As the season comes to a close, the players are remembering the good and bad times that happened throughout this season.

“This team is filled with a bunch of good, hardworking kids. I think they are ready for playoffs,” coach Vic Alkire said.

“The bond this team has is incredible. This is by far the closest team I have ever been on. We all play for each other, and want each other to succeed just as bad as we want ourselves to,” senior Cameron Hoff said. “That’s how we were able to get this far and have the opportunity to compete in playoffs.”

The Bulldogs also remember the hardships they had to endure to make it this far.

“I was a little disappointed with the result we had in league, but there is nothing we can do about that and we just have to focus in the moment and take it one pitch at a time,” senior Noah Denoyer said. “However, I think it has made our team even more hungry for the playoffs and makes us really want to show people what we are made of.”

“I was disappointed about the game we played against St. Mary’s when I pitched five strong innings. We had the game 11-2. I got pulled out and the relief pitchers couldn’t get the job done,” Bolton said.

The Bulldogs had a record of 10-5 in league, tied for second, and an overall record of 22-7.

The Bulldogs are competing in playoffs, which they have high hopes of placing in because of their success in previous tournaments and overall improvement throughout the season.

I like how we are responding to each gamed differently, we seem fairly prepared for playoffs. The boys just have to keep up the good work.”

— Vic Alkire

“I think we can run the playoffs. We definitely have the talent and the drive to achieve it. We just need to win a few more games, and we have got it,” Denoyer said.

“We have performed well so far. We still have to focus on improvement for playoffs, but we are starting to see the ball well,”  Alkire said.

The Bulldogs faced off against Turlock on May 18, winning and advancing deeper into playoffs. The Bulldogs will compete in at least two more games in playoffs.

The next game will be against Beyer High, May 23, at the University of the Pacific.
