Soaring to first place, baseball wins its 3rd straight

Redhawk baseball steps up to the plate this week with the first event of their 2021-2022 season, tryouts. This will take place through December 3 and will determine placement on three teams, Freshman, Junior Varsity, and Varsity, for roughly 60 athletes.

First place in District 9-5A is where the Redhawks baseball team sits after games Friday and Saturday. On Friday, the team continued its win streak with a 3-2 win over Heritage High School.

“The win helps us get momentum for the rest of the season and stuff to build on,” senior Cade Vestal said.

Following their win Friday the team took on Frisco High School on Saturday. Knocking out 14 hits, the Redhawks pulled away for a 13-3 win over the Raccoons.

Taking the field again on Tuesday, the team will be playing its third game in five days, but Vestal isn’t worried about getting burned out.

“I prevent getting burnt out by winning, winning makes it worth it,” Vestal said. “I like our team and I like baseball, it’s not like this is a chore to me.”
