Area Roundup: North County shuts out Santa Maria

Mac Stuart supplied the power, and Cal Poly recruit Austin Dondaville turned in a dominating pitching performance Thursday to lead the North County Indians to an 8-0 summer collegiate baseball win over the Santa Maria Reds in Templeton.

The Indians (24-8) led 1-0 entering the bottom of the sixth inning where they scored twice. They put the game away with two more runs in the seventh and three in the eighth.

Stuart had a double and a home run in the sixth inning and finished with two RBI. Ben Polshuk also had two hits, including a double.

That was more than enough for Dondaville, who struck out six, allowed six hits and one walk in eight innings.

Cal Poly wrestling announces four more signees

The Cal Poly wrestling team’s 2014 recruiting class reached double digits Thursday, when four more wrestlers signed National Letters of Intent to join the Mustangs this upcoming season.

Six had already signed during the early signing period in November, bringing the class total to 10.

The latest group Cal Poly announced includes three student-athletes from California. Yoshito Funakoshi of West Torrance High placed third in the state at 120 pounds this past season.

He’ll be joined at Cal Poly by fellow state placewinner Joe Granger of Rancho Bueno Vista (fourth at 152) as well as Clovis Buchanan’s Jason Delacruz, who placed sixth at senior nationals in the 126-pound weight class.

Michael Johnson, a heavyweight from Bound Brook, N.J., was the fourth to sign during the regular signing period, which ends Aug. 1. Johnson placed fourth at the New Jersey state finals and was a standout fullback and linebacker on the football team.
