On Tuesday, May 31st James River’s loss to Cosby wrapped up an otherwise excellent season for the Rapids baseball team. This season they rattled off a 10 game win streak, along with an 8-3 victory over Clover Hill in the first round of playoff action.
With a very good season including lots of talent amongst the team, junior Tanner White reflects positively on this season.
“It was tough in the beginning, then everything started to click and we won 10 straight [games] which really got the ball rolling,” White said.
Now it is time for the team to prepare for the next season, which looks optimistic and promising.
“There is a lot of potential next year, it looks very good with lots of young players,” White said.
For now, they need to keep working hard and practicing whenever possible.
“We need to get swings and reps to be in mid-season form by the beginning of next season,” White said.
Until next season the boys will train hard to improve and work off of this season’s momentum.
