JV BASEBALL REPORT - The Falcon JV baseball team played a tough Cohen Eagle team yesterday afternoon. The first 3 innings showcased a lot of great defensive plays and great pitching. Riley King led the way with 7 putouts, Keegan Omlor had 3 assists and 2 putouts and great outfield play by Kris Foskett, Tanner Seura, Drew Pierson, Aidan Gibbons, Drew Cote and Nolan Domagala limited the Eagle hitters to singles by getting the ball in quickly. Tanner was able to get a runner out at second base by getting the ball over to Dawson Peterson to end a Cohen rally. Spencer Merritt, Kris, Michael Harris, and Everett Huckins all had hits for EEMS. The score wasn't in the Falcons' favor, but the boys in maroon and gray kept playing hard until the final out. Stay positive boys. It's your turn soon!


Reminder for JV baseball players: Practice today is from 3-4.
