During the spring break some local high schools chose to take time off from their games while others took advantage of an opportunity to play often.
Brentwood was the most ambitious of Westside schools this year, traveling to Florida to compete in the Panama City Tournament. While the Eagles gained experience they didn’t fare well on the field, coming home without a victory.
After losing their opening game the previous week Brentwood lost to Walton of Florida, 7-5 and Milan of Tennessee, 2-0. Brentwood returned home and played three more times – losing to Paraclete, 12-0, defeating the same team, 7-6 and losing to Estancia, 7-5.
Malibu lost to Oaks Christian, 5-0, evening their season record at 7-7.
Venice lost to Grant, 4-3 and San Clemente, 3-0, then earned its first win of the season outside of Western League play with a 9-3 win over Muir.
Palisades lost to Centennial of Las Vegas, 12-3, defeated Liberty of Nevada, 9-4 and lost to Kennedy of the LA City Section, 8-0.
There wasn’t a lot of softball activity due to the spring break. Santa Monica High was among the many teams that didn’t schedule games.
St. Monica played twice, defeating St. Matthias, 3-0 but losing to St. Paul, 8-0.
Crossroads defeated Calvary Chapel, 2-1 and New Roads had a 3-1 win over Archer.
