Swing for success: South’s varsity baseball team continues their winning streak

After winning two previous games against Eisenhower, South’s varsity boys baseball racked up another win on May 7, winning two games in their three-game series. It was a close game, back and forth throughout its entirety, but South came out on top. The final score was 6-5, keeping the winning streak for the boys.

Jack Wiegand ’24 is one of the four senior captains and had an outstanding game with multiple hits scoring runs for the team.

“We’ve played this team in the past, and we’re playing them again on Thursday, for a three-game series, we’ve won both games so far so that’s pretty good, and we plan on keeping the winning streak,” Wiegand said.

Caleb Eckert ’24 started the game off strong by scoring a run, hit by Griffin Szatkiewiski ’25 giving South an advantage in the first inning. Eisenhower hit back with the same energy, scoring a run as well.

The team switchedh pitchers at the top of the third inning, putting in captain Jack Ryan ’24. Ryan is a very important asset for the team, he is a very skilled pitcher and even pitched a no-hitter against L’Anse Creuse North earlier in the season.

Following his entry to the game, Ryan struck out quite a few batters, holding South in the competition. After a quick rain delay, Ryan pitched the start of the 6th inning, striking the batter out and keeping the team in the game.

“[The game] went very well, it’s a lot of ups and downs, but we were able to come back in the end,” Wiegand said.

After the exciting win, the team hopes to keep the winning streak. Because of the rescheduled game against Grosse Pointe North at Comerica Field, South still has anticipation for that on May 30, where they hope to pull out a win.

“[I’m looking forward to] definitely getting some more dubs, because we started off kind of slow, but now we’re starting to get hot,” Wiegand said.

Hoping to see the team get far this season, Wiegand has high hopes to make it to the playoffs continue on, as well as racking up the wins.

“[I’m looking forward] to playoffs, beating North, and just continuing,” Wiegand said. “The team has come far from the beginning of the season, and I’m excited to see what happens next.”
