Baseball season has gotten off to a strong start in La Jolla, with both La Jolla High School and La Jolla Country Day seeing wins in the Lions Tournament on April 4.

The Vikings, whose record sits at 9-5 as they prepare to open up Western League play this week, are averaging just under seven runs a game. Offense has been led by seniors Bobby Schuman (.429 average), Kevin Usselman (.419), and Austin Burke (.385). Burke has also been a contributor on the mound, with a 2-1 record and a team-best 0.85 ERA. Senior Eric Pitrofsky has also been an outstanding pitcher, posting a 4-1 record with a 1.12 era.

LJHS opened up league play this week with games against Coronado and Point Loma.
