WEEKLY ATHLETICS RECAP

Chabot sports roundup, May 8

 

TRACK AND FIELD

The Gladiators will send a solid group to the CCCAA NorCal Championships on Saturday at De Anza College.

Bret Greene has already qualified in the 10k for the CCCAA State Championship May 19-20 at American River, and will vie for a spot in the 5K this weekend in NorCals. He is ranked fourth in Northern California in the 5k.

David Frisbie and Jordan Kirby are both in good position to qualify for state in men’s 800 meters. Frisbie is ranked second in the state and Kirby is ranked ninth and fourth in Northern California. The top four finishers Saturday will advance.

In women’s events, Chabot’s Ari Milton has a chance to qualify in all three of her events – the 100 hurdles, 400 hurdles and triple jump. Chabot’s Maurcedez Potts is in the men’s 400 and Dylan Zollinger the pole vault.

Chabot coach Kyle Robinson says all of his NorCal participants have a chance to qualify for state.

BASEBALL

Despite a gallant effort, the 13th seeded Chabot (25-17) fell short in the Northern regional playoffs first round. No. 4 seed Sacramento City (30-12) scored four times in the bottom of the eighth inning in the decisive third game to take a 5-1 win Saturday and take the series two games to one.

Chabot’s Jacob Knight worked 4.2 shutout innings of relief to highlight Chabot’s effort, and first baseman Nick Hermes was 2 for 2.

The Gladiators, the Coast-Golden Gate runner-up, took a thrilling 2-1 win in 11 innings earlier Saturday to force the third game, as starter Levi Noddin worked a yeoman-like 10 innings, scattering nine hits, striking out six and walking two. Reliever Marcus Dubois worked the 11th inning to get the win, allowing one hit.

In the riveting struggle, Chabot and Sacramento City were scoreless in the sixth through 10th innings, and then Chabot broke the 1-1 tie on Vince Volpatti’s RBI infield single with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 11th. Nathan White scored the winning run. The Gladiators took a 1-0 lead in the first inning on Steven Nice’s RBI single, scoring Francisco Pedraza.

Pedraza, Nathan White and Hunter Harris each had two hits in the win.

Sacramento City opened the series on Friday with an 8-2 win.
