Brendan Banach ‘16: Fighting for a cure, the varsity baseball team played the Stoney Creek Cougars in the first annual cancer game. The players and coaches raised a total of six thousand dollars through donations and working a hitting camp for kids. A very generous donor matched what was raised bringing the grand total to twelve thousand dollars raised for the New Day Foundation for Families.
“It really surprised me how two baseball teams could raise six thousand dollars. It really makes me happy seeing that forty something kids could raise thousands of dollars for a good cause” Logan Ganfield ‘16 said on raising money.
Romeo struggled game one offensively Mitch Milam ‘17, Anthony Quas ‘16 and David Andrews ‘16 each had two hits apiece. The bulldogs fell to the cougars 6-3.
“We loaded the bases twice and failed to bring all of the runners in. We need to capitalize on these opportunities in the future to have more success.” Anthony Quas ‘17 said on game one.
Game two the bulldogs offensively came alive behind a three double performance from Anthony Quas ‘16. Gavin Ganfield ‘17, Zach Palmer ‘17 and Jake Petri ‘17 all contributed hits of their own. Pitcher Brendan Banach ‘16 went the complete game allowing four hits in the 9-0 routing of the Cougars.
“It was such a fun game, every single player was involved and helped our team play a really clean good game.” Steven Morris ‘16 said following the game.
Romeo hopes to carry over their second game success into their last MAC white series this week against Cousino.
