Dons trounce Poway

Baseball:
Cathedral Catholic opened the season in grand fashion as the Dons defeated their perennial nemesis to win one of the county’s most prestigious tournaments.

The Dons went 6-0 in the season-opening Hilltop Lolita’s tournament at Hilltop High of Chula Vista, highlighted by a 14-6 trouncing of defending Div. III state champion Poway in the March 21 title game at Hilltop High.

Tommy Cheek led the Dons, batting .444 (8 for 18) in the tournament with a homer and 11 RBI.

Parker Hipp led the Dons in the Poway game, going 2 for 4 with a triple and three RBI.
“The main reason for playing in the Hilltop tournament is that it attracts the best programs in county, and whether we win or not it helps prepare us for (Western) league and the (San Diego Section) playoffs,” Dons coach Gary Remiker said.

But winning the tournament was especially sweet for the Dons, who were making their third consecutive appearance in the tournament finals. Poway beat the Dons in last season’s title game.

“We definitely wanted another opportunity to win the tournament and we definitely wanted another opportunity to beat Poway,” Remiker said.
