Congratulations to the Norsemen Baseball team for a Successful Season

The Norsemen ended their season on Thursday, May 21st vs. Gardner South Wilmington in the first game of their regional at Earlville.

The Baseball team had many highlights including a tie for second place in LTC, the first unassisted triple-play ever in school history, and were crowned Lisle Tournament Champions on May 2nd. They also ended the season with a 18-12 record under the first year with a new coach.

The team had many individual accomplishments. Alan Hardisty, Drew Tollefson, and Kurt Anderson were awarded with All-Conference. Alan led the team all year with six home-runs, while Drew led the team in batting average all year. Zach Hartman hit his first ever career pinch-hit Grand Slam.

The team will deeply miss the talent and personality of the four seniors that are leaving: Tyler Andersen, Kurt Anderson, Zach Hartman, and Drew Tollefson.

Congratulations to the Norsemen Baseball team with a turnaround year and the best of luck to all of you!
