Renegades Are On a Roll
By Helen Tracey-Noren
Since their loss against Gavilan College at the end of Feb., the Ohlone College Renegades have been on a 10-game winning streak.
This hot streak has allowed Ohlone to boast overall results of 15-7 and a conference standing of 9-1, making the Renegades the leading team for the Coast Pacific section of the Northern California Conference. Ohlone earned the title of 2011 State Champion Runner-Up last year and State Champions in 2010. If the Renegades keep on this fortunate streak of wins, they may see another title in the near future.
In the Renegades' recent game against Hartnell, freshman catcher Ryan Beal has shown to be a true asset for the team. Beal made several good stops behind the plate during the Hartnell game and is hitting a .368 in his 19 at bats this season. Several MLB teams have also been keeping an eye on Beal with intentions to scout him. These teams include the Red Sox, Angels, and the Astros. Beal has also drawn the attention of such schools as Michigan State, Indiana State, Florida Atlantic University, and others.
The future looks bright for the Renegades. Their next games will be against Skyline on March 29, and a make-up game at Monterey on March 30.
