Charger Outstanding Performances
DP qualified five athletes for next week’s CIF finals at Cerritos College.
Freshman Josie Morales cleared 5-4 in the girls high jump and didn’t miss a jump all day. Boys high jumpers Spencer Kemmerer and Chris Jones both cleared 6-2 to advance. On the track, Christina Rice and Hunter Clark qualified for the finals in the 3200. Clark ran 9:25 to win the first heat of the boys 3200. He took over with two laps to go and didn’t look back. Rice took the lead early and won her heat in 10:48. Megan Robinson high jumped a personal best 5-2 and missed advancing to finals by one spot. She will be the first alternate if another jumper cannot compete.
DP had quite a week sweeping all three games with Ventura HS to capture their fifth straight Channel League titled. The scores were 3-1, 7-2 and 7-2.
On Monday, Darby Naughton gave the Chargers a big boost. Jed Donelan, Dustin Demeter and Colton Nisbet had RBI hits for DP. Naughton, who was making his second starter after sitting out a couple of weeks with a sore arm, pitched six solid innings, striking out four and giving up an unearned run to earn the win. Austin Bull pitched a scoreless seventh, striking out one batter, to earn the save.
On Tuesday, Isaac Coffey made his first start at second base and ripped a two-run single over third base. Isaac is the younger brother of former DP star Luke Coffey who now plays at Westmont. Peter Appel was 3 for 3 with a walk and two RBIs and Demeter had a double and scored two runs. Julian Amador pitched three scoreless innings of relief and earned the save.
On Thursday, Colter Nisbet belted a two-run triple and Gio Macias had a two-run single to pace the DP offense. The Chargers scored in each of the first four innings, including three runs in the third.
DP will host a first round playoff game on Thursday against Arcadia HS.
The Charger softball team did what it needed to do, beating Ventura HS twice to tie Buena HS for the Channel League title.
