Sports editor Kira Farooqui takes us through the win of Oswego High School varsity baseball over Plainfield South through a gallery of photos.
There’s nothing that screams “high school sports team” more than four teenage boys not being able to keep straight faces for more than a minute at a time. OHS senior infielder Camden Pick can’t help but burst out laughing every time I would asked him questions; the other boys, catcher Tyler Stack, infielder Cade Duffin, and infielder Will Pavlick all crowd around him, laughing and giggling. The past season was heavily affected by COVID-19, and as a result, the Oswego High School baseball team wasn’t able to complete a full season, major events like playoffs, and the possibility of state meant something different.
New year, new team. This season, Panther baseball is facing significant changes, ranging from the new coaching staff to new conference opponents.
On Friday, April 5, the Panthers took on the soon-to-be Southwest Prairie Conference Yorkville Foxes and faced a tough 1-0 loss in the 11th inning. Despite this defeat, the team’s pitchers had wonderful outings.
