New Coaches, Similar Results on the Diamond for

The Blackstone Valley Tech baseball and softball teams are under new leadership this season, but both Beavers' squads find themselves back in familiar territory with the district tournament on the horizon and battling for the top spot in the Colonial Athletic League (CAL).
Under first year head coach John Burke, the BVT baseball team has been rolling for more than a month. After a loss to Sutton in mid-April, the Beavers began a 12-game winning streak heading into this week. During the run, they've scored double-digit runs on four occasions and run through CAL play with a perfect 8-0 mark. The Beavers have scored nearly nine runs per game and are allowing only three, both totals represent the best marks in the league.
Burke has said the team's goal is to advance to the district final and have a chance to raise a banner. He has also had success despite a lack of returning pitching depth, the Valley Tech staff has had to rely exclusively on younger arms this season. BVT posted a 10-3 mark in league play last year and earned 14 victories in a campaign that came to an end in the Division 3 quarterfinal round of the district tournament. This year's Beavers have a chance to eclipse that win total by early next week.
The 2016 BVT softball team went 17-5 and made it all the way to the district semifinals before bowing out. This year's Beavers are coached by first-year head man Peter Cardoza and won their first six games. Valley Tech is out to an 8-1 start in CAL play, in a virtual tie for the top spot in the league, and boasts a 9-2 record overall. A spot in the district tournament is all but assured.
Through the successful season, Cardoza has touted his depth, noting every hitter in the lineup was hitting over .300 during the early winning streak. The Beavers have only been slowed by rainy spring weather, which forced them to practice indoors rather than play games outside for large swaths of the early part of the season.
The young squad has only two seniors, but is in position to win the league and make another run at being one of the final four teams in the district.
Even with a pair of first-year head coaches, the Valley Tech baseball and softball teams appear poised to play deep into the spring once again.
