The baseball team started their season earlier this week. The team has many strengths that will help them along this season. Senior Tommy Schroeder says that they will have a solid season. 

“We have a very strong work ethic in practice and everybody always tries their best to help the team,” Schroeder said. 

To prepare for this season, the baseball team has been hosting open gyms on Sundays and started regular practice on March 15. 

“We have open gyms on Sundays. It allows us to get hitting time in, fielding and pitching,” senior Hunter Boegh said. 

In order for this season to go well for the team, Schroeder says that they need to work on fundamentals. 

We need to be fundamentally better all around if we want to win more games this year,” Schroeder said. 

After COVID-19 took a season, this year is especially important for the team. 

I missed a year because of COVID and I want to just play my heart out. I also hope to be acknowledged as first team all conference,” Boegh said. 

The teams’ first season game is Thursday, March 31 against Laconia. The support from students means a lot for the team. 

“Pack the cars and come to the games. We would really like to have a good student section and support,” junior Brooks Schultz said.
