“I think we we’re ready early, especially offensively. For a couple of freshman the stage was big, you saw that. We missed some things that we probably should’ve capitalized on in the game. That’s what under the bridge, they still came back and gave ourselves a chance to win the baseball game.” Says Head Coach Dean Harpenau
Remsen St. Mary’s finished their season with a 35-1 overall record.
