Coach Chris H. reports on a great season, in which our team went 3-2 in the regular season (with one loss by just 1 to Sandy Spring Friends). After the first two games, the team only committed 7 errors for the remainder of the regular season and both defense and hitting improved dramatically.
During the regular season, Krishna L. '23 and Max G. '25 led the team in batting average, with Will H. '24 leading in OBP and Will K. '22 in ERA. In the postseason, Burke played St. Anselm's close, leading by 4 through 5 innings in the PVAC Tournament, before St. Anselm's rallied to win 8-4.
