With the resounding 17-4 victory over second place Oceanside at Lawler Field, coupled with the 7-2 win at Oceanside on Monday, the Bulldogs now move to being three games ahead of the Pirates in the standings with three games to play.  With winning at least two of the three games against Oceanside, the championship will once again be claimed by Ramona HS.  







Orange Glen gamed moved to Monday, 5/18

Due to the rain, Friday's Orange Glen game will now be played on Monday, May 18th.  This sets up a showdown next week with second-place Oceanside in a three game series.  Oceanside is one game behind the Bulldogs for first place in the Valley League.







Bats catch fire against OG

The boys came out swinging at home against Orange Glen, eventually totalling 22 runs in the series opener.  Every hitter in the starting lineup contributed at least one hit to the offensive barrage.  Senior backstop John Mackay blasted his third homerun of the season, while Adam Paredes, Cameron Rowles, and Blake Workman collected 3 RBI's apiece.  Adrian Collazo also had three hits on the day.  Blake Workman, Matt Abruzzo, Tyler Dick, and Adam Lobe each did their part on hill while shutting out the Patriots.






Snodgrass wins Gold Glove Award

Former Bulldog Jason Snodgrass has just won his second consecutive Gold Glove Award at Concordia University for the NAIA Western Region ... well done Jason!

Dawgs climb over .500

Visiting Valley Center was swept in a double header at Lawler field on Saturday, 2-0 and 7-1.  Game one at Valley Center on Wednesday saw the Bulldogs rack up the runs, coming away with a resounding 11-0 victory.  The Bulldogs now stand a game over .500 at 12-11, and first place in the Valley League at 8-1.  The series sweep against Valley Center gives the Bulldogs the series win against their first three league opponents.  Blake Workman (8 K's), Dylan Spacke (9 K's), and Zach Sherman (9 K's) were all dominant on the hill as they recorded victories during the week.  Matt Abruzzo and Tyler Dick slammed the door when given the save opportunities, with Dick actually picking up two saves.   Carl Bunday contributing 4 RBI's to the offensive effort during the series, providing key blows in games one and two.  The Dawgs now play at home on Wednesday and away on Friday, both against Orange Glen. 






Clinic held for special needs kids

The rain held off just long enough for the boys and girls of Ramona HS to have a great time taking part in the annual baseball/softball skills clinic held on Thursday.  Seniors Gage Canning, John Mackay, and Blake Workman teamed up with a handful of softball players to help out with the exciting clinic put on for the special needs kids of Mr. Marshall and Mrs. Halfaker.  Thank you Mr. Marshall and Mrs. Halfaker for letting us be a part of such a wonderful day!




Mission Vista swept in round two

On a muddy afternoon on Friday, the Bulldogs completed the series sweep against visiting Mission Vista.  This puts the Dawgs one game behind Oceanside for the lead league with a 5-1 record.  Game one saw another offensive explosion, with Cameron Rowles leading the way to a 17-4 victory.  Cameron was an amazing 5-for-5 on the day as he hit for the cycle.  Game two ended with a tally of 7-2, and game three saw the Dawgs come out on top 3-0.  Matt Abruzzo, Tyler Dick, and Blake Workman collected victories on the hill for the week.  The Bulldogs now travel to Valley Center on Wednesday before playing the Jaguars at home on Saturday in a double header.  






Bulldogs take opening league series against Fallbrook

Valley League play began with a critical matchup against the Fallbrook Warriors, who are making their first appearance in the league.  After dropping the first game of the series 4-9, the Bulldogs' bats came alive in games two and three, winning 13-4 and 17-5.  The offensive explosion was led by Todd Roberts, John Mackay, and Zach Sherman.  Roberts did a tremendous job at the top of the lineup, going 7-for-12 and scoring five times.  Senior backstop John Mackay continued his torrid pace by going 6-for-10 and scoring six times.  But the most impressive day was had by Zach Sherman at Fallbrook when he blasted three homeruns and collected nine RBI's!  The three homeruns and nine RBI's in a single game put Zach at the top of the record book for Ramona High School (tied with James Meador and J.K. Scott).

Historic season comes to a close

All good things must come to an end.  As was the case for the 2014 Bulldogs, who broke many individual and team records en route to a tremendous 26-win season (school record) and a Valley League championship.  The CIF title proved elusive, and the Division One crown run was stopped short by eventual champion Grossmont in the semi-finals.  Nevertheless, great memories were made and strong friendships were forged during the epic 2014 campaign.  And the boys ALWAYS handled themselves with class ... we couldn't be more proud of you boys!!!!!







Resounding victory over Steele Canyon

An offensive barrage was on display Saturday as the Bulldogs took care of business and had the last laugh against Steele Canyon.  The Dawgs walked away with an impressive 18-6 win in round three of the playoffs.  In all, 23 hits were collected on the day.  Tanner Williams, Carl Schwettmann, Cameron Rowles, CJ Broussard, Joel Mitchell, Gage Canning, and Jordan Farhat all recorded multiple hits.  Seven homeruns were belted by Williams (2), Broussard (2), Mitchell (2), and Canning.  The Bulldogs now move on to the semi-finals against Grossmont at home on Tuesday at 3:30.  Per CIF, admission will be charged....$9 for adults and $5 for students.





Poway eliminated, next up: Steele Canyon

On Friday, the Bulldogs beat Poway 5-1 behind a strong pitching performance by CJ Broussard.  Tanner Williams led off the game with a homerun on the very first pitch and the Dawgs never looked back.  Joel Mitchell paced the offense by going 2-for-3 with 2 RBI's and scoring two runs.  Poway is now eliminated from the playoffs.  The Bulldogs now face Steele Canyon on Saturday in a rematch from round one. 







Thursday, May 29
Dawgs host Poway on Friday in CIF playoffs

After coming up short in a tough matchup against Steele Canyon (4-5), the Bulldogs now play Friday at home against Poway at 3:30.  The Dawgs beat the Titans earlier in the season 5 - 2 when they squared off in the North County Tournament.  The winner of this game moves on to play Saturday at 11:00 in round three of the Division One playoffs.  The loser is out of the double-elimination tournament.

Regular season ends with victory #24

In a make-up game at Valley Center on Wednesday, the Dawgs came away with a solid 5-2 win and a series sweep against the Jaguars.  CJ Broussard did a tremendous job at the plate and on the hill.  CJ wrapped up league action by going 3-for-4 with 4 RBI's and surrendering just two runs in six solid innings of work as the starting pitcher.  Freshman infielder Cameron Rowles was red hot, going a perfect 3-for-3 and scoring three runs.  That concludes the regular season for the Bulldogs (24-5 overall, 14-1 league), with the CIF playoffs on deck next week.






Tuesday, May 20
Dawgs bust out the brooms at Oceanside

On Monday, the Bulldogs completed the series sweep against the Oceanside Pirates.  With the win, the Bulldogs have now clinched an outright championship and stand undefeated in league action at 13-0 (23-4 overall).  Offensively, good days were had by Tanner Williams, Joel Mitchell, Todd Roberts, and Zach Sherman, as each had multiple hits against the Pirates.  Blake Workman scattered five hits through six innings to pick up the victory on the mound.  He also fanned nine hitters before giving way to closer Dylan Spacke in the seventh.

Game two vs. Oceanside goes to Ramona = League Champs

Thursday's originally scheduled game against Oceanside has been moved to Monday.  However, Saturday's game deemed playable, and the Bulldogs didn't skip a beat.  CJ Broussard was absolutely dominating on the hill.  The senior RHP took a no-hitter into the sixth inning, and ended the day only allowing two hits while punching out sixteen Pirates.  Sophomore Todd Roberts paced the Bulldogs offensively, going 2-for-3 with a run scored and 3 RBI's.  With the victory, the Bulldogs have clinched the Valley League Championship!  Well done boys!







Oceanside falls in critical game one

In the first game of the series against second place Oceanside, the Bulldogs walked away with a hard fought 4-3 victory.  On a terribly windy day, the Dawgs battled through the tough conditions by scoring single runs in the 5th, 6th, and 7th inning.  Senior pitcher Kyle Wilson went the distance and upped his win total to nine on the season.  Gage Canning and John Mackay recorded two hits apiece, while Tanner Williams scored three runs, including the game winner in the bottom of the seventh on a bases loaded play at the plate.

The hits just keep coming....

Another double-digit run display by the Bulldogs puts them up by three games over Del Norte as the hunt for the league title is heating up.  Click here for the great article in the Union Tribune about our boys and the 10-0 victory.  The Bulldogs now face Oceanside in a three-game series next week with the games on Tuesday and Saturday being at home.  The Pirates are two games back in the league standings.  






Thursday, May 8
Bulldogs come out swinging vs. Del Norte

In Tuesday's matchup against the first and second place teams in the Valley League, the Bulldogs pushed across five runs in the opening frame and never looked back.  Amazingly, the Dawgs then went on to beat the Nighthawks 19-1.  Senior RHP Kyle Wilson battled the tough weather by twirling six strong innings on the mound.  Kyle scattered five hits to go along with his six strikeouts and one walk.  Sophomore Zach Sherman had quite the day at Rocky Lawler field.  Zach was a blistering 4-for-5 with four runs scored, four RBI's, two doubles, and his first homerun of the season.  He also threw a scoreless seventh inning without surrendering a hit.  Good job Dawgs!  Now it's on to the second game of the critical series at Del Norte on Thursday.







Sweep of DH/series against Orange Glen

Saturday's twin bill against the Orange Glen Patriots saw quite the offensive explosion.  In game one, the Dawgs outscored the Patriots 16-0.  Tanner Williams and Carl Schwettmann hit homeruns, while John Mackay was a perfect 4-for-4.  The true highlight however was delivered by senior CJ Broussard.  Broussard completely dominated the Patriots, throwing his first no-hitter!  The Bulldogs then completed the afternoon by beating Orange Glen 35-0 in game two.  That score total ranks 7th all-time in CIF history.  The 20-run inning that was involved also ranks 5th all-time in CIF history.  Williams had four hits in the game, and homeruns came from Schwettmann (2) and Blake Workman (his first).  Workman also pitched his way to his third victory of the season.   Schwettmann was absolutely on fire! The senior outfielder hit for the cycle, going 5-for-6.  Both games were shortened in the fifth inning due to the mercy rule.  The Dawgs now stand 18-4 overall and 8-0 in league.  Next up is a showdown against second place Del Norte on Tuesday at home.  Del Norte won the league last year by one game on the last day of the season against the Dawgs.  This should be a good matchup!







Tuesday, May 6

Bats keep rolling at OG

The offense stayed hot at Orange Glen in the first game of the series as the Bulldogs walked away with a solid 8-0 victory.  In all, nine Bulldogs chipped in with base hits.  Gage Canning and John Mackay led the way with two hits apiece.  CJ Broussard recorded 2 RBI's and Canning scored two runs during the ballgame.  Canning also ripped a triple and had one stolen base.  Senior RHP Kyle Wilson cruised towards his team and league-leading seventh win, while sophomore Zach Sherman blanked the Patriots in the final two frames.  The final two games of the series will come by way of a double header at Rocky Lawler field on Saturday starting at 10:30.  The Bulldogs are now 16-4 overall and 6-0 in league.

In return to Valley League play, the Bulldogs came out on top in the first two games versus Valley Center, 3-0 and 10-5.  The third game of the series has been postponed due to rain and will be made up later in the season.  Game two saw the thunderous bats come back to life in Ramona, as eight separate Bulldogs registered hits.  CJ Broussard, Jonathan Doulgeropoulos, Zach Sherman, and Jordan Farhat banged out multiple hits, while Sherman, Farhat, and Gage Canning had 2 RBI's apiece.  Broussard picked up the victory, and Dylan Spacke wrapped things up on the hill.  The first-place Bulldogs now take their undefeated league record (5-0 & 15-4 overall) to Orange Glen on Tuesday.







Dawgs come up short against Helix in semi's

A great game that could have gone either way went to Helix today in the semifinals of the Premier Division in the Lions Tournament, which was played at beautiful Pt. Loma Nazarene University.  Helix came out on top by the score of 2-1 and would later that day win the championship by beating Steele Canyon 1-0.  Both sides played very well, but it just wasn't our day.  It was an unfortunate outcome for sophomore RHP Dylan Spacke.  Dylan was making his first varsity start on the hill and limited the Scotties to only three hits and two runs on the day in seven strong innings.  It is now back to league action for the Bulldogs as they travel to Valley Center on Tuesday.  It sure was a great run in the tourney.....






Dawgs end pool play 3-0 in Lions Tourney

After a series sweep of league opponent Mission Vista that saw the Bulldogs score 48 runs, the Bulldogs then began the prestigious Lions Tournament during Spring Break.  With wins over San Ysidro (8-0), La Costa Canyon (3-1), and now Coronado (7-1), the Dawgs stand undefeated in their bracket and will play in the semi-finals against Helix at Pt. Loma Nazarene University tomorrow morning.  In Wednesday's matchup against last year's Nevada State Champion, Coronado, good pitching and good hitting was the theme of the day.  CJ Broussard went the distance on the mound, only surrendering one run while striking out seven.  Eight total Bulldogs collected base hits on the day, while Carl Schwettmann and Joel Mitchell slugged round-trippers.  Gage Canning, Zach Sherman, and Jordan Farhat had multiple hits against the Panthers.

Sulser fans 10 in no-hit bid

Cole Sulser (Class of 2008) struck out ten in his latest outing for the Mahoning Valley Scrappers, coming just short of throwing a no-hitter.  The no-hitter would have been the second consecutive gem in as many games for the Scrappers.  It was also the second consecutive outing for Sulser in which he finished the game with ten punch outs.  Way to go Cole!  Check out the link below for an article on the game....

Vincent closes out stellar season with the Padres

Nick Vincent came on to get the San Diego Padres out of a jam in the seventh inning vs. the San Francisco Giants in the final game of the season on Sunday.  Even though the Padres eventually lost the game 7-6, the 2004 RHS alum concluded his second season in Major League Baseball in typical fashion.  Vincent finished the year with a 2.14 ERA, a 6-3 win-loss record, and one save.  He appeared in 45 games and only allowed 33 hits in 46 1/3 innings while striking out 49 batters and walking 11.  He wound up with eight no-hit, shutout relief appearances in his final eight games dating back to September 11.


Vincent lowered his career ERA to 1.98.  Over parts of two MLB seasons, the right-hander has an 8-3 win-loss record and one save.  He's appeared in 72 major league games, allowing 52 hits in 72 2/3 innings, striking out 77 and walking 18.  


Vincent relieved Tim Stauffer, who started the inning.  He got Pablo Sandoval to ground out to first base to end the inning after the Giants had pushed across two runs that were both charged to Stauffer.

Dawgs go extras to improve to 2-0

At home on Tuesday, the Bulldogs pulled out an exciting win in extra innings, besting Murrieta Valley 4-3.  Starting pitcher CJ Broussard was superb through six innings, limiting the Nighthawks to 3 hits on 6 strikeouts.  The lead slipped away in the seventh, but that only set the stage for some exciting bonus baseball.  Sophomore Zach Sherman pitched out of some very tight spots to earn his first varsity victory by blanking the Nighthawks in the eighth and ninth innings.  Joel Mitchell came through in the bottom of the ninth with a clutch single to left, scoring Sherman from second base with the game winner.  Mitchell also stroked his first homerun of the season with a blast to right field earlier in the game.  






Another tight tourney victory

On Saturday, the Bulldogs made the most of their 5 hits on the day, as they cashed them in for 3 runs and sent Murrieta Mesa home with a 3-1 defeat.  Senior Kyle Wilson scattered eight hits by only allowing one run to the Rams and improving his record to 2-0.  Shortstop Jordan Farhat provided the bulk of the offense, scoring all three runs himself.  Jordan blasted his first homerun of the season in the third inning and was a beast on the bases in the sixth as he scored a critical run with some impressive hustle.   Dylan Spacke slammed the door in the final two frames to preserve the win.  On Thursday, the Dawgs simply made too many mistakes and were beat by perennial power Great Oak 5-2.   Junior pitcher Blake Workman was outstanding, limiting Great Oak to only 2 hits as he collected 6 strikeouts.  The Bulldogs now stand 3-1 in the Pirate-Falcon Classic and face Escondido at home on Tuesday.

Homerun barrage and sharp pitching lift Dawgs over #1 Poway

On Tuesday, the Bulldogs (ranked #9 in San Diego) opened up the North County Tournament at Poway (ranked #1 in San Diego / #20 in the nation).  Senior shortstop Jordan Farhat got things going in the first inning as he blasted his second homerun of the season to left field.  The Dawgs tallied runs in each of the next two innings and collected two more critical runs in the fifth on John Mackay's first round-tripper of the year.  Jonathan Doulgeropoulos (HR, 2B) and CJ Broussard (2 hits) were also key contributors in the offensive effort.  It was a team effort however, as stellar pitching and solid defense were on display in Poway.  Senior righthander Kyle Wilson through a complete game, scattering six hits in seven innings while only allowing two runs in the 5-2 victory.  






Friday, March 28

A hard fought battle against a great team ended in style yesterday as the Bulldogs beat San Marcos in eight innings 8-6 on Joel Mitchell's two-run homerun.  Mitchell was a blistering 4-for-5 during the game to go along with the walkoff blast.  Zach Sherman (3 hits) and Carl Schwettmann (2 hits) also contributed on offense and were critical in each of the run-producing rallies.  On the hill, CJ Broussard went six strong innings followed by Dylan Spacke in the seventh and eighth.  Spacke picked up his first varsity win with the outing.






Late inning surge key against Fallbrook

The Dawgs pulled away late in the game against Fallbrook, who came in to the contest with only one loss on the season.  With the game tied 3-3 in the sixth, your home team managed to cash in five runs, the key blow being a grand slam by senior slugger Joel Mitchell.  Seven Bulldogs collected hits on the day, while CJ Broussard had two.  Broussard turned in a great performance at Rocky Lawler field as he threw a complete game and blasted a homerun to right field himself.  Even after a couple of tough late losses to El Camino (2-3) and La Costa Canyon (3-4), the Bulldogs finished the prestigious North County Tournament with a winning record at 3-2.  It's now off to Mission Vista on Tuesday with the start of Valley League action.  






Valley League play starts with a bang

On Tuesday, the Bulldogs began their quest for a Valley League title when they traveled to Mission Vista in Oceanside.  Things couldn't have gone much better, as the Bulldogs came away with the victory by a score of 15-1.  Seven Bulldogs recorded multiple hits during the tremendous offensive display.  In all, the Dawgs collected 19 hits, including two homeruns and 5 RBI's by red-hot Joel Mitchell.  Junior right hander Blake Workman wouldn't need much support however while he completely dominated the Timberwolves, limiting them to only two hits on the day.  Workman worked five strong innings and allowed only one runner to reach second base.   Sophomore Zach Sherman finished up a scoreless sixth and seventh inning on the hill.  The Dawgs will face the Timberwolves again on Thursday at home (3:30) in the second game of a three game series.
