Mountain View High’s Vicky Wong competes in Saturday’s CCS championship meet. She advanced to state in four events.

St. Francis High made the biggest splash among the local schools competing in the Central Coast Section swimming and diving championships, but Los Altos and Mountain View made more than a ripple Saturday at the Santa Clara International Swim Center.

St. Francis qualified 17 competitors for this weekend’s state meet – the most in school history – while Los Altos will send seven to Fresno and Mountain View four.

Spartans sunk by Palo Alto in league finals

Mountain View High’s Bryan Rau pitches against Palo Alto Thursday afternoon.

Mountain View High still had hope in the last inning of Thursday’s baseball game against top seed Palo Alto, but the third-seeded Spartans’ rally came up short and the Vikings prevailed 5-3 to sweep the best-of-three series to determine the league champion.

With the bases loaded and his team down 5-2 with no outs in the seventh, Mountain View’s Grant Gambetta smashed a pitch to left field that the home fans hoped would sail over the fence. Instead, the ball fell shy of the fence and into the glove of Paly’s left fielder. Tristan Silveira tagged from third base to make it a two-run game, but that’s as close at the Spartans would get. Matthew Zepeda grounded into a double play to end the game.

Pinewood claims first league title in baseball with win over Summit

Pinewood School’s first league championship in baseball didn’t come easy. The Panthers fell behind early but rallied late to beat Summit Prep 6-3 Thursday to claim the Private School Athletic League title.

“The game was exactly what you hope a championship game will be like,” Pinewood coach Casey Rowe said. “(There was) great action all game long and two competitive teams going at it.”
