Varsity baseball closed off the season with a losing record of 6-14. JV had a losing record of 3-10.
“Overall it was a disappointing season. We struggled [to stay] healthy and had many major injuries that set us back,” varsity coach Steve Teter said.
The team didn’t make it to the championships.
“We had a lot of talent and the ability to make the playoffs, but we didn’t pull it together as a team,” varsity pitcher junior Steven Jernigan said.
The captains were seniors Connor Reeves and Mark Michael, who were both three-year players.
Reeves tore his ACL and was out for the majority of the season. Senior Nicholas Flayhart was set to be the team’s leading pitcher, but he couldn’t play the entire season because of a major arm injury.
According to Teter, “We are going to continue to work. We have a good freshman class coming in and talented kids on JV. As disappointing as it was this year, I think the future is still bright.”
