JV baseball started with a strong season right out of the gate. In the first two games, the team trailed by only one point, taking a 5-4 loss to South Tahoe, and another loss of 18-17 against Spring Creek. In their final game, also against Spring Creek, the team bounced back for a 13-8 win.
Freshman Erick Bergenheier attributes the team’s tight season to the players’ ambition and focused attitude towards the game.
“We're always pedal to the metal and we always want to win,” said Bergenheier.
As a close follower of Lowry’s baseball program, Bergenheier is confident in what the future may hold for this particular team.
“We have struggled in the past but I feel like this season we have one of the best teams in the program's history,” said Bergenheier.
As with all teams, JV baseball wasn’t without their struggles. Among them, Bergenheir said, we’re staying positive and fielding.
As many players on JV and freshman teams come to find out, the step between previous sports organizations and high school ball can be a large one. Along with that can come a significant change in attitude.
“The coaches at Lowry don't like players who are lazy,” said Bergenheier. “The coaches I've played for in the past were a lot more relaxed.”
