  • Trojan baseball, softball squads poised for strong finishes

     There were high hopes for the baseball and softball teams at West Brunswick High School heading into the 2018 campaign.

    The baseball team was fresh off a 2017 season in which it advanced to the fourth round of the state playoffs before dropping an extra-inning thriller in Hampstead at conference foe Topsail.

    The softball squad reached the 3A East Regional finals before falling in a best-of-three series against powerhouse Orange.

    Needless to say, the expectations were through the roof as the teams opened their respective seasons this year.

    The junior right-hander yielded just three hits and one walk in seven innings as the Trojans seized an early lead and never looked back in the shutout victory.
