Last week was one the Wildcat baseball team would like to forget.
The Cats lost a close one to district foe Bishop Kenny and then dropped games against state powers North Florida Christian and Bishop Verot in the UNF Tournament of Champions. They bounced back a little in their final game of the tourney, beating Eagle’s View.
The week started badly with a 2-1 district loss to Kenny as the Crusaders took advantage of some breaks at home on Thursday, March 15.
Chris Waddell threw five innings and Brad Stone came in for the sixth inning.
“We just didn’t execute enough to win the game,” said Coach Fred Matricardi. “We had chances but couldn’t get that big hit.”
The Cats came out on Friday with a hangover from the Kenny game and it showed as they lost to North Florida Christian 8-3. BCHS gave up five runs in the second inning and that proved to be the difference.
“We made a couple of uncharacteristic mistakes and came out a little flat after the Kenny game,” commented Matricardi.
Hunter Hanks led the offense, going 3 for 4.
