Five games into the season, the Benilde St.-Margarets 7th grade baseball team is looking promising. The team has 17 players, which is a lot, considering everyone bats. The team’s experience ranges from first time players to players who split their time with travel teams.

The team started the season with a win after some solid pitching performances from William Valley and Nick Renk. In their next game, the team played solid defense behind pitchers Aaron Latterell, Stevie Birch, and Dominic Vogel. However, the team needed all the runs they could get, and going into the bottom of the 6th the score was tied. Cole Hendrickson led off but struck out. However, the catcher dropped the ball and Cole had a chance to get to first. The catcher had huge trouble finding the ball, allowing Cole to get to second. The next batter, Harry Madden, walked. That left runners on first and second with no outs. Owen Keegan grounded into a fielder’s choice for the first out. Then came the top of the order. Charlie Pihart ended up striking out but during the at bat, a wild pitch advanced runners to second and third. William Valley then stepped up to the plate and ripped a single into left field, winning the game.

The Red Knights then lost to St. Michael of Prior Lake and beat Blessed Trinity. In their most recent game, they lost to St. Michael of Prior Lake for the second time. However, things are looking up for the team. There are noticeable improvements in many of the players and everyone is enjoying themselves. The team will close out the season against Minnehaha Red at Fernhill Park next week.
