The Alameda high school baseball/softball season has ended with all of the teams coming up short of their ultimate goal of winning a North Coast Section (NCS) title.
The Alameda High School (AHS) baseball team entered the NCS Div. II playoffs as the No. 11 seed. They upset the No. 6 seed Sir Francis Drake of San Anselmo 8-4 on May 15. Five days later they defeated Windsor High School 14-4. The Hornets’ run at a NCS title ended with a 10-0 loss to Benicia High School on May 24. The Hornets finished with a 17-10 overall record.
Alameda High School (AHS) graduate Maddy Lewis and her UC San Diego (UCSD) softball team were eliminated from the Div. II College Softball World Series Friday, May 24. The Tritons were knocked off by West Chester University, 7-6, in the tournament’s consolation game.
In the contest Lewis, a third baseman, went 1-for-2 at the plate and drove in a run while scoring twice herself. West Chester made an improbable comeback scoring four runs in the sixth and two runs in the seventh after trailing 5-0 in the bottom of the fifth inning. UCSD finished with a 37-17 overall record.

“We are excited for Kobe (Marion),” EHS Athletic Director Kevin Gorham said. “This track team has really excelled this year, and we couldn’t be more proud than to see Kobe qualify.”
