The SJND baseball team defeated four opponents on its way to claiming the Div. V crown. 

After beating The Bay School of San Francisco (17-1) on May 24 and Head Royce of Oakland (11-2) on May 27, the Pilots ran into Stuart Hall of San Francisco on June 1 in the semifinals.

The St. Joseph Notre Dame (SJND) men’s basketball team took down Woodside Priory Portola Valley 61-50 on its home court in the NorCal Div. V quarterfinals last Saturday, March 12. 
The Pilots were in control of the contest from the onset. Their defense held the Panthers to just seven first quarter points. Meanwhile, the Pilots offensive tallied 19 points to give them a double-digit lead at the end of the first period.


All six Alameda high school basketball teams are competing in the North Coast Section (NCS) playoffs in their respective divisions.
