Dogs finish baseball season on high note, Sweaney says

Coach Richard Sweaney’s Bulldog baseball players wrapped up a long and tough season on April 24, completing the year with a 2-22- 1 record. “I was very proud of the kids for sticking with and competing to the very end,” he said Monday. “We played a great game against Sonora in our last attempt to win a district game.” The Dogs fell to the Broncos, 5-3. He said the pitching was there, the hitting was there, and the team played good defense. “The final game just didn’t go our way, but that’s baseball. I am looking forward to next year with so many kids playing this summer. We should look better next season with all but two players returning,” Sweaney said. In the Dogs’ next to the last game on April 21, they lost to Mason, 31-9. Jake Stultz was the losing pitcher. He finished the season at 0-5. “Our top player against Mason was Jon Langseth, who was 2 for 4, with a single and triple, and 2 RBIs,” the coach said. Against Sonora, Langseth pitched well, striking out eight, walking two and giving up only five hits. He finished with a 1-6 record. Stultz led the notable column, going 1 for 3, with it being a double and an RBI.
