The Redhawks fell to the Lone Star Rangers 6-2 at home on Friday Night, ending both the season and their playoff hopes. Despite an encouraging two-run start in the first inning, the Redhawks were held scoreless for the remainder of the contest. 

The Redhawks struggled in the final weeks on the season, losing five of their last seven games. Despite the ending, the players are thankful for the season and their time in the program.

“My favorite part of the season was just hanging out with the guys playing a sport I love,” senior Jeremy Hussey said. “Enjoying every last bit of the season was important to me as it is my last.”

The season’s ending is especially meaningful to the seniors, the majority of which have played their last competitive game. Among these seniors is outfielder Caden Wartluft, who hopes the underclassmen will remember to savor their time in the program

“Don’t regret any of the decisions you make,” Wartluft said. “And don’t blink, it will go by super fast.”

As the season comes to an end, the eyes of the program will soon shift towards next season. Sophomore Ian Garza, one of several sophomores on the varsity roster this season, looks forward to the Redhawks’s success in a new district arrangement. 

“It’s gonna be sad going into the future as I will no longer get to play with the seniors that I got close to this year, but I feel good about future seasons as our district is losing Wakeland, Lone Star, Reedy, and Frisco,” Garza said via text. “This should make our district much easier and I feel like we should be able to make the playoffs the next few seasons.”
