Despite having an on and off season, the Panther baseball team managed to finish the year off with a solid three game win streak. With a strong finish, Saegertown’s final record was 6-11 for the season. Though they lost more games than they won, many of the players do not feel that the season was failure. “I don’t think that our record reflected our team’s potential and we could have done much better now that we know what needed improvement. What really matters though is that we had a fun season” said senior Scott Sada.
In addition to their three game streak, at the end of the season the Panthers beat Cambridge Springs 10-1, making up for their 9-3 loss earlier in the season. Saegertown had a similar outcome with Harbor Creek, losing the first meeting 8-2 but getting a 9-6 in the second to last game of the year. “We started off the season rough, but we began really clicking in the end, and it felt good to get revenge on a few teams that beat us early on,” said senior Trey Reagle.
The Panthers will be graduating four seniors this year: Scott Sada, Trey Reagle, Kyle Tharp, and Cody McDonald. While three of the seniors have other plans, Sada will be attending Penn State Behrend to continue his baseball career. “I’m sad it’s over, but the underclassmen have a bright future,” said Tharp.
