James Logan High graduate Mark Turnquist delivered a quality start and the offense pounded out 10 hits, as the Chabot baseball team moved past the .500 mark in conference play with an 8-2 win over host De Anza on March 23.

Russell Stevenson (2 for 4) gave the Gladiators a jolt with a solo home run in the sixth to tie the game 4-4. Chabot upped the lead to 6-4 in the seventh, courtesy of an RBI single by Manny Garcia and RBI fielder's choice by Coffey, but West Valley scored the game's final five runs.
Coffey is third in the conference in RBI with 30 and Stevenson and Gerald Nervis are tied for second in home runs with four each. Chabot outfielder Jake Simons is tied for first in the conference in stolen bases with 12, which is tied for 16th in the state.
