By From page B1 | May 12, 2014

FAIRFIELD — The boys tennis teams from Armijo and Vanden high schools continue their journey through the playoffs, while the postseasons in track, baseball and softball get underway.

Here’s how the last full week of the 2013-14 school year shapes up:


In quarterfinal action in the Sac-Joaquin Section boys tennis playoffs, Armijo is at Turlock in Division I, while Vanden heads to Bella Vista of Fair Oaks.


The Rodriguez softball team returns to the playoffs after a one-year absence when the Mustangs play at Enochs of Modesto in an SJS Division I outbracket game.

The postseason begins in track and field with the Monticello Empire League trials at Armijo.


The day’s only action has the Solano County Athletic Conference track and field trials on the Casper Oval at Corbus Field in Vallejo.


In the SJS Division II baseball playoffs, Vanden takes on Kennedy of Sacramento at American River College, needing a victory to get into the best-of-three semifinals.

The SJS girls swimming trials are at Tokay High of Lodi.

Armijo plays host to the MEL track and field finals. The top four finishers in each event move on to next week’s Division I meet at Elk Grove High.


The SJS badminton tournament is at Bear Creek High of Stockton with Rodriguez, unbeaten during the regular season, a solid contender to unseat six-time champion Stagg of Stockton.

Vanden opens the SJS Division II softball playoffs against Metro League champion McClatchy of Sacramento at the Sacramento Softball Complex.

It’s the boys turn to hold their trials in the SJS swimming meet at Tokay.

The SCAC holds its track and field finals at Vallejo with the top four finishers in each event advancing to the SJS Division II-III meet at Bella Vista.


The SJS badminton tournament at Bear Creek concludes.

Tokay hosts the finals of the SJS swimming championships.
