Varsity baseball loses their fourth consecutive match against Hayfield

Second base Senior Krish Malik and junior shortstop Marcus Nance prepare for the upcoming game against Hayfield after losing their last three games. “You just have to look on the bright side and you know, just have fun on the field,” Malik said.

The Jefferson Varsity baseball team lost their fourth consecutive game against Hayfield on Thursday, April 25. The score was 0-12. 

“I wasn’t here last year, but we did worse compared to last year against Hayfield. Last year’s score was 14-3, but we couldn’t get even a single run this year,” freshman pitcher Andrew Haydon said. 

The team hopes to learn from their performance and improve their skills for future games. 

“My pitching wasn’t on par. There were times when I just couldn’t throw the ball, sometimes even letting them get a walk,” Haydon said. “The pitcher is the backbone of the team, and I need to be solid in the future to ensure that the team has the best chances of winning.” 

Despite Hayfield’s solid play style, Jefferson still fought hard the entire game. 

“We just couldn’t find any loopholes in their game. Props to them for playing so well,” Haydon said. “After 15 minutes, we realized that we had to fight for every bit. They weren’t willing to give up any free runs or anything like that.”

Although the team’s performance might not have been their best, they found support among each other throughout the game. 

“Every time a baseball went our way, we received huge cheers from the dugout. It was nice knowing that hope was still alive,” Haydon said. “People might not think support is as important from the dugout, but it’s actually the opposite. Everybody on the field heavily appreciates it.” 

With a few more regular games and districts coming up soon, the team looks to work through their weaknesses together. 

“The key problem right now isn’t our individual skill but our team chemistry. If we get that up and running, I think we’ll be more successful,” Haydon said.
