The Washington Huskies have shown powerful hitting all year and brought it to a first round matchup in North Coast Section (NCS) play, meeting and beating a the Dublin Gaels 6-2 on May 21. After spotting the Gaels to a run in the top of the first inning, the Husky batters came out swinging with a two-run answer in the bottom of the inning. After three innings, the Husky lead was 5-1 and they never looked back.
The Gaels had little answer for the Husky batting barrage of eight well-timed hits. It was a good day for Husky Nick Quejado, batting four for four at the plate with a triple, two doubles and a bunt single. He scored three times, stole a base and drove in one run. His efforts were helped by Latrell Harris, two for three at the plate and a Run Batted In as well.
Second round postseason play saw the Husky bats active but unable to score runs as they were eliminated by the Compolindo Cougars (Moraga) 2-0 on May 24.
