La Jolla High baseball comes up short in Lions Tournament semis

By Phil Dailey

The La Jolla baseball team had a solid run this past week in the annual Lions Tournament, falling just short of the 4A Division title game in a 3-2 loss at Westview.

For the Vikings (10-6 as of Monday), the early part of the season has gone well as the team has put up 103 runs in the team’s 16 games. The team opened up Western League play with a 7-5 win over Coronado on Monday.

On the season, Bobby Shuman leads the team with a .429 batting average that includes nine doubles. Austin Burke (.385) and Kevin Usselman (.419) have also been key factors with the Vikings’ success, combining for 30 RBI.

The team played Coronado again Wednesday and will travel to Point Loma for another Western League showdown on Friday.

Torreys still hot on the diamond

The La Jolla Country Day baseball team has continued their hot start to the season, finishing the first half of the season with a 10-4 record.

The Torreys stepped up to the Premiere Division of the Lions Tournament this season, but lost their first game to Chaparral (Temecula) in the opener. The Torreys, however, won their final three games with a 1-0 win over Coronado, a 9-1 win over San Ysidro and a 9-6 win over Ramona. The team lost to Ramona in the season opener, 6-5.
