The Hillsborough baseball team beat Blake by a significant margin Friday night, with a final score of 13-3.

Surprising, considering the ease of their win, were the number of players who played positions which they did not typically fulfill. Senior player Patrick Puntes, who does not usually bat, did so on Friday. Puntes admitted his unfamiliarity, but also expressed his confidence that he performed to the best of his ability, stating, “It was definitely different, but I felt great. I always come here and just do my job.”

Senior Nick Romano, who caught despite his usual status as an in-field player, pointed out that most players have played every position at some point in their baseball careers, saying “I think I adjusted well, because I used to catch when I was younger.”

Friday was notable not only for the team’s significant win, but also because it was senior night. Although the team expressed happiness at their win, the night turned bittersweet when the senior night ceremonies began. The seniors were presented with framed versions of the Terrier uniform, complete with their individual number.

Freshman Trevor Jones conveyed his admiration for the seniors this year, stating, “We had a really great group of seniors this year, and we’re losing eleven players when they move on.” Jones also expressed his anticipation for the struggles the team will face next year, explaining, “The recruitment process will be tough next year, it all depends on the incoming freshmen. We’ll basically be rebuilding the team from the ground up.”
