  • Trojan baseball, softball squads...

     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.

    It’s not often those same folks will mention, much less praise, the work of that team’s athletic trainer, who spent hours prior to the game preparing for the event and time following the game cleaning up and getting ready for the next contest.
