CHABOT BASEBALL SURGES INTO SUPER REGIONAL

After polishing off seventh-seed Laney in the CCCAA Northern Regional, the Chabot baseball team will continue its sterling bounce-back season in the Super Regional this week.
The Gladiators (25-13), seeded 10th, will travel to No. 4 Cabrillo (27-11) for a best-of-three series. The teams will meet at 2 p.m. Friday and 1 p.m. Saturday, and a third game will be played at noon Sunday, if needed.
Chabot beat Cabrillo 10-4 in a midweek game on March 1 at Gene Wellman Field in the teams' only meeting this season, but the Seahawks have won their past 12 in a row.
Cabrillo swept De Anza in the regional, 13-4, 4-3.
In a statement for the Coast-Golden Gate, three teams from the conference, Chabot, No. 11 CSM and No. 5 Mission, are still standing in the Super Regional.
"Our conference, from top to bottom, is largely improved," Chabot coach Steve Friend said.
With a knack for the big inning, Chabot swept host Laney 14-2 and 8-1 in the regional.
In the 14-2 win, which started after a two-hour rain delay, Michael Echavia stayed hot with a grand slam in a seven-run eighth inning.
Echavia, who is headed to Nevada-Reno, is ninth in the state in RBIs with 44. He leads the team in hits with 55 and in doubles with 13.
Friend praised his team's energy and effort in the opener. He liked how his players reacted to the rain delay.
"We sat for two hours, came out and played our game. I was happy with our response," Friend said.
Also in the blowout, Steven Nice was 2 for 3 with a home run and a double. Michael Hidalgo had two doubles, and Kenny Corey had one.
In the 8-1 win, Max Sanderson and Nice both had two RBIs and a double. Jesse Lewis had two hits, including a double, and an RBI. Jacob Knight worked 3.0 shutout innings for the win.
The Gladiators amassed 14 hits in the win over the Seahawks, led by Hidalgo, who was 3 for 4 with a double. Arizona-bound leadoff Cal Stevenson, who is No. 2 in the state with 36 walks and tied for ninth in stolen bases with 19, had two hits, two RBIs and two runs scored. Kenny Corey had a double and a triple, and Lewis belted a home run. Sanderson and Nate Kanat had two hits apiece.
Kevin Nava went six strong innings, allowing one run and striking out six to get the win.
