Sports on the Side

SF runner Skahill lands CCS scholarship

Eagle Pool closed until next week

The city of Mountain View reported that its downtown Eagle Pool will be closed through Sunday for annual maintenance. All programs, including lap swim and classes, have moved to Rengstorff Pool, 201 S. Rengstorff Ave., during the closure. For more information, visit mountainview.gov/aquatics.

Unsettled outcome

First came the run, then came the rain in Thursday’s extra-inning baseball game between rival high schools Los Altos and Mountain View. The teams played to a scoreless tie until the top of the ninth inning, when the Eagles’ Ben Parker drove home Max Higareda.

Then the drizzle turned into steady rain, and the umpires called the Santa Clara Valley Athletic League De Anza Division game before the host Spartans could get their chance at bat. The game may or may not be continued later in the season, according to Mountain View coach Kris Mims, who added that it would likely go down as a tie unless the result would impact the league standings.

Thrust into the starting lineup due to a teammate’s injury, the Los Altos High graduate played an integral role in the Nittany Lions’ recent upset of Ohio State – ranked No. 1 nationally in men’s volleyball.

Lancers fall for first time in boys volleyball

For the second straight season, the St. Francis High boys volleyball team entered April undefeated – and won’t end it that way.

Thursday night, league rival Bellarmine snapped the Lancers’ 20-match winning streak. The host Bells prevailed 25-22, 21-25, 25-22, 25-20.
