Lambert is in the quarterfinals for the first time in the program’s brief history. The Longhorns are coming off their toughest challenge of the season, a three-game series against Mill Creek in the second round in which Lambert staved off elimination after losing its first game all season and overcoming a 3-0 deficit in Game 3. Lambert’s bats have been hot, particularly Seth Beer, Jake Chickowski and JD Dutka, while the Longhorns have been getting solid pitching from Dylan Biumi, Beer, Dutka and reliever Turner Scruggs.
