SPHS is off to a 6-0 start in the shortened “Covid” year. Half way through the season, the team looks promising.

After a delayed start to the season, SPHS baseball has gotten off to one of the hottest starts in program history. Three of their first four games have resulted in double digit victories. 

The offense has been led by Senior and University of Kentucky commit, Jackson Merrill who has three home runs already and leads the team in batting average. Junior Luke Herz has also brought fire power with three home runs of his own. 

Pitching has been dominant thus far only allowing 10 runs all through the first six games, outsourcing their opponents 72-10 in that span. Seniors Nick Carparelli, Connor Eaton, Daniel Parkison and junior Michael Bowles have all been great in their starts so far, and Sean Foreman has been good out of the bullpen in two appearances.

The Falcons travel to Glen Burnie on May 21 for a second meeting against the Gophers. Then will face their arch rival, the Broadneck Bruins on May 24 followed by Annapolis on Wednesday May 26.
