Yuba City clinches series over River Valley: YC Honkers eliminated from SJS postseason

May 3—As forecasted, the Yuba City High baseball team took care of its own business Thursday, clinching its final Capital Valley Conference series with a 12-4 win over rival River Valley to move to 15-12 overall and 9-8 in league. The two met in the finale late Friday in an outcome that was irrelevant because both Inderkum and Roseville won on the final day of the regular season to move each school to 11-7 in conference.

Yuba City's game against RV finished past the Appeal deadline.

In the Pioneer Valley League, Sutter Union High (20-6-1) clinched the league earlier this week and will likely earn a top-4 seed this weekend when all brackets are released officially by the section.

D-I-IV opens on Tuesday, D-V-VII on Wednesday at home sites.

The Pirates ended their season with a 12-10 win over Gridley.

Northern Section
