The Padres won the hit battle 7-6, but couldn't push enough runs across to get the win. The Bells scored first and extended their lead to 6-0 by the top of the 6th, but the Padres would not go quietly. They scored 3 runs of their own, but it wouldn't be enough as the Bells held on for the 5-3 win.

An outstanding effort by Matt Blais carried the Serra Padres to a 10-0 win over Sacred Heart Cathedral on Friday at Westborough. Matt's 12 strikeouts were enough as he only gave up just three hits over six shutout innings. The Padres had 12 hits, including five extra base hits, scoring five runs in the seventh on an RBI double by Neil Sterling, a two-run triple by James Outman, an RBI single by Christopher Papapietro, and an RBI single by Sean Watkins. Sean racked up three RBIs on two hits. The Padres stayed on top until the final out after taking the lead in the third, scoring two runs on a two-run home run by Sean. Look for the Padres in action again as they take on the Bellarmine Bells of San Jose at Frisella Stadium on Tuesday April 1st. First pitch is scheduled for 4:00 p.m.

James Outman hit for the cycle to carry the Serra varsity baseball team to a 17-2 win over Wilson High School visiting from Portland, Oregon at Frisella Stadium on Thursday. James accomplished one of the rarest feats in baseball during the game when he hit for the cycle, going 4-5 in the game. He tripled in the first inning, doubled in the third inning, singled in the fourth inning, and homered in the sixth inning. Thirteen runs in the opening three innings allowed Padres to easily put away Wilson. A two-run home run by Angelo Bortolin, a two-run triple by James, an RBI single by Daniel Molinari, a two-run single by Nolan Dempsey, and an RBI single by Angelo during the first inning fueled the Serra offense early. Overall, the Padres hit three home runs in the win when Angelo homered in the first and third innings and James homered in the sixth inning. Vinnie Venturi got the win for Serra. He tossed 3 1/3 innings of shutout ball. He struck out four, walked one and surrendered no hits.

The Padre Track and Field teams fell to the Lancers of St. Francis last week in two closely contested dual meets.  Despite the losses, there were some definite bright spots for the team. Leading the varsity squad, senior thrower Billy Sapp had a massive personal best in the shot put with his throw of 48-3.25. Sophomores Talon Bennett, VJ Obiajulu and Jordan Kenison continued on their early season hot streak. Bennett upped his new school record to become the first lower division pole vaulter in Serra history to clear 13 feet. Obiajulu won both the triple jump (42-5) and the long jump (20-3.25). Kenison finished 2nd in the two jumping events (41-9.25; 18-6.5) behind Obiajulu.  Other event winners included Kyle Orloff (100m - 11.54), Armon Plummer (1100HH - 17.48) and Stefan Seul (Discus - 136-1).
Lepi Lataimua was a double individual event winner and anchored the 400m relay team to a come-from-behind victory for the Frosh Soph team. Lataimua won both the 400m (54.57) and the 200m (24.62), and he crossed the line for the relay at 46.84. Noriega Moffett won the 100m (12.46), Jorge Villanueva had the top shot put mark (42-1) and Jack Allara jumped 9-6 to win the pole vault.
