Coach Rich Bailey
Congratulations to the Varsity Baseball team on a strong finish to a 22-12
season that saw a grand slam by Shane Easter, home runs by Tim Thomas and Brad
Clements, a 10 win pitching season that ties a school record by Logan Tiller,
who also earned his 51st stolen base which sets a new school record and puts him
on the MHSBCA state record list. Thank you all for a great season. 2016 will
go down as one of the best.
