On April 14, the Woodland Park High School (WPHS) boys’ baseball team faced off against the Colorado Springs Christian School (CSCS) at the Trojan Invitational Tournament at Fountain-Fort Carson. Despite only being able to play one game due to inclement weather, the Panthers put up a strong fight against the tough CSCS team.
Junior Ian Newsham took to the mound and threw five solid innings, keeping the Panthers within striking distance throughout the game. The offense was led by Senior Tanner McAfee, who had three hits in the game, along with base hits from Senior Aidan Hernandez, Junior Griffin King, and Freshman Gavin Strouse.
Although the game ended in a 5-2 loss for the Panthers, the team is gaining momentum with each game and looks forward to continuing their progress in their upcoming games.
“We are proud of our boys for their performance at the Trojan Invitational Tournament,” said Coach Chris Becker. “They fought hard against a strong CSCS team, and we are confident they will continue improving with each game. We invite everyone to come out and support our team on Saturday, April 29, as they face off against Fountain-Fort Carson at Fountain-Fort Carson High School beginning at 3:30 pm.”
