“For the rest of the season, we expect to do the same thing we did this week and defend our league title,” said senior Connor Loucks, the catcher on the Carlmont baseball team.

The other players mirrored Loucks’s determination to defend Carlmont’s league title and place first for the fourth time. With a 4-1 victory against Burlingame High School, the Scots have a good start on their way to first place.

After the victory, head coach Rich Vallero said, “I was happy with the fight. Burlingame is typically a really good team in our league, so beating them is a testament to our guys. They kept grinding and hung in there.”
