Geoff White’s ‘Yotes won three of four games at Elks Stadium to push their Canadian College Baseball Conference record to 6-6.

“We are happy to win the weekend, but we still have lots of areas to improve on and continue to build on consistency on all aspects,” said White, the OC coach. “It is definitely a step in the right direction.

“We have seen all four teams now so we have an idea of a game plan going into weekends and seeing particular match ups.”
