SANTEE (4-24-14) — A call overturned on appeal allowed the go-ahead run to score in the 7th inning Wednesday (Apr. 23), giving El Capitan High undisputed possession of the Grossmont Valley League lead after nipping host Santana, 2-1.

With a pair of Vaqueros baserunners in scoring position, Sultans shortstop SYDNEY VATES made a heads-up play in an attempt to register an out to end the inning.

On a two-out ground ball to the left-side hole by El Cap's GRACE BURKETT, JESSICA BAUER easily sprinted home to snap a 1-1 deadlock. Vates, however, ranged deep to her right to field the ball, throwing to third base in order to nail the hard-charging RACHEL ACHENBACH to register the final out.

EL CAJON (4-23-14) — It’s come down to this:  Grossmont College must beat Palomar in its final two regular season games or its playoff hopes will all but evaporate.

The Griffins (21-12, 13-9) are tied with Mt. San Jacinto for third place but have a superior overall record over the Eagles (18-16). But herein lies the problem –– Grossmont alsotrails second-place Southwestern (24-10, 14-8) by one game.

Even more challenging is the fact that the Griffins need a sweep of first-place Palomar (25-9, 20-2) to give itself a genuine chance at postseason play.

However, Grossmont, which lost to the Comets in Pacific Coast Athletic Conference play, 5-1.
