In what could only be described as Godwin’s best defensive effort of the season, the dreaded “runners left on base” reared its ugly head and cost Godwin Heights multiple opportunities to steal momentum on the road.
Junior Kyler Fritz had two hits. Senior Austen Veloz also had two hits and scored the Wolverines lone run on a Fielder’s Choice by Cristian Valentin. Juniors Nick Alberda and Carlos Hernandez also added hits.
End of season wrap up: Of the 9 starters in today’s game, the Wolverines return 7 of them to line-up in 2019; 6 of whom in what will be their Senior Campaign. Both starting pitcher Steven Reich and reliever Nick Alberda will return to the bump next spring for Coach Simmons and their battery mates Junior Mason Diaz (Reich) and Sophomore Andrew Underhill (Alberda) also return.
Coach Aaron Simmons and Asst. Blaine Wierzbicki would also like to thank Senior Captain Nick Canales and Senior Austen Veloz for returning to the Wolverines line-up for their final go around in maize and blue. Their leadership and camaraderie will be missed, but their legacy will be long remembered by the first year Head Coach and his Assistant.
