With the beginning of spring sports brings some of the most highly anticipated games of the season, baseball. The County High School Baseball team consists of a Freshman team, a JV team, and a Varsity team. With the teams have a total of four coaches Matt Eades, head coach, Anthony Sanchez, assistant coach), Dylan Gavin, assistant coach), and Ryan Miller, assistant coach. Their season is starting out really well. They are 12-1 at the time of date, April 18, 2023. This earns them a well earned standing as number one in the season's rankings.
Ever since PCHS has been opened, sports have flourished throughout the halls. Every year new members join the team. This allows them to amass a giant team of players and fans.
Senior player, Braxton Vail, was asked a series of questions related to the team and the season, here are his responses.
How do you think the season is going?
“The season is going well so far with the team being 12-1. We have a great lineup with great hitters all around. We are starting out very very strong as a team and we hope to finish strong!”
What are your expectations for the team?
“My personal expectations for the team is be #1 in the state, and then make the CHSSA Championship game. Hopefully bringing back a championship trophy to county.”
What are your practices like?
“Our practices are fun but business. Everyone knows when it is time to be serious and when to have fun. Our coaches make our team the way they are fun but hold us accountable for ourselves.”
Who would you say is your star player?
“If I had to choose a star player I would have to give the offense side to Johnathan Gonzales. Defensively, I would say Braxton Vail. Gonzales' bat is hot this year. Alongside that is Vails’s arm, which just got done throwing a no hitter against south on Saturday.”
Baseball is said to be America’s pastime, but soon they might have to rename. PCHS’ past time - just has a better ring to it.
