Their overall win ratio was nine wins and six losses along with their 3 and 0 wins at home. They are currently ranked 288 in the state, according to MaxPreps.\r\n\r\nThere were also some\u00a0 key highlights of the year fir several of the Spartan baseball players. Spartan no. 20 Daylon Colley was a excellent batter up for the team. During most of the home and away games he has completed a great amount of batting to help the team achieve their home runs. Spartan no. 1 Riley Smith performed well with the base running this season. He has stolen base several times since he also played this year.\r\n\r\nEarlier this year, Spartan head coach Corey Mann said that reaching regionals was of his biggest dreams this season, and now, he might achieve it.\r\n\r\n\u201cHeading to regionals would be my goal,\u201d Mann said in a pre-season interview. \u201cIt\u2019s about having team chemistry, the closer the team works together we should definitely have a shot towards going to regionals.\u201d\r\n\r\nEven if the Spartans do not qualify for regionals this year, Mann intends to continue his dream of pushing the baseball team to reach further lengths than they have in the past. He also mentioned it was not his first time of succeeding to compete in regionals.\r\n\r\n\u201cI have coached in the past and the baseball team has made it to regionals,\u201d Mann said. \u201cAgain, the goal is to get inside their heads and build that team chemistry. It\u2019s all about putting forth a team effort.\u201d\r\n\r\nIt is uncertain to determine whether the Spartans will qualify to participate in regionals. WVSSAC is still collecting and finalizing scores for all schools around the state. The results are likely to be posted by next week.
