Two stars on El Cerrito High’s baseball team have signed letters of intent to attend and play for Grambling State University, according to the West Contra Costa Unified School District (WCCUSD).
In front of family, friends, coaches and school staff on Wednesday, Nov. 14, outfielder DeAngelo Fleetwood and pitcher Jamison Patanapanich officially committed to the university in Grambling, Louisiana.
According to WCCUSD, “the senior duo helped the Gauchos to a 20-7 record last year, including a semifinals appearance in the North Coast Section Division II playoffs.”
The 11th-seeded Gauchos would come up shy of winning the championship in a 5-4 loss to second-seed Maria Carrillo.
The Gauchos’ baseball season starts Wednesday, Feb. 13 against host St. Patrick-St. Vincent.
