Varsity baseball earns two conference wins on Senior Night


The baseball team’s ten seniors were honored in between two competitive conference matchups with Greenville last night. An early lead gave the Rangers a 4-1 win in the first game, and a late, fifth-inning surge secured the second win of the night 3-1 for FHC.

In game one, the Rangers put up 2 runs in the bottom of the first inning for an early lead. The Yellow Jackets were able to plate a runner in the fifth for their single run, but FHC outhit Greenville 6-4 in order to take the 4-1 victory.

Junior Grant Coughlin led the team at the plate by going 2-2 with a run scored, while seniors Luke Herzog and Dylan Tucker both went 1-1 with base hits. Seniors Adam Tellier and Cole Coughlin hit .500 in this game with a base hit apiece as well.

Adam and Cole both took the mound in this game; they combined to allow 1 earned run on 4 hits with 4 strikeouts and 3 walks. The defense remained errorless behind the mound to secure the win.

In the second game of the night, the Yellow Jackets were on the board first with a single run in the second inning. A 3-run fifth inning, however, gave the Rangers all they needed for the second win of the night.

FHC outhit Greenville 9-4 and was led by seniors Adam Tellier, Joe Szczepanek, and Kyle Wojczynski, who all went 2-3 this game and combined for a run and 2 RBIs. Cole and senior Connor Palmitier both went 1-2 with a double and a run scored in this game as well.

Sophomore Joey Wise lasted all seven innings on the mound for the Rangers. He allowed 1 earned run on 4 hits with 3 strikeouts and 0 walks.

The Rangers move to 14-10 (13-4) and will go on the road Wednesday to finish up the series against Greenville. The team will have a tournament this weekend to finish up the regular season before entering playoffs on June 1 at Caledonia.
