Mustang Softball Pounds Calistoga to Tie for 1st Place

The Mustang softball team pounded out 11 hits against the visiting Calistoga Wildcats to win 11-1 in five innings. This victory currently ties St. Vincent with Calistoga for the league lead in the NCL II with one week remaining on the schedule. The game started on a nervous note as the Wildcats connected for 1 run in the top of the 1st inning making good contact on St. Vincent pitcher Hannah Sarlatte. But those nerves were soon put to rest as the Mustangs scored 9 runs in the bottom of the 1st to take full command of the game. The offensive juggernaut was led by Sophomore Haley Antonini as she crushed a home run over the left field fence hitting DeCarli gymnasium in the process. Antonini had quite a day going 2×3 with 4 RBIs and crossed the plate 3 times. Other leading hitters for the Mustangs were McKenna Wilson-Kay 2×3 (RBI), Alexis Torres 1×3; Mary Cerf 1×3 (double, 2 RBI); Katelyn DeLaMontanya 2×3 (triple, RBI); and Kelly Stuhldreher 1×3. Of note, senior Alexis Torres had another spectacular catch in center field (ESPN highlight worthy) to take away a hit for the Wildcats. In the previous outing vs. Calistoga, Torres had a great running catch crashing into the outfield fence at Calistoga. The Wildcats must be wondering what it takes to get a hit past the Mustang centerfielder. Defensively, the Mustangs committed no errors behind Sarlatte. The Wildcats could not match this effort in committing 6 errors in the game, with most, if not all of them in the 1st inning. As the teams move forward into the last week of the season, it looks possible that a playoff game will be in their future.  Both teams are currently 7-1 in league with St. Vincent at 11-9 overall. If the game is to be played, due to the league tie-breaking system, it will be played at Calistoga.

Press Democrat Selects Sarlatte as Female Athlete of the Year

DSC_0249Last night, the Santa Rosa Press Democrat had their annual awards presentation and senior Hannah Sarlatte was selected Female Athlete of the Year (small schools division). Hannah was also nominated for Scholar-Athlete of the Year, but was deemed more worthy by the Press Democrat committee for the Athlete of the Year Award. Hannah’s selection was one of eight on the night representing all schools large and small in the Redwood Empires.   While at St. Vincent, Hannah has excelled playing volleyball and softball for the Mustangs. Besides being All-League in both sports many times, she has also been selected to the All-Empire teams. Her overall GPA is currently 4.21 and she has devoted numerous hours of service volunteering as a youth coach and teacher’s aide. UC Davis has become Hannah’s college of choice for the fall and the community of St. Vincent High School wishes her the best for her future.

Other nominations by the administration of St. Vincent High School were also honored last night by the Press Democrat. Senior Joey Wertz was nominated for Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year and senior George Sammon was nominated for Male Athlete of the Year. Joey has excelled in the athletic arena in the sports of cross-country and golf. During all four years of golf, Joey was instrumental in the golf team achieving the CMC championships every year of his participation. But as much as he excelled in the athletic arena, Joey has truly demonstrated what a scholar-athlete should be. His overall GPA is a 4.47 while taking every AP course St. Vincent High School has to offer. He has been student body president this year as well as devoting many  volunteer hours in the emergency room at Petaluma Valley Hospital. Joey currently plans to attend UC San Diego in the fall.  Senior George Sammon has been All-League and All-Empire in the sports of football and baseball. He was also selected All-State last year in the sport of baseball. George was able to set the single season touchdown record this year at St. Vincent HS as well as the playoff game rushing record. George plans to attend La Cuesta Junior College in the fall with hopes of making the baseball team. Congratulations are extended to Joey and George with wishes for a successful collegiate experience!

Baseball Loses to Sonoma Academy in the 8th Inning

It took one extra inning to decide the league contest vs. Sonoma Academy, and St. Vincent lost 3-2. The Mustangs had the opportunity to win in the bottom of the 7th with runners on base and nobody out, but the next three batters struck out. It was a dominant pitching performance by both teams throughout the game as the Coyotes of Sonoma Academy could only muster 4 hits and the Mustangs 5 hits. The opportunities were there for the Mustangs as the Coyotes committed 4 errors, but the Mustang offense struggled at the plate with 13 strike outs. The losing pitcher of record was Sky Doble. Leading hitters for St. Vincent were George Sammon 1×3 (home run, RBI) and Liam Galten 2×4. The Mustangs drop into 2nd place in the NCL II (behind Sonoma Academy) at 7-1 with an overall record of 15-4. The team is looking forward to a rematch vs. the Coyotes on May 22 at Doyle Park in Santa Rosa at 7:00.

Big Games This Week for Baseball/Softball

The Mustang Varsity baseball and softball teams have a big challenge this week as they compete for the league championship. After defeating Tomales last Friday 5-0, the Varsity baseball team will take on Sonoma Academy tomorrow at St. Vincent to determine the league leader in the NCL II. Both teams are currently undefeated in league heading into their first clash of the league schedule. Meanwhile, the Varsity softball team will take on Calistoga on Friday at St. Vincent HS for the second time after losing earlier in the season to the Wildcats 8-7. It looks like a “two horse” race as both Sonoma Academy and Calistoga are currently the only teams to pose a challenge to the Mustangs. The St. Vincent Varsity baseball team is currently 15-3 overall and 7-0 in league, with the Coyotes of Sonoma Academy at 12-2 overall and 6-0 in league. The Varsity softball team is 9-9 overall and 5-1 in league, with the Wildcats of Calistoga at 13-7 overall and 6-0 in league. Exciting times this week on the diamond at St. Vincent High School!
