The McNary High School varsity baseball didn’t emerge from last week’s Volcanoes Spring Break Tournament unscathed, but when they were good, they were very, very good.
The Celtics went 2-2 for the four-day tournament. The team took wins over Woodburn and Summit high schools.
“Our defense was pretty good and our pitching staff did well, we just needed to put more runs on the board,” said Larry Keeker, McNary head coach.
The boys’ game with Willamette High School Wednesday, March 27, started well for the Celts with the team taking a 1-0 lead in the first, but a four-run fourth inning for Willamette put the team out of reach when the game was called due to time constraints. Chris Burger scored off a hit by Kaleb Simpson and Nick McDonald scored on a hit by Burger.
