The Varsity squad took the fight to Chino Hills in a CIF Playoffs Round 1 matchup, but weren't able to to overcome a 4 run third inning where Chino Hills took the lead and kept it. As playoffs always are, the incredible skill and drive of the players was evident, through to the end, with the Vaqueros mounting multiple rallies and having bases-loaded opportunities... but as with any game, those opportunities don't always work out and Chino Hills came out on top, 6-2.

Thank you for a wonderful ride, Vaqueros.
The Vaqueros secured a spot in the 2021 CIF playoffs, and their first round matchup is against Chino Hills High School, on Thursday, June 3. The game will be played at Chino Hills High and the Vaqueros will be the visiting squad. First pitch is set for 3:30 pm, and the game will be streamed live on the Vaquero YouTube channel, for those unable to make it out to Chino Hills.
Three runs in the bottom half of the second inning gave the Varsity squad a lead over Beckman early, but two runs in the top of the 7th tied the game up, and Beckman took the lead, and the win, in extra innings. It was an emotional game for the Senior class, as the matchup marked their final regular season home game as a Vaquero, and the emotion showed in how fired up the teams were for the contest. J.C. Allen and Patrick Hackworth both had 2 hits for the Vaqueros on the day.
