The Warrior Baseball season came to an end on Friday, May 20th losing to the Raiders 4-2 in consolation game. During the conference tournament, the Warriors won the first game against Falls Church and lost their last two games to Marshall and J.E.B. Stuart.

The Wakefield Warriors made history this year. They ended the season with an overall record of 13-7, and 5-7 conference record. It was the first winning season since 1987!

The squad were led all season long from 1st team all-conference junior Ethan Heckler and sophomore Colton Poythress and Honorable Mentions junior Jake Karton and freshman Brody Karton. Every single player on the team had a game where they were the X-factor. “The key to a succesful season is when all the members of the team are ready to step up, and that was the difference from years past.” said Head Coach Mike Ruck.

Aside from the defense, Wakefield succeeded on the mound with their three starting pitchers; junior Jaime Segui, junior Ethan Heckler, and sophomore Colton Poythress. “You certainly are more confident when you know that your defense will hustle after every ball put in play, it was huge all season long.” said Segui who went 3-4 in the regular season.

The Warriors will work hard this offseason to meet the expectations of next year, which are to win the Conference.
