Sumter—The Wilson Hall baseball team is an experienced squad that has already shown a mental and physical toughness and advanced deep in the SCISA playoffs.

The Barons earned a co-region championship in the regular season. In the post season so far, Wilson Hall has defeated Hammond 4-3 and 13-3 in the state quarter finals to advance to the semis.

Facing a tough Cardinal Newman team in the state semi finals, the Barons took the first game 6-5, then fell in the second game of the series, 3-1.

At press time, the deciding game three match up with Cardinal Newman was scheduled for May 11.

Head Coach Adam Jarecki earlier in the Spring pointed to the experienced pitching staff as among the keys to success for the team.

The Barons’ pitching staff includes Senior Drew Talley and Junior Charlton Commander.

Defensively McLendon Sears helps to lead the team at shortstop. Sears has already signed to play at the University of South Carolina.

Dalton Dabbs, a junior catcher, is helping to produce offensive punch for the Barons.

Daniel Reynolds is playing at third base and he is also one of our pitchers.

And despite some hiccups earlier in the season, Jarecki seemed pleased over all.

“We are hitting the ball decently and we are getting some key hits at the right time and that’s helped.”

In other Spring Sports news, the Lady Barons softball team - under the leadership of Head Coach Teresa Alexander, has 19 wins already in the season. Recently the softball team has defeated Cardinal Newman twice, once by a score of 12-2 and again 16-3 in a rematch.

The Lady Barons are looking to make a strong push into the state playoffs, scheduled to begin next week.

The Barons’ golf team continued in their winning ways, taking home their ninth consecutive region championship this Spring and finished third overall in the SCISA AAA State Tournament.
