Falcons showing prowess

Jeffrey Mitchell, pictured right in a 2012 game, and the College Park High baseball team are off to a good start in their quest to defend their Diablo Valley Athletic League title. The Falcons, coming off their first league championship in more than a decade, have started the season 4-2-1 overall and 2-0 in league play under new head coach Andy Tarpley. The Falcons recently got a boost with the return of sophomore star Joe DeMers, who was part of the College Park basketball team's run to the Division II state title game. Mitchell also returns to the baseball team after the long basketball season.
