Christian Esparza stroked the game-winning hit and Jake Lovetinsky was the winning pitcher as the Broncos 14-under baseball team defeated the Olathe Dodgers 7-6 in first round action of the Gardner post-season competitive tournament at Celebration Park, July 6.
Unfortunately the Broncos lost in the next two rounds and ended their season.
“It’s been a great year,” said Coach Gary Benedict. “We had a young team that competed well and played in a lot of close games. Everyone showed a lot of improvement.”
Assisting Benedict was John Shefcyk. Their roster included Gavin Benedict, Conner Edwards, Esparza, Colton Hamilton, Jake Lovetinsky, Conner McIntosh, Adrian Martin, Van Putnam, Seldon Shefcyk, Alex Strahan, and Michael Weirlein.
