Tritons Baseball Seniors Represent Sea View League in Ryan Lemmon Classic
Five San Clemente baseball players ended their high school careers on June 7 by playing in the Ryan Lemmon Senior Showcase game in Irvine.
Seniors Brock Eissman, Jake Terkoski, Dan Caresio, Cody Maples and Shane Elias-Calles were a part of the Sea View League team that squared off against the Pacific Coast League at Windrow Park.
Tritons head coach Dave Gellatly was a part of the coaching staff in the exhibition game.
Mariano, Valko Ousted from Round of 16
The successful post season run put together by the San Clemente tennis duo of Ryan Mariano and Nic Valko came to an end on June 7, when the two were defeated by University’s Arash Hafezi and Eric Tseng in the CIF-SS round of 16 at Seal Beach Tennis Center.
Mariano and Valko were not a regular doubles team for the Tritons for a majority of the season but were paired together late and made their march to the round of 16 by winning their opening two matches back on May 22. The doubles squad earned a first round bye at the next stage, which placed them into the round of 16 match with Hafezi and Tseng.
Maples Named to All-CIF Baseball Team
Senior Cody Maples was a versatile and effective two-way player for the San Clemente baseball team in 2013 and on June 11 he was awarded All-CIF Division II honors. On the mound Maples was the owner of a 6-3 overall record and a sparkling 0.45 ERA. He was also a regular presence in the middle of the San Clemente lineup, where he batted .333 to go along with 12 RBIs and three home runs.
