ARCADIA –
Arcadia High School was probably beginning to wonder if it would ever win its invitational baseball tournament again.
The Apaches, who hadn’t scored the tourney title in nearly a decade, put an end to those worries on Wednesday.
Austin Georgen gave up two hits and struck out seven in five innings and Arcadia combined three doubles with three Glendora errors in the first three innings en route to a 4-1 victory over the Tartans in the Arcadia Invitational championship game.
Brendan Toy had a double and scored two runs for the Apaches, who improved to 10-5. Glendora, getting two hits and an RBI from Garrett Ouellette, slipped to 11-5
Arcadia coach Nick Lemas: We’re playing our best baseball right now. It’s exciting. We’ve been in the championship game (against Glendora) before, and we finally got them. We were able to hit the ball a little bit in the first inning and take advantage of some mistakes that they made. We were able to get it done. It means a lot, because I don’t think we’ve won it since 2004. It’s been a long time, so it feels good.”
Glendora coach Dan Henley: We had opportunities. They weren’t huge opportunities, but we just failed to put the ball in play. They are a quality opponent and are on a roll right now. We were very happy to be in this game. No, we don’t like the result, but we’ll learn from it.”
