The SHS baseball team saw its season come to a close in a 5 to nothing loss to SH-G in the opening game of the regional. It was a fun season that ended on a tough note, but one that had many team and individual highlights. Team highlights included a City Co-Championship followed by a 6 game winning streak over the last 2 weeks after losing 8 straight. The team finished with a final 18 and 15 record good for 5th in the CS8. Individual honors went to 3 unanimous All-Conference selections in Will Reiser,  Jacks Hyde, and Adam Passmore. Rico Johnson and Ben Hartl were also both named as special mention CS-8 players. Many thanks to all of the 7th hour teachers for putting up with all of the early dismissals. 

Would you please now rise for the Pledge of Allegiance!  

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, Indivisible with liberty and justice for all.
