Warrior baseball finishes season 10-17

Fallbrook High School’s baseball team finished the 2010 season with a 10-17 overall record, including a 5-10 Avocado League mark which placed the Warriors fourth in the league standings.

“We weren’t as successful as we wanted to be,” said Fallbrook coach Jesse Schuveiller. “I’m proud of the way the boys hung in there and stayed together.”

Fallbrook swept San Pasqual to win its first three league games and give the Warriors an 8-7 record at that point. “We started off the season pretty strongly,” Schuveiller said.

The Warriors won two of three games in the Lions Tournament, defeating Mission Bay and Taft (Woodland Hills) but losing to Ramona by a 5-3 score to give the Bulldogs the head-to-head advantage which sent Ramona to the subsequent rounds. Fallbrook defeated Valley Center in the North County Tournament and won two games in the Falcon-Pirate Classic.

“We had some definite highlights and we beat some really good teams,” Schuveiller said.

The Warriors’ sweep of San Pasqual included a 9-6 win in the April 14 league opener which saw the Warriors come from behind with four runs in the sixth inning. Fallbrook’s other two wins over the Golden Eagles were by one-run margins, including an eight-inning 2-1 win April 16. “We hadn’t swept a team in a long time, so it was fun to do that,” Schuveiller said.

La Costa Canyon and Torrey Pines dominated Avocado League play. “They were pretty good teams,” Schuveiller said.

Mission Hills finished third in the Avocado League standings after taking two of three games from Fallbrook at the end of the season. “They deserve it. They got us,” Schuveiller said.

The Warriors had a 6-22 record in 2009. “They definitely learned a lot about adversity and how to stay with it,” Schuveiller said.

Fallbrook had 12-17 records in 2007, which was Matt Parker’s final season as Fallbrook’s coach, and in 2008, which was Schuveiller’s first season.

The Warriors utilized a 13-man varsity roster which included six seniors. “We’re going to need a lot of JV guys to fill the void,” Schuveiller said. “We’re hoping the JV guys can step up.”
