Patriot games: Viewpoint reaches CIF finals

Every player had to run the mile that first day. “It was tough,” sophomore third baseman Morgan Melito said. “Every year we run a mile.” The work is just beginning with that mile. Then there’s hitting, fielding, pitching. Practice, practice, practice. The work never […]
