North Baseball’s Great Year Comes To An End


Caden Brannan, Reporter

North wrapped up their great regular season with wins against East and Harlem. This put North at 12-5-1 in conference play. They gained the momentum they needed as they travelled to Dekalb for the first round of the Regionals.

North jumped on Dekalb quickly as they scored two runs in the first inning. And North piled on three more runs by the end of the second inning, making the score 5-0. They were in control throughout the game, but Dekalb seemed to be building a comeback in the sixth inning. North walked in a run, which made the score 5-1, but they were able to turn a double play on the next batter to get out of the inning. North ended up winning with a final score of 5-1, while also saving their ace, Brock Ashens(‘19), for the championship game.

North would face off against Huntley, who had just nine losses on the year. Behind their ace, and Sean Hesano(‘19) who went 3-3 and had a home run, North was able to keep the game close as they were tied 2-2 going into the sixth inning. But Huntley broke the game open after they scored two runs on a single in the bottom of the sixth inning. North was so close to pulling off the upset and winning the Regional Championship, but fell just short and lost 4-2.

North finished with twenty wins on the season setting the school record.
