The Warriors had a strong 4th inning, during which they were able to rack up six hits and held the momentum all game long.

They also defeated the York Suburban Trojans with a score of 8 to 4 and dominated this game as well, but this was the last win the baseball team was able to pick up in the past couple weeks.

They just could not maintain their winning ways and have had an unfortunate five-game losing streak.

They lost their most game to the South Western Mustangs with a score of 3 to 2.

The Warriors kept the game close, but South Western played better down the stretch, grabbing two hits in the 6th and 7th innings.

The two teams had six hits apiece through seven innings, but the Mustangs were able to capitalize with their hits in comparison to the Warriors.

Junior Austin Ruth thought there were positives in their play despite the loss.

“The game was a close one, but did not end up going our way,” said Ruth.

The junior varsity Warrior team was able to rack up the win, and mercy ruled the Mustangs with a score of 14-4.

The JV team has been on a tear with a 7-2 record and are keeping a strong mentality with the rest of the season in front of them.

Freshman Brian Penn has four runs batted in the previous two games and is on a hot streak at the plate.

“I feel good at the plate, and I am looking forward to keeping the season going,” said Penn.

Freshman Logan Palmer is happy with the recent run of success the JV team has had recently.

“I’m pretty happy with what we have done so far, but we just gotta remain consistent,” said Palmer.

The JV team lost their game to the Central York Panthers on April 16 at home by a score of 3-15.

Varsity Warriors Baseball hoped to get back on track despite their struggles, and they did with a score of 7 to 2 against Central.

The Warriors have 11 more games left and still have time to turn the season around and change their losing ways.

However, the Warriors do not have an easy backend of their schedule by any stretch of the imagination.

They have a tough game against the Red Land Patriots who have two players, cousins Luke and Cole Wagner, who are committed to the University of Georgia.
