The Varsity Baseball Team continues to roll on in spite of the recent rainy weather. Last Thursday (5/12), the Lions defeated the #4 seed Batavia Bulldogs by the score of 7 to 5 in the Cincinnati sectional semi-final. Steven Binder pitched the complete game and gave up only one earned run. The offense was led by Austin Warden, Levis Simpson, and Austin Skaggs, who all collected 2 hits.
The rain prevented another game until Wednesday (5/18) vs. the always tough and talented Division I Lakota West Firebirds. The Lions were not intimidated as they outplayed the Firebirds and came home with their 9th win in a row by a score of 5-2! 5 different players shared the pitching duties, with Zak Ritter picking up the win. Ritter also collected two key hits and 2 RBI's, while Austin Skaggs delivered three hits and 3 RBI's of his own. Tre Jetter and Cole Bird had a combined 3 hits and 4 of the 5 runs scored for the Lions.
The Lions will now turn their attention to the #1 Seed McNicholas for the sectional championship. The game is at Milford High on Friday, 5/20 at 4:00.
