The last two prep baseball seasons, the semifinals in the City Section have featured the same four West Valley League teams: Birmingham, El Camino Real, Chatsworth and Cleveland.
All four have lots of important returnees, making 2019 a possible repeat of 2018 and 2017. But Palisades from the Western League is armed with something no other school in the City Section has: two Division I-bound pitchers.
Senior Wyatt Loncar is headed to Ohio State. Senior Will Coquillard is headed to Georgia Tech. There’s also a promising junior left-hander in Miles Kirschner.
