The playoffs continue for high school baseball as the Bosqueville Bulldogs get ready for Riesel in the third round.

The Bulldogs are coming off of beating Rio Vista in the second round. It was a sweep as they won game one 8-3 and then game two 6-4 to be crowned Area champions.

So far in this postseason, Bosqueville has yet to be on the losing side of the scoreboard.With the regional quarterfinals happening on Wednesday, the Bulldogs know that Riesel is a tough obstacle, but they have a young team that is laser focused.

"This team has grown, you know, we were faced with some adversity early on, but we designed the schedule to be really tough and I was going through the schedule earlier today and I think every team we played in non district is still in the playoffs or got beat last week. So our guys are used to playing competitive baseball," Bulldogs Head Coach David Anderson said. "The last few years, we've gone really deep in the playoffs both years and, you know, all that, you know, with all that returning adds up and guys are able to, no situation is too big for them," Anderson said.
