Baseball has begun its season with a strong 9-1 record after losing to Valencia High School in the first round of the CIF Playoffs last season.
The team won the Easton Tournament to start the year, defeating the Notre Dame Knights in the final. Outfielder Tyler Ganus ’20 said close bonds between members of the team have aided their victories.
“Our team chemistry has been one of the most important keys to our success,” Ganus said. “This team truly feels like a family. I am really grateful to be a part of it; I look forward to every moment I get to spend with them.”
In addition to a cohesive group of players, pitcher Sam Hilboki ’19 said that the team’s hard work and dedication
“Our team’s work ethic is the best I’ve ever been a part of,”
The squad took its only loss to the Birmingham Patriots 11-4 Feb. 26. Prior to the game, the Wolverines beat the Patriots twice. Pitcher Jack Hassett ’20 said that weak mindsets during the game hurt them.
“We just need to keep trusting each other, and things will continue to come together,” Hassett said. “I think during the loss we lost sight of that, but from here on out, it will be in the front of our minds.”
