INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The Shakamak Lakers lost the class A state championship game Monday night at Victory Field in Indianapolis to Washington Township with a final score of 6-0.
The Lakers’ Oscar Pegg had the only hit of the game for Shakamak, coming in the bottom of the sixth inning. Washington Township got a two run double from James Kirk in the top of the sixth to make it 3-0 at the time.
Shakamak ends the season with a record of 18-9 in Head Coach Jeremy Yeryar’s first season. Yeryar said his team should be proud of what they accomplished.
“These kids have nothing to hold their head about,” he said. “They played their hearts out. We just came up short at the last day that’s all. They’re irreplaceable.”
Yeryar said the team had an emotional sendoff during their last meeting before the game.
“I had my talk with them the other night there, Saturday evening, after our last practice and of course I told them everything I feel about them and they told me everything they feel about me,” he said. “It’s an emotional thing. I hope the kids keep coming around and seeing me because we all live in the same town.”
