The St Stephens JV White got through their first 2 games. Monday was a miserable cold and wet afternoon. Like Charlie Brown has been praying for rain in the strib all week, so should have we. We got through it though, and the boys were back for more on a much nicer Wednesday afternoon. The sun was shining and Evan was making his first start at pitcher - ever. He struck out 5 in his 2 innings of work and we were in the game. We had a rough time in the 3rd, giving up 9 runs, but other than that, we played with St Vincents. Final score was 15-2. A marked improvement over our 25-0 loss in the first game against Meadow Creek.
We're the only school in the league fielding 2 JV teams, and someone decided to load up JV Blue with all the 7th graders. So we're playing 5th & 6th grade boys against teams starting primarily 7th graders. But I'm proud of the boys for hanging in there and giving their all.
