The 6th-seeded Ray baseball team saw its season come to end after an eight-inning loss to 3rd-seeded San Manuel last Saturday, 4 – 3.
The Bearcats advanced to the quarterfinals versus San Manuel after defeating 11th-seeded Superior last Friday, 9 – 5.
The ‘Cats finished the season with a record of 21 – 8, including 11 – 4 in sectional play. They finished third, behind San Manuel and Miami, in Section VI. The 21 wins are the most in a season over the last 10 years.
Despite the disappointment of their season ending, the Bearcats have to be optimistic about the future. Multi-sport athlete Dominic Bravo is the only senior on this year’s roster. The ‘Cats will return eight juniors to next year’s team. There’s no doubt that the loss of Bravo will leave a big hole to fill, but there’s enough talent returning to make up for it.
