Sutter stays in MaxPreps top-20 with Colusa showdown looming: Huskies, RedHawks to play nonleague showdown April 29 at Bryant Field

Apr. 11—While it suffered recent adversity last week out of the area, the Sutter Union High baseball team remained tops in the Yuba-Sutter region in the MaxPreps Sac-Joaquin Section full weekly rankings, listed at No. 18 on Thursday.

The Huskies remain No. 1 in the Pioneer Valley League at 5-0 heading into a road battle at SJS No. 33 Wheatland to round out the week's slate. Overall, Sutter is 14-3-1 with nine games left before the postseason begins on May 8 at home sites. Of course for the reigning Northern California regional champions, one of its last remaining noteworthy games could be a nonleague battle against Colusa, champions of the Northern Section in Division IV the last two years. To date, Colusa (14-3) is ranked No. 3 in the NSCIF full poll ahead of upper division powers Chico and Pleasant Valley. The area's two small school powers are set to meet at 6:45 p.m. April 29 at Bryant Field in Marysville in an event set up through the help of the Highlands Community Charter School and Marysville Drakes front office.

Sutter is 9-4-1 against Colusa since 2006 with the last meeting ending in a 4-4 tie in May 2023.
