Salisbury Christian School baseball wins ninth consecutive playoff title

Salisbury Christian School’s varsity baseball team has now won nine consecutive playoff titles.

At home in Salisbury last week, the SCS Jaguars defeated the Holly Grove Christian School Eagles to earn yet another Peninsula Athletic Christian Conference title.

The game began eventfully, with the Jaguars leading 3-1 at the bottom of the third.  At the top of the fourth inning, the Eagles tied up the game.

The momentum shifted for a final time, however, in the fifth inning, when Salisbury Christian tallied a score of 14-4, ending the game early due to mercy rule.

“Our boys were focused from the start,” says Gene Hawke, SCS athletic director and baseball head coach.

“The strike zone was a little tight, but our pitchers adjusted as they should, contributing to the great team win.  I couldn’t be more proud of them,” he said.

The Jaguars had a 13-5 record for the season, playing as one of the youngest teams the school has seen for years, with only two seniors.

“We had four freshmen playing a lot this year, which is not common,” says Hawke.  “All of our players are just dedicated, regardless of their age or time on the team.  We have striven to create an expectation of excellence, and that effort has paid off for the past nine championship wins.”
