High school baseball playoffs in full swing
By Matt Suoja

The Denfeld Hunters may have finished their regular season with a 4-13 record, but don’t take that as a strong reflection of how the team has played.

“We hoped (we would) have a better record,” said Dan DuPay, Denfeld’s head baseball coach. “However, the team has played much better this season and lost some very close, heart-breaking games.”

Some of the leaders of the team were seniors Mike Lewis, Aaron Hoag, Mike Umbarger and Alex Bushey. Lewis, Umbarger and Hoag played in the infield while Bushey played in the outfield.

“Bushey and junior Brad Skurich have been the most surprising as this is their first time playing baseball,” said DuPay. “They have produced very well and have contributed as leaders on this team.”

The Hunters season ended this past Tuesday in the 7AAA North Sub-section quarterfinals against Duluth Central. They lost by a score of 17-1.

“(All of the seniors) have been in a position to lead this team at one time or another,” said DuPay. “Each has responded accordingly to their personalities and character. All the seniors will be greatly missed as they leave Denfeld to make their mark on the real world.”
