After last year’s six-week season, the Lowry baseball team has a lot of work to do. Just last weekend they were in Reno, participating in a preseason tournament.
This year’s varsity team includes a wide variety of players. From freshmen to seniors who have never played before.
Reicyan Grau, a freshman, is excited but also nervous about the big role of being on varsity.
“It feels really good and scary at the same time,” said Grau. “Not only do I have to be more responsible but also because I have to prove myself on the field and in the classroom.”
Anton Mendoza, a sophomore, has had his heart set on varsity since he could remember.
“It’s really cool to be on varsity already, and I’m most excited about improving my hitting,” said Mendoza. “I’m looking forward to building a stronger brotherhood with my teammates.”
New assistant varsity baseball coach Gus Ramasco, is just ready to be someone both players and coaches can rely on.
“I want to implement the new style of baseball that coach Walton wants to have here at Lowry,” said Ramasco.
COVID-19 had a strong effect on the team last year; Coach Ramasco believes that getting more reps and having more time this year will show a significant improvement to the team.
