As the school year comes to a close, the baseball team looks back at a great season, with four games left. 

Over the past few months, the junior varsity baseball team has seen success with a 6-8 record and a 5-15 record for the varsity team. This record is the best the team has seen in the past three years. 

But better scores aren’t the only change the team has seen. Despite pandemic obstacles, the team has grown closer and formed a closer connection. 

“I feel that this season has brought about so much more tight knit bonding between the players. We just went a whole year without being around anyone, so seeing the same people every day has bonded us into a family. There have been times where we have stood up for each other and that is because we really care about each other,” said JV Coach Corry Nelson.

To top off the great season off Sebastian Elsner ’23 threw a one hit shutout against Sacred Heart Cathedral.  His coaches say they are confident that he will throw a no hitter later on in his baseball career. 

“It felt good to throw a one hitter against Sacred Heart, because I have a lot of friends on that team.” said pitcher Sebastian Elsner ’23

Looking to the summer, Coaches Ramsey, Harlan, Vern and Ramirez will hold a baseball summer activity program to keep the team in shape and train new members.
