WEST TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – The West Vigo Vikings will open up baseball sectionals Wednesday against Owen Valley.
The Vikings have been impressive all season and coming off one of their strongest weeks of the season by earning wins over Northview and Riverton Parke.
Head coach Culley DeGroote says, “We are built on pitching and defense and in an single elimination tournament, that’s good. We like our chances, but we know in our sectional and single elimination anybody can win it really. While we only have to beat everybody once, they only have to beat us once. We will see what happens.”
Sophomore Ryan Shaffer says, “I think we have it locked in. If we play our right game, pitch the right pitcher…our bats are excellent. We have been working our butts off all offseason. I feel great.”
Sophomore Carter Murphy says, “Just the way we play together. We are such a tight group of kids that you can’t replace that. It’s just so fun to play with these guys because it’s like you are playing with your best friends.”
