Baseball thrashes Kewpies on senior night


Luke Chval

After the first inning, the game was already out of hand; the Hickman baseball players struggled to keep up with the strong hitting of the Bruins, but to no success. RBHS led 4-0 after the first inning, and after all six innings held a 10-4 victory over the crosstown rival.
Junior Carson England was the Bruin’s starting pitcher, earning the win after shutting down the Kewpies in the top of the first inning while the Bruins started a lead that would never end.
“It was big to get the win against Hickman,” England said. “It’s always fun to beat them because you’ve known those guys for a long time and they’ve known you.”
The Bruins moved on to a record of 24-2, showing their appetite to repeat their state championship. The team is confident that it can move forward through the postseason as long as they are poised and energetic.
“We are pretty confident,” England said. “We know that we can play and beat anybody in the state as long as we focus on what we need to do.”
