The Eagles upset the Admirals to move on to the All A State Tournament next week in Owensboro, KY. Evan Byers, 11, started the game at pitcher. However, he came out with an injury after only giving up 1 run in the first inning. Andrew Branstetter, 12, replaced him on the mound. The Eagles relied on heavy hitting in the game, with 19 hits. Second Baseman Cameron Smith, 11,  said, “I’m glad we were able to get so many players on base, because it helped us gain momentum and energy.” The Eagles also finished the game with yet another fielding performance; they had no errors. Junior Outfielder Will Fugmann commented on his team’s success by saying, “We are the greatest fielding team in the nation!”

The team is on a hot streak now, recently defeating number one in the state Tates Creek. The baseball team was not ranked inside of the top twenty-five for high school baseball programs in Kentucky. Now, they will breach the top twenty. The team is surpassing all expectations and the students of LCA are rallying behind the team. Sophomore basketball player Drew Johnson has attended every single baseball game this year. He is excited every time he gets the chance to talk about the baseball team. “I am the biggest LCA Baseball fan in the history of life.” Drew is only one of many fans of the team this year. This year’s team is exciting all and classmates are proud to call them Eagles. They wish good luck to the baseball team next week in Owensboro at the All A State Championship, and hope the team will bring home the trophy.
