Our pitchers competed hard, we played solid defense all night, and we had the tying run at plate in the last inning. Despite the loss, the game itself was good for us, as it kept us competing at a high level, which is what we need as we head into District play on Monday.
“Tonight was also Senior Night at the park, as our 4 seniors (Clayton Sinden, Jacob Cross, Anthony McCance, and Shannon Kampeter) played their final home game of their careers. I am really proud of this group and am thankful for their hard work and dedication over the past 4 years.
