On March 2nd, the Varsity Baseball team played a hard fought game against Cypress Creek, winning 5-4. 

   After previously losing to Cypress Creek 11-1, the baseball players felt intense pressure coming into the game. Senior Alexis Vargas pitched 3 innings resulting with no runs from their opponents. “It felt great to support my team and to help us get out of the tough innings. With a team that previously beat us before it was an amazing feeling,” said Vargas. 

  It became a close game near the end, having it tied 4-4 until junior Andrew Solovjov had a hit on base that left the team open to score another run. “It was a difficult situation that we were in. We had to put the ball in play for the Cypress Creek defense to do something, but in the end they messed up,” said Solovjov.  

 Solovjov’s winning hit resulted in senior Yan Perez being able to score the winning point for the team. “After Andrew hit the last run, I was able to score the game winning run which was really exciting,” said Perez.

  Excited from their new win, the boys are continuing to work to improve their skills. “We are working on everything right now, like everyday defense and normal hitting drills. This will help increase our bat speed and increase our timing. We are working on the fundamentals because as a team they are so young,” said Coach Sean Comfort.
