Baseball: Chaminade wins title and ninth consecutive game
There might not be a hotter baseball team in Southern California than West Hills Chaminade, which won the Anaheim Lions tournament by shutting out Riverside North, 2-0, for its ninth consecutive victory and 12th in the last 13 games.
Brando Tessar, named the tournament MVP, struck out 10 and allowed two hits. Another key player has been Dalton Brown, who had four saves and 11 strikeouts in the tournament. Michael Dingilian had the game-winning RBI.
Of course, Chaminade (13-3) plays in the Mission League, which is beginning to look like the Trinity League when it comes to top teams. The Eagles, Encino Crespi (14-3) and Mission Hills Alemany (13-3) all could be Southern Section Division II title contenders.
