Mountain Pointe has made it to the final four of the baseball season for the fourth time since 2008.

Standing in Mountain Pointe’s way in the next round of consolation on Thursday at Tempe Diablo Stadium is defending state champion Chaparral, which knocked the Pride out in the second round last season.

Whether or not the Pride advances to the consolation finals, where either No. 1 Desert Mountain or No. 2 Tucson will be waiting, it is pretty clear Mountain Pointe has become one of the state’s premier programs since Buck took over.

Mountain Pointe made the semifinals in 2008 as a 14th seed, finished as runner-up in 2010 as the sixth seed before winning it all in 2011 as the second seed.

This year’s team is the 14th seed and many believe this team arrived a year early with the junior and sophomore class being pretty special.

It will be hard to lose seniors like acrobatic third baseman Michael Weaver, staff ace Zach Cordova and the bloodlines of Brantley Bell.

With that said having the seven other underclassmen in the daily lineup, along with No. 2 starter Jorge Carrazco, grow and mature over the next season bodes well for this program to make another run.

The only question that remains is will it be as defending state champion?
