The Spartan baseball team took on Francis Howell in a two-game series April 7-8. Central swept Howell, with the first game ending 9-8 and the second 7-6. Winning both games put Central at 7-3 record for their season.

The rivalry between Howell Central and Francis Howell even more intense for the athletes, having the pressure to beat Howell. It’s all part of the game and makes the game even more fun.

“All the guys know each other, we all compete against each other, play on summer teams together, it’s fun to play against them and finally be able to beat them this year, twice,” senior Garrett Allsman said.
