TMC Insider: Baseball plays for a conference title

The Master’s College baseball team looks to a strong regular season finish as it faces its final series before entering the postseason, while the women’s track team posted quality marks over the weekend at the Soka Peace Invitational in Aliso Viejo.

Despite learning earlier last week that The Master’s College will be a host site for the 2014 NAIA Baseball National Championship Opening Round Tournament (May 12-15), there is still plenty on the line for the Mustangs as they enter the final week of the regular season.

In fact, there’s plenty on the line for five Golden State Athletic Conference teams as only four teams are permitted to advance to the conference tournament (May 1-3).

Currently, the fifth-ranked San Diego Christian Hawks (35-11, 22-11 GSAC) sit first in the conference standings, while the 12th-ranked Mustangs (35-13, 21-12) are just one game behind in second place. One game behind TMC is the tied-for-third-place-race between Westmont (33-14, 20-13) and the 16th-ranked Concordia Eagles (33-15, 20-13).

Bringing up the rear is No. 24 Vanguard (28-18, 19-14), which sits just one game behind Westmont and Concordia.

Next weekend, the Mustangs will travel to Santa Barbara and look to avenge its lackluster performance against the Warriors at Reese Field back in late February.  

A sweep over the Warriors, coupled with Biola winning its series against San Diego Christian would give the Mustangs the GSAC title for the second consecutive year.  

Elsewhere, the third and fourth place in the GSAC will hinge heavily on the outcome of the Concordia/Vanguard series.

However, if next weekend doesn’t go the way the Mustangs hope, a GSAC Tournament appearance is still in the picture as TMC can place no worse than fourth in the final standings.

Women’s Track
On Saturday, Rachael Ingoldsby, Hannah Kellerman, Hollie Larsen, and Morgan Pedrick teamed up to race in the 4x800 event at the Soka Peace Invitational in Aliso Viejo.  

After placing first in the event, the quartet qualified on the “A” standard. In addition, the squad’s performance enables them to compete in the event at the NAIA Track and Field National Championship next month in Alabama.  
TMC’s 4x800 team currently ranks eighth in the country on the NAIA’s Track and Field performance list.

Next weekend (April 25-26), both the men’s and women’s track teams will compete at the GSAC Championship Track Meet at Westmont College in Santa Barbara.
