Nicko Meadows delivers a pitch during the team scrimmage on March 4.

The roster has grown significantly since last season with many freshman additions. Their first game was on February 23 with a win 7-2 versus Bethel, with other results being on February 24 against Dixon High School which was a loss 9-2, and on February 26, again versus Dixon High which was also a loss, 9-0.

While many freshmen may not be starters, this is a good experience for them to be ready for games later in the season. On the upside, the season looks very promising.

“I’m stoked! We have a very large roaster with many talented players. The coaching staff is very much looking forward to the season, we believe our players will be very successful,” VCHS Academic Dean and assistant coach Mr. Andrew Wilson said.

Many athletes also can get easily injured and coming back from that can be hard especially when they are season-ending injuries.

“After the recovery my expectations were a lot lower than the actual expectations of me. Compared to last year I had declined a lot and had tons to go before I was back where I was both physically and mentally. Overall, it was difficult getting back into the “swing of things” as I still aim to grow,” sophomore Grayson Frische said.

The next few games are on March 8 at Rio Vista at 3:30, and March 10 versus Rio Vista at home at 6.
