  • With the school year coming to a close, many other things are ending as well. With only a few weeks left of school, many of the students are savoring the bittersweet memories they have made this school year. The Brashier baseball team is no different (Photo courtesy of Mallory Smith).

  • Number seven, junior Tyler Martin, has been playing baseball for Brashier since his freshman year and loves the game. "This has been a great season. I love the team and I will miss playing beside the [boys] everyday," said Martin (Photo courtesy of Mallory Smith).

  • The baseball team debuted their new head coach this season. U.S. History teacher and head baseball coach Nicholas Pintz was excited to get the opportunity to coach for Brashier this year. During his first year at Brashier, he has accomplished many things through constant encouragement that pushes the team to work harder (Photo courtesy of Mallory Smith).

  • After his second year of playing for Brashier, number ten, sophomore Cameron Langston, is proud of the work that they have done this season. “Even with the brand new coach we still performed well and had a decent season. I’m really excited for next year. I think we will be even better and grow even more,” said Langston (Photo courtesy of Mallory Smith).

  • During the last game of the season, against Blacksburg High School, the team celebrated the seniors and all that they have dedicated to the team. This celebration included announcing each player, a baseball signed by the team presented to each senior, and, of course, food. Seniors Cameron Szymanski, Max Hunt, Evan Smith, and Jackson Shirley will be missed, but definitely not forgotten (Photo courtesy of Mallory Smith).

  • Number twenty-six, senior Jackson Shirley, has dedicated all four years of his high school career to Brashier baseball. He has been a crucial aspect to the team’s success. “My favorite part of the baseball team was showing up to the field and getting hyped up before every game. I’m going to miss having that close group of guys next year,” said Shirley (Photo courtesy of Mallory Smith).

  • Number four, senior Max Hunt, is grateful for the time he has spent on the team. He has been a big influence on the younger players through his dedication to the team and the sport. “Playing baseball was a great experience at Brashier and the most fun time I had during high school. I really appreciate all of my teammates that played alongside me. I’ll miss the long bus rides and the daily practices with all the boys and all the fun memories I had with everyone there,” said Hunt (Photo courtesy of Mallory Smith).

  • As the first baseman, number one, senior Cameron Szymanski, has been a key element to the game. Szymanski graduating is a big loss to the team, but everyone is excited to see what Szymanski's future holds. "I'm going to miss playing for Brashier. My favorite part was definitely hanging out with the guys, and I'll especially miss the bus rides with the team," said Szymanski (Photo courtesy of Mallory Smith).

  • After his dedication these past years, it’s hard to imagine Brashier baseball without number twenty, senior Evan Smith. As a pitcher, Smith brought a lot to the team. “Evan has a great arm and helped improve our pitchers. He gave the team someone to rely on during a game, with his arm and his batting. We’ll miss him because he was funny and he helped our team improve and compete” said Martin (Photo courtesy of Mallory Smith).

  • Despite losing four significant players, the team remains optimistic about their future. “Although we didn’t reach the goals we were striving for, it was still an awesome season. Each of our seniors meant a ton to the team, and it was great being able to get to play with each of them,” said number thirteen, junior Connor Beaule (Photo courtesy of Mallory Smith).

  • The amount of work that the boys put into this season is evident in their record. The boys baseball team ended this season with a regular season record of seven to nine. As each player continues to grow and get better, Brashier students are in anticipation for how the season will go next year (Photo courtesy of Mallory Smith).

  • As the sun sets on the Brashier baseball season and the school year, the future of the baseball team is looking bright. With the help of hard work and great players and coaches, the team can expect to continue to be extremely successful in upcoming years (Photo courtesy of Mallory Smith).
