One goal of Keenan’s baseball team is to overcome last year’s disappointment. The Raiders finished 6-4 (3-2 in region play) last year, missing the playoffs.

Their main focus of this year is to first make the playoffs.

“I think the season is going to be good. We have good pitchers, back catchers and fielders,” Freshman Miles Adams said.

During the offseason, leading into this year’s baseball season, the team wants to work hard at a championship level of play.

Returning the same team minus one player, a senior from last year, the Raiders are prepared for the trials of the season.

“We have the same team as last year; we’re a lot stronger,” Senior Russell Perkins said.

The team has a total of two seniors on this year’s team.

The baseball team has been inspired to go on a championship run. The team’s goal is to make the playoffs.

“We’ve been practicing hard as well as working hard in the weight room,” Sophomore Sanchez Lorrick said.

The Raiders started off their season with a win over the Capitals (Columbia High), 14-4.  The victory seemed a good omen as they prepared for the upcoming game.

The Raiders finished the season 7-12, missing the playoffs.
