The Wadsworth Grizzlies are looking forward to their tournament play this season. The Grizzlies were supposed to play on Thursday, May 12 but due to weather conditions, the game was pushed back two days to Saturday, May 13. They will take on the Copley Indians in the first round of the playoffs and the team is walking into the tournament pretty confident after a 12-2 win against the Highland Hornets on Wednesday.
Luke Clinton(12) said. “I think we have a shot to win it all but the team needs to still keep their eyes on the common goal on doing the little things right and playing our game.”
The Grizzlies have almost completed their season with a (6-8) record in the suburban league and a (11-10) record overall. The Varsity Grizzlies last regular season game will be held at Canal Park this Sunday, May 14 against St. Vincent St. Mary.This year’s suburban league has been different from the rest, because this year,no team has really “dominated” the league. The Junior Varsity and Freshmen squads have two more games this weekend but their record stands as of right now with Jv at a (7-4) in the Suburban League and a (13-6) overall, and the freshman team with a (7-3) record in the Suburban League and a (12-5) overall.
“I think we’ve had a decent season this year, but we definitely started out the season with a bumpy start, but we got it together and continued the season with determination.” stated Mitchell Gabler(10).
But the focus is on the Grizzlies Varsity squad as they take on Copley with their eyes on the prize. As well as keep a common goal for what is right for the team to achieve the suburban league title, and show what hard work they have put in this offseason. This has helped them become a better team than they were the year before and continue to be in years to come.
