IHS JV Baseball: mid-season update

By GABI ISENBERG

It’s spring, and that means it’s baseball season. Since the end of March, the IHS boys’ junior varsity team has been taking wins left and right.

This season, the IHS JV baseball team has won nine games and lost one. They were undefeated until recently, losing a close game against Punxsutawney. Having an undefeated season up until then motivated the team as a whole.

Freshman Hunter Kunkle stated, “We knew that we could win a game and that we worked so well as a team. It also brought us together so that we could play better. When one person had a bad day, we knew that we could count on someone else to make it right.”

This season, the baseball teams have proven that this sport is more than just a sport – it’s a family. In March, Todd McGee, a close family member of the program, passed away. In his honor, IHS Baseball dedicated their season to him. The team wears the initials “TM” on their hats and bracelets to show their support. Junior varsity player Michael Zimmerman commented on how this event brought the team together. “We are a family with the varsity team and we all know the McGee family so it’s hard for all of us. We all play like it’s our last game and we work our hardest to win.”

JV practice consists of several things. Working on technique and working as a team are main focuses. Scrimmages and drills are a regular part of practice. Players commented that JV practices are just fun to be a part of and they enjoy spending time with their teammates, playing the sport they love.

This baseball season is almost at an end, but it’s been an extremely successful one. This team had proved what it means to work together and play their hardest. The JV team has three home games left this season. The team’s last game of the season is away at Hollidaysburg on May 10.
