Bronco Baseball defeats Blue Springs South
Story by Lily Temple – Assistant Editor
Last week on Monday, March 28, the LSN boys baseball team had their first win of the season. This win was special because of the tough opponent they faced, Blue Springs South High School. Blue Springs South has many players who are already committed to play baseball in college but the boys did not let that stop them.
“It felt good to get the first win out of the way. We came together as a team and battled till the end. We played good defense and beat an excellent opponent,” Blake Davis, senior, said.
The star player of the game was Blake Davis. He pitched all seven innings and was also the player who hit the double that sent two runs home for the win in the bottom of the seventh but, if you ask him, it was a team effort.
“It felt good to pitch the whole game. My defense played stellar against a very good Blue Spring South team. We stayed in it and believed in ourselves,” Davis said.
It was an unexpected win for the Broncos after being on a six-game losing streak. It was fun for the team and fun for the fans to all experience a walk-off win.
“The team was electric, which made for a great Culver’s night,” Davis said.
