The Redhawk baseball team has their District 9-5A home opener Tuesday at 7:00 p.m as they take on the Centennial Titans.

“After losing the 2020 season due to the pandemic, we are excited to take the field at The Nest and compete for a playoff spot,” head coach Scott McGarrh said via email. Opening up against Centennial adds even more excitement to the game, as we have had many competitive games through the years.”

 It’s the same feeling for senior Owen Archer.

“I’m very excited,” he said. “ We’ve been playing very well and it’s been nice to play with the team especially since last year.” 

The team spent part of its spring break playing in a tournament, which will help the Redhawks throughout the season according to McGarrh.

“The tournament over spring break helped our team because we got to see all the highs and lows that a long season brings all within one weekend,” McGarrh said “We opened up the tournament with a big win, but then lost the next game one out away from victory on a walk off home run. There will always be highs and lows. It is important for our team to acknowledge this and respond from triumphant wins and heartbreaking losses.”

With Tuesday’s home district home opener going a long way towards setting the tone for the rest of the season, Archer is hoping to have the longest season possible. 

“We definitely want to have a long playoff run and just see how far we can go,” he said.  “We can really play with anyone when we’re on.”
