EATON PARK – Saturday, June 3rd, the Laker varsity baseball team won their district, beating New Buffalo in the semifinals and then River Valley in the championship. The Lakers came out ready to play and mercied both teams in under 6 innings.

Between the excellent pitching, defense, and hitting, the Lakers couldn’t be stopped. Kyle Juza, junior, pitched the first game and Matt Defay, freshman, pitched the second game, both shutting their opponents out.

In the first game against New Buffalo, the Lakers put up 4 runs in the first inning and then shut the Bison out, while steadily scoring more and more. The game ended in the 5th inning, with a score of 11-0.

The championship game went very similarly. The Lakers scored 7 runs in the first inning and then shut out the Mustangs with great defense and pitching. Defay pitched a superb game, throwing a no hitter and allowing only 2 of River Valley’s players to even reach first base.

The game ended early when the mercy rule came into play, ending 10-0 in the 5th inning. The team is now 26-5, heading into the regional semifinals, against Hackett Catholic High School. The game will take place in Decatur, on Saturday, June 10, followed by the regional finals.

Head Coach, Dale Beeney was very excited about the results of Districts and had high hopes for Regionals.

“Regionals will come down to playing baseball like we did this weekend. Timely hitting and defense, and making plays will decide our success.”
