Baseball scores big in preseason
Under the leadership of coach Rob Stuart, Northwood’s Boys Baseball is expected to impress this spring, after a successful season last year, in which the T-Wolves finished with a record of 14-12 and qualified for the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) playoffs.
The team has been pushing through each practice despite the weather and currently has a record of 4-4, starting off the year strong with wins over Crean Lutheran, Westminster and Brea Olinda.
“Practices have been good and there’s been a lot of energy,” senior Sam Cachola said. “We have a really talented team this year and we are hoping to refine things a little bit before league starts. If we can play as a team and find our groove, then we will have a good opportunity to win league.”
Northwood is ready to have a rerun of last year’s great season—but this time even better—as the team has had intense practices consisting of running plays, conditioning and much more. With these practices going on and players in great spirits, the team feels like this year could be something magical.
“I’m lucky to have such great teammates and coaches,” junior Julian Tristan said. “We’ve got great team chemistry and I feel like we can do something very special this year.”
Northwood Baseball hopes to maintain a strong record again this year along with making it far in CIF.
“We have a very talented group of 13 seniors as well as nine players who saw varsity action from last year,” Stuart said. “We look forward to an outstanding season and hope to be standing on top of the Pacific Coast League. This season we are in Division III for CIF and look to make a deep run in the playoffs.”
