Three strikes. You’re out.

Since 1976, when St. Charles West high school was built, the neighboring school St. Charles High formed a rivalry with the newly built St. Charles West.  The schools have been neck and neck with each other for 45 years now, while the schools played each other in each sport for different sporting events.  The sports with the highest attendance have been baseball, football, and basketball: bringing forth a raw and real rivalry between the neighboring schools.

This past school year, St. Charles West managed to triumph over the Pirates in football.  However, the Pirates managed to beat the Warriors on two separate occasions.  On April 26th, the Warriors and Pirates faced each other once again in a conference baseball matchup.  The Warriors sealed the victory 13-4, bringing more confidence for the baseball game the following day.

During the game, the Warriors drew the first blood with a triple from senior Josh Newell, but soon after junior St. Charles High pitcher Nik Pugh managed to have pitch three strikeouts in just the first inning: including a strike out to rising freshman star Brenan Goering.  Soon after, however, senior St. Charles West pitcher Dylan Patterson put up a number of strikeouts to conclude the top of the second inning.

Throughout the rest of the game, seniors Dylan Patterson and Josh Newell managed to get hits, freshman Brenan Goering got a home run, bringing in Josh Newell and Karson Quinn to home plate.

Overall, the score ended up being 12-4, giving the win to the St. Charles West Warriors, giving the Warriors a combined record in baseball, football, and basketball of 3-2.  Congratulations to the baseball team on their win!
