What Happened: The Falcon boy’s baseball team faced rival Kellam High School (KHS) on senior night this past Monday. It proved to be an emotional night for a senior class that has taken this team to the next level. Both teams kept close scores throughout innings, but it was the final ‘at-bat’ that solidified a home team win.
The Falcons look to carry this momentum into the postseason and to play in their 23rd game, finishing “Mission XXIII”. Completing this “Mission” will earn the team a state bid.
