The North Haven baseball team posted victories versus East Haven, Branford, and Shelton last week to raise its record to 13-3 on the season. With these wins, Bob DeMayo now stands just three victories away from career win No. 900 as the Indians’ head coach. DeMayo is in his 60th season as North Haven’s skipper, a time during which he has guided the Indians to five state championships, the most recent which came in 2015.

As of press time, North Haven had four games remaining in the regular season. The Indians played at North Branford on May 14 and then had a home game against Xavier on May 16 (both after press time). North Haven is hosting Law at 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 17 and will close the regular season by facing North Branford at home on Sunday, May 20 at 7 p.m. The Indians will be competing in the postseason after that.

In last week’s action, North Haven defeated SCC Quinnipiac Division opponent East Haven 4-3, earned a 3-1 win over Branford in a divisional duel, and then routed Shelton 8-1 for its sixth straight win. The Indians improved to 4-1 in the Quinnipiac by beating East Haven and Branford.
