After the game vs. Pepperdine at Schott Stadium on April 21 Santa Clara players and coaches shaved their heads in support of St. Baldrick's "BaseBald" program. The volunteer-driven charity funds research to find cures for childhood cancers and to let survivors long and healthy lives. St. Baldrick's funds more childhood cancer research than any organization besides the U.S. government.
Even though the team raised $9,000 for the cause,, the event was about more than just money. The Broncos wanted to bring awareness to the public about children with cancer and show their support for the kids that are fighting every day.
"For our guys to be this excited to shave their heads for a good cause says everything you need to know about them as a group," said O'Brien before the event. "We're honored to be associated with St. Baldrick's for such a worthy event and to do what we can for children fighting this disease."

Some say perfection is an unattainable ideal. Not Friday at Eastlake High School as senior Peter Hendron hurled a perfect game for a 1-0 win against the rival Wolves. The win runs the Redmond Mustang win streak to 10.
Hendron was dominant from the outset, throwing three pitches for strikes. His fastball had the needed giddyup and the curveball kept the opposing Wolves off balance all game.
