Varsity takes a swing at districts

After a 6-1 win over Oakville, FHN’s Varsity baseball team feels ready for Districts. Varsity will be playing in the same district as Pattonville, CBC, DeSmet and Parkway.

“I feel great going to districts this year,” senior Varsity pitcher D.J. Bills said. “This year the team is defensively more sound and not every player cares about his stats.”

On May 9, Varsity played Parkway West and won 14-1. They have confidence that they’ll make it far in Districts.

“I’m confident we’ll get far,” senior Varsity player Bryan Ryberg said. “We have a good lineup, and good baseball IQ.”

The team also played five teams in the state top 10, as well as placing in the third schedule. However, there are a few things they believe they need to work on before Districts. One of those things happens to be team chemistry.

“We gotta bond,” Ryberg said. “We gotta throw out all the negative vibes.”

As of press time, the team’s record is 17-10.

“We’re confident,” Ryberg said. “We know how to win.”
