Falcon baseball knotted in league standings



The Skyridge baseball team has earned a 5-4 record after the first three series in tough Region 3. They are 11-7 overall and tied in the league standings for second place with Lehi (11-8), Lone Peak (11-8) and Pleasant Grove (10-9) coming into this week.

The Falcons took one game each from the Knights and top-ranked American Fork, sweeping Westlake between those twoseries. They have a critical set with the Pioneers this week and then finish out the regular season next week with Pleasant Grove.
