Baseball eyes last regular season game

Following a week of constant rain, the Spartan baseball team took to the field again last Friday in hopes to start back on the right track toward the district tournament that is approaching. They squared off against the Indians of Holt who sit with a record of 20-7 so far this season. The Spartans were unable to come out with a victory finding themselves overmatched in a lopsided 15-4 thrashing.

Although the season has just one game left for the team to tweak their weaknesses, senior Cody Woods feels that they still have a very good chance at making a run for the district title.

“One thing about this team, is that we don’t give up,” said Woods. “We refuse to throw in the towel and that is why I think we can surprise some people when it comes to the district tournament. Never count us out.”

This season the Spartans have been led by youngert talent for a better majority of the season. Sophomores Josh Wade, and Jake Henson have carried much of the load through the season, both are batting .458, and Henson has contributed with 32 runs batted in.

The Spartans final regular season contest will be tonight at Fort Zumwalt East.
