“We’re not going to sacrifice the integrity of our program for rankings and records. We’re going to continue to play as difficult a schedule as we can. We think our body of work over the last six years, which includes three CIF championships, is one of the top programs in Southern California. Win or lose, we’re going to play a tough schedule and when all is said and done, we’re hoping our schedule has prepared us to play for a championship.
“It doesn’t get any easier, we got Lakewood, Tesoro, Alemany, Agoura, and you got to welcome the challenge. We’re scuffling right now, but we’re going to find a way to lick our wounds and pick ourselves up. We need to find out who the real tough guys are. We need to circle the wagons together and find out what we’re made of. This program has flourished for many years, and now it’s gut-check time.” — Bishop Amat coach Andy Nieto, who talks at length with the Scouting Guru at the 9:15 mark.

It was about time the Chatsworth baseball team scored some runs.
After scoring two runs or less in five of their first eight games, the Chancellors broke out Wednesday for a 9-2 intersectional victory against perennial state power Bishop Amat at USC’s Dedeuax Field.
The big blow came from No. 9 hitter Garrett Kueber, who tripled home three runs in the fourth.
Kueber, who only had one hit the entire season, lined a fastball into left-center that rolled all the way to the wall.
“I was looking for a fastball and just went with it,” Kueber said. “I squared up real good on that pitch. It felt good.”
Chatsworth coach Tom Meusborn added: “It was a great time for it. He stung it.”
