Brahmas pitch a short start into the new spring season


Following tough losses in the beginning of their preseason, the Diamond Bar High School boys baseball team has turned their record around with several wins.
Starting with after school practices at the beginning of the school year, the team has been training together for over six months. In addition to regular conditioning, they have competed in tournaments and preseason games in order to prepare for league play.
“This season, the baseball team is looking very promising. We have a few sophomores that have a lot of talent and also older guys who are playing the best they ever have,” junior Robert Murphy said. “Our team is like a family, and we are all close with one another.”
Going up against solid competition, the team has worked to refine their technique and teamwork.
“This season we’ve had trouble finding our groove but I’m confident we will have a good turn out this season,” senior Ryan Lewis said. “We are aiming for a playoff run because it’s been a while since this program has been able to do that, and to put it plainly, we have the guys to do it.”
With a tough loss against Claremont, the team has been working to rally and recover, focusing on game techniques and studying their opponents.
“Our performance last game as a team wasn’t one of our best. We struggled a little bit but that is just one game in many we have this season,” junior Jeremy Torres said.
Since then, the team has recovered their record with several wins against teams such as Sultana and Katella.
“Our performance in the [Katella] game was one of the best we’ve had this year,” Murphy said. “With a 3-2 win, it has shown what we are truly capable of and how promising our regular season is looking.”
The Brahmas’ next match is at home against Los Altos on March 31.
