Spring break turned out to be very productive for the Mater Dei and Sherman Oaks Notre Dame baseball teams.

Mater Dei entered the week with an 8-6 record. Notre Dame was 9-6-1. Both ended up going 4-0 to win prestigious tournament championships.

Mater Dei pulled off the stunner of Friday night, knocking off No. 1-ranked Corona 5-3 in the championship game of the Southern Division of the Boras Classic. The Monarchs trailed 3-0 in the second inning. Sophomore Jackson Campbell was brought in from the bullpen with the bases loaded. He struck out Corona’s two best hitters, Seth Hernandez and Josh Springer, and proceeded to throw scoreless ball for 5 2/3 innings.

Meanwhile, Mater Dei scored two runs in the fourth on a two-run double from Lawson Olmstead and added three runs in the fifth, with Brody Connors supplying an RBI double. Sophomore Ezekiel Lara had three hits for the Monarchs, who won consecutive 11-inning games to reach the final and inflict a rare defeat on Corona (15-2).

Mater Dei will play Granite Bay, the Northern California champion, in the Boras Classic championship game on April 20 at noon at Santa Clara University.
