After a devastating district loss to Jefferson last Thursday, the Knights clinched two district wins this week. On Tuesday, Feb. 28, the Knights defeated Middleton 10-0 and mercy-ruled Spoto 15-0 Thursday, Mar. 2. Riley Shackowsky (’17) took the mound for Tuesday’s game and Koby Fogg (’19) took the mound for Thursday’s.

“It felt good to get our first district wins,” Shackowsky said. “It’s always a competition between us and Jesuit to see who will get first and second in the district, so those games really mattered.”

In a matchup against King on Saturday, Mar. 4, the Knights claimed a 5-0 victory. Peter Feinman (’17) pitched and Joey Scionti (’17), Killian McCray (’17), Mathew Chowning (’17) and Luis Estevez (’17) scored runs.

Now we just have to keep up the good work and find ways to execute and get more wins.”
