The season for ARC men’s basketball ended Wednesday night in a 78-67 playoff loss to Foothill College. ARC was down only 1 at the half but Foothill pulled away in the final minutes. It was a great season for the Beavers – congratulations to the athletes and coaches!

 

ARC baseball is red hot, as the Beavers beat Solano 9-7 Tuesday for their fourth straight win – all on a long road trip. ARC is finally home today, with a 2pm first pitch against Diablo Valley College.

 

Softball’s win streak ended at 5 with a 5-0 loss to Butte College Tuesday. However, the Beavers bounced back in the second game of the doubleheader with a thrilling 8-7 win in nine innings.

 

In men’s tennis, the Beavers took a trip to the Bay Area 2/20-2/21 to face two Coast Conference teams, the Cabrillo Seahawks and the De Anza Dons. ARC was able to shut out both opponents, although they were pushed to 3 sets at #2 singles (Jimmy Giovannini) and #3 singles (Dylan King) against De Anza. Other highlights included dominating performances at #1 singles in both matches. Against Cabrillo, Giovannini played a nearly flawless match in a 6-1, 6-0 victory. Against De Anza, Seppi Capaul routed his opponent 6-1, 6-0 in the most convincing victory on the day for the Beavers against the Dons. At the end of the trip the Beavers had pushed their undefeated record to 5-0.

 

The undefeated ARC Beavers men’s tennis team (6-0) will take on the undefeated Bear Cubs (4-0) from Santa Rosa Junior College at 1pm this Friday, Feb. 27 in a matchup that will play a huge part in deciding the champion of the Big 8 North Conference. The Beavers are currently ranked #2 in Northern California and the Bear Cubs stand at #3. Both teams are coming off of convincing victories over conference rival Diablo Valley College. It should be a very competitive and exciting match between two of the best teams in Northern California.

BEAVERS RETURN HOME NOT SO WELCOME

  February 26, 2015

The four game winning streak is over.  The Beavers first home game since a 7-4 victory over Solano College on February 10th ended in a 6-4 loss to Diablo Valley College on Thursday.  The Vikings scored 4 of their 6 runs with 2 outs as Beavers starter Kirby Broadbent (Oakmont) just couldn’t finish a couple of the innings unscathed.  He went a career high 7 2/3 innings, scattering 9 hits and walking 3, one of them intentionally.  Offensively, the previously potent lineup just couldn’t cash in on some opportunities, as the Beavers had 17 baserunners on the day, but only were able to push across 4 runs.  The Beavers left at least two runners on in 5 of the 9 innings.  RF Alex Gaskin (Jesuit) led the way with a pair of hits and LF Jimmy Lunardelli (Oakmont) had an RBI triple, his team leading third triple of the season. 

The Beavers have the weekend off before traveling to Modesto on Tuesday, then back home on Thursday to face cross-town rival Cosumnes River, followed by a Friday trip to Diablo Valley College in Concord to close out the non-conference portion of the schedule.
