Spring Sports Update
By Samuel Munsey
The baseball team has been on a roll as of late, winning six straight games as of April 14th. The team has five more games over the next two weeks before the playoffs
, where they will be the number one seed in the district as they look to make a state championship run. Logan Allen has been leading the effort in the pitching and hitting areas, but many others such as Nathan Peden, Cameron Robinson and Jesus Ruiz have made major contributions as of late.
Also playing well at the moment is the Titan softball team, who are currently 17-6 at the time of writing and face Pine Ridge and Seabreeze in their final two games. Sophomore Kendall Walsh and seniors Taylor Langworthy and Jenna Weldon lead the team at the plate, all hitting at least .340. On the mound, Walsh, Weldon and junior Marissa Adame all have ERAs below 2.00.
Also, there were many boys Titan lifters that made it to the state championship meet in DeLand. Brandon Elias, Joey Rago, and Anthony Pearsall were there, fighting for a shot at the state championship. Unfortunately, all three fell short of the championship but they all put in great efforts and had great finishes in their divisions.
“Seeing this many people on our team make it this far is truly an exciting time for the team and an inspiration for everyone else,” said senior Tyler Thompson.
Finally, the tennis team has had their season come to a close recently after the district tournament. The boys team fought hard but fell short in their doubles match against DeLand, while the girls had one winning duo on the first day that had the chance to move on to the next round but failed to pass further than that.
“It was a great season for us and it was a lot of fun to try tennis for the first time,” said senior Ryan Kenis.
Overall, the Titans are rolling towards the end of the school year with many great seasons, accomplishments, and possible championships. Between all these teams, the future is bright and the present is even brighter.
