The Week Ahead: Fairfield’s Hill to go up against former coach

By
From page B1 | March 24, 2014 |

FAIRFIELD — Spring break is this week in the Fairfield-Suisun School District, but that doesn’t mean many of its teams won’t be playing.

An interesting matchup, at least when it comes to coaches, happens Friday when the Vanden softball team travels to Fairfield.

The Falcons are coached by former Vikings standout Laeha Hill, who faces her former coach, Don Wakefield.

Fairfield’s junior varsity team is coached by Hill’s younger sister, Shasta Hill.

Here’s a look at an abbreviated but still busy week:

Monday

Vanden heads to Fairfield for boys tennis, while its golf team joins Will C. Wood in the Ty Caplin Tournament at Lodi’s Woodbridge Country Club.

Tuesday

Solano Community College’s baseball and softball teams both have home games, the former against Laney of Oakland, the latter against Contra Costa of San Pablo.

Vanden has a crucial baseball showdown at Benicia, while Fairfield looks to get into the win column when it hosts Vallejo.

It’s the same matchups in soccer with Vanden looking to stay in the Solano County Athletic Conference title chase playing at first place Benicia, while Fairfield, in search of its first win, entertains Vallejo.

The lone softball game of the day has Rodriguez, fresh off a 12-1 drubbing of Napa for its first Monticello Empire League win of the season, hosting MEL-leading Vacaville.

Wednesday

Before Wakefield takes on his former player, Vanden entertains Benicia in a showdown for first place in the SCAC, while American Canyon heads to Fairfield.

In nonleague golf, Vanden and Wood tangle at Green Tree.

Thursday

It’s been a tough season thus far for the Rodriguez baseball team, but the 2-7 Mustangs get a treat when they play Turlock at Raley Field, home of the Pacific Coast League’s Sacramento River Cats.

Closer to home, Fairfield makes the trek to Vanden.

Solano’s baseball and softball teams hit the road, the former continuing its series with Laney in Oakland, while the latter goes to Los Medanos of Pittsburg.

In boys tennis, Fairfield is at Vallejo and American Canyon at Vanden.

Girls soccer has Bethel at Vanden and Benicia at Fairfield, while the Vikings’ boys golf team sails to Mare Island to play Benicia.

Friday

The Fairfield and Armijo baseball teams renew their rivalry at the latter’s Dave Marshall Field. The Indians won the first meeting 13-1 on March 5.

In addition to Vanden at Fairfield, softball has Wood at Rodriguez.

Armijo’s track and field teams head to Bella Vista of Fair Oaks for the Bronco Distance meet.

Saturday

Solano’s swim teams host their own Solano Invitational, while the Falcons close their baseball series with Laney at Billy and Louise Yarbrough Field.

Vanden’s baseball team gets its turn at Raley Field when the Vikings take on Center of Antelope.

In track and field, Vanden and Armijo go to Rocklin for the Thunder Invitational, while Rodriguez is at UC Berkeley for the Oakland Invitational Relays.
