With the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning, Ezra Allen’s short fly ball floated just out of the Flintridge third baseman’s reach — empty mitts hit the dirt and the third base runner dashed home. The scoreboard flashed 6-5; the Sharks made history.

For the first time in the school’s history, the MHS baseball team defeated their second-round CIF opponents, Flintridge Prep, on May 27 and advanced to the third round, coming back from a fifth-inning 5-0 deficit and marking the furthest the program had ever gone in the playoffs.
