The Sequoits varsity baseball team took on the Round Lake Panthers at home on April 5. There was a slow start to the game, but the boys picked things up in the fifth inning with two triples by junior shortstop Tyler Skutnik and sophomore second baseman Ethan Andrews.

“We have a strong offensive unit,” junior catcher Logan Delgado said. “We struggled at the plate today and the bats didn’t come alive until late in the game.”

Although the boys had a tough time adjusting to the Panthers pitching, their solid defense kept them in the game. The boys switched their focus to playing flawlessly in the field, while taking the offensive side of the game one batter at a time.

“We didn’t come out as strong as we would like, but we played a complete game and made no mental errors,” Andrews said.

The boys had a combination of pitchers on the mound, including juniors Kyle Bukowy and Caden Davis, and senior Sawyer Phillips. Combined, the pitchers gave up a total of two runs.

“I think the game went well, especially for it still being early on in the season,” Phillips said. “We just have to work on making adjustments to be able to hit [slower] pitching, and we will have much more success offensively.”

The boys came out on top of Round Lake, winning 6-2. The Sequoits are looking to keep the momentum going as they hope to redeem themselves after super sectionals last year and advance to the state finals.
