North Sevier baseball team entered the state tournament in the 2A one loss bracket last Thursday and despite a valiant effort lost 7-15 to the Beavers.
“Unfortunately, we fell short against the Beaver Beavers on Thursday at the State Tournament. I thought the boys came out and battled hard, we just couldn’t limit the errors and score enough runs,” said Coach Josh Robinson.
He said looking back on the season the team had a lot of success including sweeping Gunnison, beating #4 Duchesne, and beating #1 and 2A State Champion South Sevier.
“We saw a lot of growth in many of our players throughout the season and I’m sad to be losing this great group of seniors, but I know they will all go on to be successful in whatever they do,” said Robinson. “They’re a great group of young men that put in a lot of time and effort for 4 years with the baseball program, and I know they’ll continue that hard work in their futures. There will be big holes to fill next year. We are losing a core group and while we will have 5 more seniors next year, we will be looking for some Freshman through Juniors to make some big strides next year and help at the varsity level. I’m excited to see who puts in time over the summer and shows up next spring ready to play a big role. I’d like to thank my coaches, their wives, the players, their parents, the school, and all the community for all the love and support shown to the program this season. While we didn’t reach all our goals, we were still very successful and it’s because of the effort from everyone.”
