As with any season, there is a hope to be better than the previous season. The goal is to accomplish big things. With a good group of seniors, and a nice mix of underclassmen, the 2018 squad looks to impress.

“With the team we have got this year, I expect us to have our first winning season in a while,” said Mason Miller, senior.

The Illinois weather has proved to be difficult. Most non-conference games have been cancelled and are likely not to be rescheduled. As spring came the snow stayed. Cancellations of both practices and games quickly piled up. In the first game after a week of cancellations the team lost 9-0 to the Belvidere Bucs but quickly rebounded in the next two games against Belvidere North and Jefferson. The players found it hard to get into a rhythm when the weather is difficult. Regionals are coming soon and wins will become a big factor in seeding.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         “Playing games early in the season are always great to get the team chemistry up,” said Miller. “When it comes down to it, we need to produce results and come away with the tough wins, no matter what. No excuses.

One final hoorah would bode well for a Guilford team who in the past has had so much potential but couldn’t put it all together in time.

“This team has much more talent than in other years, but with that talent comes some inconsistency.” said Conrad Cuevas, senior.

For some seniors this could be their last season playing baseball competitively. Others like Max Klein and Jake Klekamp look to continue their careers in college.

“I will miss the coaches’, bus rides, and most importantly Matthew Hansen,” said Troy Swanson, senior.
