Baseball ends challenging season; looks forward to next season

Players hangout in the dugout at one of the last games of the year, watching and hoping for a win. The team went 3-21 this year but learned a lot and is hopeful for next year.

The baseball season has drawn to a close, characterized by a season of moderate performance yet brimming with cherished memories and joyful camaraderie. 

“This was without a doubt my most funnest season, and I also improved a lot over these years,” senior Darius Randle said. “Now that it’s ending, it kinda makes me sad. I wish I would’ve cherished it more.” 

This year, the team went 3-21, winning to Hazelwood Central and University City twice. 

The season wasn’t as good as I thought it was going to be, but my freshman year was great. I enjoyed playing with these guys,” freshmen Christian Washington said.

The baseball team’s last winning season was the 2018-2019 season where they went 19-10. While this baseball season may not have met the expectations of the seniors, they hold dear every moment experienced, as it marks their final season in high school.

“The season wasn’t the best, but man the memories we made this season were so funny and fun. I love these guys and am sad to be leaving them this year,” senior J’von Saunders said.

With five seniors graduating, the team aims to leave behind a legacy, motivating the underclassmen to improve.

“I really hope these underclassmen do what we couldn’t in the next few years. They have so much potential to be great. I just hope they realize it,” Randle said.

The underclassmen, in turn, strive to elevate their game and strengthen the team’s depth chart for the upcoming year, perhaps even making it to state like the team did in 2012 where they placed second at state after losing to Rockwood Summit.

“Next year, I look to improve and build a connection with my team. I don’t feel like I did that enough this year. I want us to have better chemistry and play more together and be able to communicate,” Washington said.

Despite their challenging 3-21 record, it’s evident that everyone has found genuine enjoyment in the season and holds deep appreciation for each other’s efforts. Despite the setbacks, they’ve cultivated a sense of camaraderie and mutual respect. Looking ahead, they remain optimistic, eagerly anticipating the opportunities and growth that the next few years may bring.
