“These were two nice wins even in the cold weather,” said coach Drew Weber. “The spring weather hasn’t cooperated at all and it’s cost us a lot of practice time that we normally have, but it hasn’t affected the boys very much,” said Weber.
“I’m very please with our pitching thus far and we’re doing a good job of getting on base offensively. We really need to continue having a balanced attack at the plate and throwing strikes on the mound,” said the coach.
Weather continues to play havoc with the baseball games. Snow and cold weather have caused the postponement of the April 6 game with Chamberlain. This game will be played in Winner on April 12 with the junior varsity playing at 5:30 p.m. followed by the varsity.
On April 14, Sioux Falls Washington will play a junior varsity game in Winner at 2 p.m.
