NESCAC has canceled all spring sports.  I suspect that we are not far behind.

The Claremont Colleges (ie Pomona-Pitzer and CMS) have cancelled in person classes for the foreseeable future, telling students to stay home after spring break.

Have to assume we'll get word of SCIAC suspending spring sports indefinitely in the imminent future.

Yep, no chance the SCIAC continues playing this year. I guess Cal Lu is crowned National Champs again!

Yes, it would seem #1 at time of cancellation is Champion.
Thatís what they do with Conference champions, but not sure 🤔 if they do that with National??  Or this year had no champion?

I know itís early, but thatís a lot of West representation at the top!!
3 out of top 4.

If the season ended this way would they send 2 of the teams to other regions?
Or just the 2nd place SCIAC team (which wouldnít be a guaranteed selection)

Again... itís early, but itís fun to speculate!!


Cal Lu Knock off No. 1 Chapman to Take Series Opener

Congratulations Chapman!!!

Best wishes as you represent SCIAC and West Region!!!

Good weekend in the SCIAC for some teams, bad weekend for some, and really bad for others.

Cal Lu is the latest team to fall victim to Caltech and they did it after putting up 21 runs in the first game.  Caltech didn't squeak this game out, they flat out dominated in every phase of the game.  Each SCIAC win for the Beavers over the past few years have been very close games but today was a butt-whooping.  Cal Lu did not play well this week and they have to either get it going or their season is going to go down the toilet in a hurry.  Tip of the cap to the Beavers.

The big series (in my mind) was Chapman/Oxy and it was a great weekend for the Panthers.  Oxy had a 4-1 lead in the 7th on Friday and booted the game away late.  Going back to Eagle Rock today was not kind as Chapman knocked the Oxy pitching all over the place.  Oxy is on a 5 game slide and have given up 46 runs over those 5 games after putting up very strong numbers in the mound up to this point.

Redlands gets right back in the mix by sweeping a struggling Pomona squad.  A lot of offense in the first two games, and a close game to finish the series.  The walk-off winner in game 3 scored on a wild pitch.  Pomona is on a bad path right now and get a struggling Oxy team next weekend.  Must-win series for both.

Whittier scored late in all three games against CMS, but dropped a pair in the series.  Whittier couldn't find the same magic they had up North last weekend, but they still have some time to make up some ground.  Whittier squares off with Chapman next weekend, a series that is always close.

La Verne won all three of their non-conference games and plays a big series with Cal Lu next week.

Chapman and Cal Lu sit atop the standings at this point with 12 games to go for both.  Cal Lu does hold the tie-breaker but there are so many games left for all teams.  We will see what happens.

Good recap... thanks JP

I imagine we can scratch Cal Lu off the Pretender List.

CLU record against non-SCIAC West Region teams is 5-1:

Univ Texas-Dallas         8-5
Whitman                     4-1
George Fox                 5-20
Whitworth                   6-2
Texas Lutheran            4-2
Puget Sound               16-11
This could definitely come into play during selection season.

Nice to see CLU defeat Texas Lutheran today, improving to 5-1 against non-SCIAC Western Regional Teams.
Coach Slimak has done a good job of scheduling and winning West Regional games, which can only help during tournament selection time.

Taken from the teams website:
As a whole, Cal Lutheran out-hit Texas Lutheran nine to five, led by Wright's second consecutive 3-for-4 game. The infielder currently leads the team, hitting .464 (13-for-28) with a .514 on-base percentage.

The win over 2018's Division III World Series competitors moves the Kingsmen to 7-2 overall. The team now plays Drew (NJ) and Greensboro 2x.

UT-Tyler 10, Oswego State (New York) 5.

This is the very first game to be won by an ASC team in the D-3 National Championship.

(In 2002, Concordia went 0-2).
