The baseball team needed a win against the Lone Star Rangers Tuesday night to claim part of the District 9-5A championship. However, the Redhawks fell short 6-3 in the final game of the regular season, knocking the team into second place. 

“I mean we knew going in that we were playing for district championships, obviously if we would’ve won we would’ve been co-district champs with Wakeland,” senior Will Glatch said. “But we have to get over that since we didn’t get our way and now we gotta move towards playoffs and we’re looking forward to that we’re looking forward to playing for a lot longer and I think we’re gonna be pretty good. We just gotta keep playing how we’ve been playing, and good things will happen.”

Earning the district’s #2 seed for the playoffs that begin May 7, the Redhawks were not expected to be in the hunt for a district championship according to head coach Scott McGarrh.

“Where we were picked at the beginning of the year, we knew we were better than what most people were saying, so-called experts, so it gives a little fuel,” he said. “Dropping it last night, I mean obviously we did not win the district title, it upset the guys, but they’re ready to get into playoffs and roll.”

Heading into the first round of playoffs, the team won’t know their opponent until Friday, with the Redhawks playing the loser of the Lovejoy vs Rockhill game. To junior Cade McGarrh, it doesn’t matter who they play. 

“This team’s been just unlike no other,” Cade said. “I mean we want to win, we’re competitive, we go out there to play the best of our abilities. So that’s the overall goal here, just to play as long as we can and make a playoff run.”
