The Villanova Preparatory School baseball team is off to a 6-2 start this spring and they are generating plenty of excitement across the Ojai Valley. VPS split a pair of games with Carpinteria last week after sweeping the Einstein Academy the week before.
Last Wednesday, the Wildcats beat the Warriors at home, 5-3. Senior Easton Bartholio pitched a solid game to get the win for VPS. The senior pitched four innings, struck out two and walked two batters.
