Sports Highlights: May 20-27

CIF Baseball and Softball Playoffs Continue

In the second round of the CIF Southern Section/Ford playoffs, Santa Barbara High will host a baseball game and Dos Pueblos a softball game on Tuesday, May 21. Dos Pueblos is also alive in the baseball playoffs and will travel to Cypress.

Santa Barbara will play in the State Regional boys volleyball tournament this week, visiting Eagle Rock in a quarterfinal match Tuesday night. Esperanza is the top-seeded team after defeating the Dons for the Southern Section championship, 3-1 (21-25, 25-20, 25-23, 25-18). The Dons, seeded third, could get another shot at Esperanza if they make it to the regional final.

UCSB wrapped up its home baseball schedule with its fifth consecutive series win over Pacific last weekend. The Gauchos’ slim hopes for a postseason invitation hinge on their Tuesday evening game at eighth-ranked UCLA and their final Big West Conference series at UC Davis.
