The Alameda High baseball team made its way to 8-8-1 on the season by winning two of its last three games.
The Hornets split a home-and-home with Bishop O’ Dowd of Oakland last Wednesday and Thursday, April 16 and 17. The Dragons won game one, on the Dragons home field, in a 12-2 blowout.

But the Dragons tied the game in the second inning, scored two runs in the third and fourth and six runs in the sixth inning.
Sunshine was the forecast for last Thursday’s Alameda Women’s Golf Club’s net tournament event on the Earl Fry Course. The previous week’s event had to be cancelled due to rain.
The event saw 30 golfers participate, but there could be only one winner and that was Stephanie Bellato.
The St. Joseph men’s golf team notched its tenth win of the year last week against Pinole Valley at the Chuck Corica Golf Course. The Pilots put on an overall team performance with three of its five players shooting in the mid-30s. James Lemos shot a low of 36 (one over par), Thomas Lee shot 38 (three over par), and Octavio Guzman shot 39 (four over par).
“These three players have done a great job in helping the team get to 10-1, along with the help of R.J. Pimentel and Joey DiGiuillio,” said Coach Vic Quintell.
