Closing out its season with a 5-13 District 9-5A record, the Redhawk baseball team fell to the Heritage Coyotes in a 1-0 loss Friday night.

“As much as I wanted to win, I’m really happy that that we got to be together as a team one last time,” senior Mitchell Miller said. “It was the last time a lot of us were going to play organized baseball ever again, and it was the last time we all got to be on the same field together and in the dugout with our coaches and teammates.”

Hanging up his cleats, Miller reflected after the game on what he’s learned as a four year member of the baseball program.

“Being a Redhawk baseball player has taught me how to push through adversity,” Miller said. “It taught me to be a better leader and teammate, and to leave a legacy that I would be proud of for the underclassmen and players to come.”

With seniors graduating, the team’s underclassmen are already looking forward to the 2019-20 season.

“Although we didn’t get the results we wanted, our younger guys made improvements to their game,” Archer said. “Next year we just need to play our game, our younger guys can definitely pick up the slack and we will be just fine next year.”
