Varsity baseball recently went head-to-head with Landstown High School on May 16, 2024, for their final regular home game of the season, winning with a score of 4-3. 

“Our energy throughout the whole game was high, and with some tension between the teams and officials, we really dug deep to keep the game in our hands,” said senior Daved Holloway. 

The Dolphins first got onto the board with Landstown’s mistakes, allowing junior Austin Crew and sophomore Tre Hamilton to proceed to walk, each scoring one run in the bottom of the first inning. 

“It’s just a great feeling when you can capitalize on the other team’s mistakes, especially early in the game to get some momentum for your team,” said Tre.

Freshman pitcher Daniel Hamilton secured the win for the Dolphins by allowing one hit and zero runs over five innings, striking out four and walking four, according to head coach Peter Zell.

“I was just having fun out there. The umpire’s strike zone was pretty bad, but I had to push through and keep throwing strikes,” said Daniel. “Landstown is a good hitting team, so I was proud of myself at the end of the game to hold them for zero.”

Sophomore Connor Mais and junior Ryan Gocio each collected one hit throughout the game. Tre, Austin and Holloway each drove in one run. The Dolphins had a strong eye at the plate, stacking up six walks for the entirety of the game. 

Tre went on to steal two bases, bringing the total to six bases stolen throughout the game. 

“It’s really just getting my job done. I was doing what I could to get into a scoring position to make it a little easier for the batter to drive in a run,” said Tre. 

Landstown’s senior Charlie Hogan scored two runs in the top of the sixth inning on a home run, bringing the score to 4-2. During the top of the seventh inning, junior Cameron Telefson hit a single to the left that allowed the Eagles to put another up on the board, finalizing the score to 4-3 with the Dolphins securing the win. 

“We came out taking advantage of the other team’s mistakes that gave us an early lead,” said Ryan. “The game got close, but we did a great job to keep our composure and get out with a win.”
