Whetstone Vs. Briggs

By Maia Johnson

“We were uncertain before the game started about what to expect,” senior Sam Price says of last night’s baseball game against Briggs High School. “So we were slightly nervous because we heard they were good. But obviously that wasn’t the case,” he laughs, because Whetstone ended up defeating Briggs 16 to 1, winning themselves the City Championship.

The trophy was handed to seniors Luke Green-Lauber, Nick Hall, Dexter Kowalski, Zach Barnum and Sam Price, but not before a memorable game was played out. They got off to an early three-run lead in the first inning, and by the second inning, they were leading by 8.

“Zach continued his great pitching, holding them to one unearned run,” Sam says of the single point earned by Briggs. “But after that great pitching and solid defense, Briggs held no more runs.” Already at a major advantage, Whetstone finished out the game when “the show began as we scored 8 more runs in the third inning, leaving Briggs down 16-1 and completely demoralized.”

The team spent plenty of time celebrating, accepting the award, their tee-shirts, and taking multiple pictures out on the field. After a while they made their way over to Buffalo Wild Wings, where the seniors spent their final moments as a part of the team. “It’s been a great season, and an even greater four years, but it’s time for me to move on. I wish the best of luck to next year’s team, and I hope they get to beat Briggs for the 6th year in a row!” Price added.
