State Record Updates

Howell hits another homer; a clarification is needed for record set by Vanden's Selden; and Bullard boys volleyball wins another league title.

Baseball: Trevor Howell of Pacific Grove clubbed his 15th homer of the season last Friday in a 5-4 win by the Breakers over Soledad. He also now has 43 for his career, which just three off the state record of 46 set last year by Ismael Salas from Marian Catholic of San Diego.

Softball: Anjelica Selden from Vanden of Travis AFB did set a state record last week, but the category should have been for consecutive scoreless innings pitched during a season. According to Cal-Hi Sports record book compiler Nelson Tennis, there is an overall streak that started in one season and extended into the next that is longer than Selden's. "Somehow, in doing the last book, the word ‘season' in parentheses was deleted from that category," Tennis said. He said that in the 1980 and 1981 seasons Tracy Compton from Righetti of Santa Maria pitched 23 straight shutouts and had a streak of at least 161 consecutive scoreless innings. More research will continue toward providing more details on Compton's streak.

Add Selden: The Vanden sophomore fired her third perfect game of the season in a double no-hitter last week as the Vikings won 1-0 over Lincoln. It was Seldon's 19th consecutive shutout and she now has a streak of 136 2/3 scoreless innings. Jamie Jaramillo of Lincoln pitched a no-hitter for her team, but Selden was even better.

Boys Volleyball: Bullard of Fresno has the currently known state record for most consecutive league titles and last week the Knights upped that total to 19 by clinching another North Yosemite League crown. They've also won their last 74 straight league matches. Since 1984, Bullard's league record in the sport is 238-11 and its overall record is 368-47. Congratulations to head coach Roy Verduzco for another terrific season.
