The local boys finally got on the baseball field Thursday, April 26, for an “all Sleepy Eye” doubleheader. The Indians and Knights split on the night with the Indians winning the game one—the seven inning game and the Knights taking the five inning second game.

Game one Indians 8, Knights 1

St. Mary’s Coach Bruce Woitas summed up the game: “SEPS took advantage of some SESM errors in the sixth inning to break open a close game, and went on to get the 8-1 win. I thought for our first game out with a very young team we played okay,” said Woitas. “We hurt ourselves the one inning, but the kids kept their heads up.”

Game two Knights 11, Indians 3

“It was a tale of two games,” said Indians’ Coach Aaron Nesvold. “In game one we had good pitching and took advantage of situations very well. For game two we did not have good pitching and St. Mary’s took advantage of the situation. Even though it was the end of April, we need to keep in mind that it was the first games—so there are still things to work on and things that we need to do a better job of.”
