The Olympians finished the season in a three-way tie for first with a record of 15-10 in conference play. Mesa tied with Southwestern and Palomar for the championship, and became the second seed due to the tiebreaking rules the conference has set. This will be Mesa's second consecutive trip to the playoffs. The Olympians have been seeded #12, and will travel to #5 Glendale Saturday and Sunday for a best-of-three series.
The following is from Glendale to make your trip to the game easier...
Stengel Field is directly across the street from Glendale College, 1500 N. Verdugo Rd, and the best access for your fans is to enter Verdugo Park on Canada Blvd. and take the road past the large parking area until you see the small lot adjacent to the field for drop off or parking. The field can easily be reached from either the 2 Freeway, exit Mountain Street, or the 134 Freeway, exit Glendale Ave.
