Boys Varsity Baseball · Comeback Falls Just Short

On a beautiful night the Cougar Baseball team celebrated the dedication and accomplishments of their Seniors.  The matchup was against league opponent Olathe Northwest.  ONW started the night off red hot scoring in each of the first 4 innings.  But the gritty Cougars did not back down or shy away from the challange.  During their half of the the 5th and 6th innings, the Cougars mounted a comeback and put the game within reach being down 1 going into the 7th inning.  ONW put up 2 more runs in the top of the 7th to extend their lead by 3.  In the bottom half the Cougars got the first 2 men on base, but that was all they could muster.  Final score was ONW 11 SMNW 8.  Your Cougars will be back in action Tuesday, May 4th at ODAC Stadium as they swaure off against the Eagles of Olathe North.  First pitch is set for 5:30pm.
