THE ROUNDUP

As of April 21, the Brophy baseball team sits at 16-7 with five games remaining in the regular season; the Broncos have won eight of their last 13.

The four remaining games for Brophy are against Hamilton April 23, one against Red Mountain on April 22 and two against Desert Vista on April 27 and April 28.

Brophy’s baseball team beat the Mesa Jackrabbits 9-4 Tuesday, April 6 in what coaches called an important win making their record in region play 1-1 as of that game. The Broncos’ batters peppered the field with 14 hits.

Dave Graybill ’12 hit a two-run home run in the game to help seal the win.

“We are getting better as a team because of our senior leadership along with our group of sophomores playing well,” said head coach Mr. Tom Succow about the April 6 game.

Second baseman Emilio Torrez ’12 agreed with his coach, saying it was good to see the team working well together.

“Not only do we have good hitters, but we also have a very sound defense, possibly one of the best in the state that does not give up many errors, which makes our pitchers feel confident on the mound,” Torrez said.

The Broncos lost to Hamilton April 21 by a score of 12-7. Brophy will take on the Huskies again April 23.
