Fresno City College baseball a win away from capturing outright Central Valley Conference title

Just one more win and the Fresno City College baseball team will be outright Central Valley Conference champions.

But standing in the way is the defending CVC champion, College of the Sequoias. The teams will meet at 2 p.m. Tuesday in Visalia.

“We really aren’t going to change our approach,” Rams coach Ron Scott said. “We’ve been playing one game at a time all year. We really haven’t talked about winning the CVC championship. We just want to continue getting better. However, we would like to win so that we can get the No. 2 seed throughout the playoffs.”

As of now, San Joaquin Delta and Fresno City stack up as the top two Northern California seeds, positions that would guarantee home games through regionals, Super Regionals and Sectionals.

Fresno City clinched a tie for the CVC title when COS fell 9-7 to West Hills on Saturday.

The Rams (25-5, 17-1) quickly jumped out in the CVC standings at 7-0 before dropping a game to the Giants (16-14, 11-7) on March 5 — a 9-4 defeat in Visalia.

Scott has led the Rams to 18 conference championships since taking over for Len Bourdet in 1989.

• The Rams will host Taft at 2 p.m. Sunday. Originally the game was scheduled for 1 p.m.



New Fresno City AD not expected until fall

Fresno City is reviewing applicants for the athletic director’s position, but a hire will not be made until the fall when a new president is hired, interim AD Lorraine Smith said.

Fresno City College President Tony Cantu died unexpectedly on April 5.

Last season, Rhonda Williams was interim AD replacing Susan Yates. But Williams wanted to coach softball this season and Yates stepped in to help until Smith was given the interim tag. Yates served as the school’s AD from 2002-2013.
