Deer Valley pitcher Peters inks with UCSD

Deer Valley High graduate Jacob Peters, an all-Bay Valley Athletic League pitcher last season, has signed with UC San Diego. Peters had a solid senior campaign with a 5-2 record and five saves. He was excited to set the school career earned run average record with an ERA of 1.25. The old mark was 1.29.

“I was pretty excited,” he said of the record. “There have been a lot of good pitchers at Deer Valley, and so it was an honor to do that.”
