After a long winter, the varsity baseball team is excited to start its season. Coach Ron Espinola held training in early January, meeting in the New Gym due to the poor baseball weather. The current baseball teams are working to renovate both fields for the upcoming season.
Last year the Bucks made it to the first round of playoffs but were defeated by Fallon after losing two of three games.
Coach Espinola currently has no opinion on Fallon, “I don’t care about them. They don’t matter right now.”
Instead, Espinola is focused on their upcoming weekend in Reno, which will be filled with five games against five different teams. The Buckaroos will go against Reed, Enochs, Wooster, Reno, and McQueen this weekend. The latter two have been regarded as two of the best teams in Nevada.
First-year varsity player, Tytin Johnson has a lot of faith in this year’s varsity team.
“We show a lot of promise. We work well together,” said Johnson.
The varsity baseball team for 2013 includes Michal Arenas, Donovan Brumm, Tyler Brumm, Dusty Bryan, Calvin Conners, Christian Dawson, Jalen Formby, Troy Hardy, Tytin Johnson, Tanner Lecumberry, Aaron Nelson, Brandon Okuma, Daniel Pollock, Jesse Studebaker, and Matt Wells. The managers for their season are Alec Mayo and Eric Brooks.
