The Conejo Oaks handed the San Luis Obispo Blues their first loss of the season Friday night, winning a summer collegiate baseball game 7-3 at SLO Stadium at Sinsheimer Park.
Former Mission Prep star Alex Detz went 2 for 3 with two RBI for the Blues (4-1, 1-1 CCL).
Zac Elgie, a 12th-round draft pick by the Oakland A’s coming out of high school in 2008, went 2 for 4 in his Blues debut.
Cal Poly signee Nick Grim started, scattering six hits, striking out four batters and walking two in four innings. Grim, who transferred from Monterey Peninsula College, was taken in this week’s draft in the 14th round by the Florida Marlins.
Nipomo athletes make college choices
Several Nipomo High athletes have finalized their plans to continue their careers in college, Titans football and track and field coach Russ Edwards said Friday.
As expected, Heather Hawes, a discus thrower, signed with UC Santa Barbara on Friday. Her commitment to the Gauchos, who offered her a partial scholarship, was originally reported in The Tribune on Thursday.
A track and field teammate of Hawes, high jumper Amber Britt, will join Long Beach State as a recruited walk-on. Her personal best in the event is 5 feet, 4 1⁄2 inches. She was also the Los Padres League champion in the girls 400 meters this year with a time of 1 minute, 0.82 seconds.
Additionally, Jerardo Torres, a 6-foot-2, 245-pound offensive lineman, will play football at Menlo College.
Torres was an all-LPL first-team honoree as a senior and was a steady leader for a young offense otherwise decimated by injuries.
