The College Park High baseball team and the Alhambra softball team both celebrated North Coast Section championships. J.R. Santiago (top photo) and the Falcons' baseball team finished a record-breaking season with a 7-2 victory over Marin Catholic-Kentfield in the NCS Division II final on May 31 at Diablo Valley College. Nick Oar hit a three-run home run and pitcher Joe DeMers scattered five hits while also adding a two-run homer. College Park set a school mark for wins with its 27-3 record. The team also set school records in most runs scored and fewest runs scored against. USA Baseball has taken notice of College Park's strong program and invited the team to Cary, N.C. in March 2015 for the National High School Invitational Classic. Meanwhile, Alhambra's softball team (with Karlee Sparacino, Briana Perez and Kylee Perez pictured from left) beat Carondelet 5-0 for the Division II crown at Saint Mary's College on May 30. The win capped a dominant season for the Bulldogs, who finished the year with a 25-2 record and outscored their playoff opponents 45-3. Cara DiMercurio had a big offensive game for Alhambra, blasting a three run homer and driving in four runs total in the championship game.
