Last week the boys fall baseball season came to an end. After some hard fought games the season ending loss came at the hands of Windsor Stew/Stras during the NTC tournament. Coach Beccue said his team is young but he feels that they will have a solid group of kids returning for the spring season. As for this fall he saw his upperclassmen show leadership and drive to really compete in tournaments and the regular season by getting off on the right foot. He also stated that it will be difficult to replace seniors that are dedicated to the game and lead the team by example. They finished off the fall season with a record of 7-11, which coach Beccue believes will be improved upon in the spring season.
They really need their pitchers to step up this spring season and be ready to compete and throw strikes so that their defense can continue making plays. They have good fielding and some good offensive players that have stepped up to the plate to help lead them to some close matches. They had a good EIC tournament but fell short in the championship game to the Mulberry Grove Aces, losing 4-1 in a game that was a fight to the final inning. Last week brought a great opportunity to prove themselves in the NTC, but they fell short and was unable to prolong the season and give their two seniors one last chance to bring home an NTC title. But the spring season will bring another chance. Good luck next year in the spring season!
