The Varsity Baseball team ended their season yesterday in the CISAA Final Four Championship. The Blues hosted St. Andrew’s College in the semifinal and came away with a solid 9-3 victory, advancing the team to the championship against St. Michael’s College School. In the semifinal against SAC, the Varsity team jumped out quickly and never looked back. The team was bolstered by a terrific pitching performance by FY veteran Nick Papoutsidis as well as having 12 hits.
In the championship game against St. Mike’s, the Blues were down quickly 2-0 after the first inning but cut the lead in half at 2-1 in the second inning. The game stayed that way until the bottom of the 5th when St. Mike’s pushed across another 3 runs to make it 4-1. It was another gutsy performance by Papoutsidis on the mound in the final. Although the Blues had their chances to score throughout the game, it was not to be for the young squad. Final score was St. Mike’s 6 UCC 1.
Overall a great season for the Varsity Baseball team with an overall record of 10-3. It is a young squad with 13 returning players next year. Thanks to graduating IB2’s : Colby Muise, Miles Hoaken and three year veteran Jeremy Marco for showing the younger guys the ropes this season.
