"We faced a well balanced Warriors team that didn't make many mistakes," commented B/E head coach Brian Perleberg. "Their pitcher (Mason Lampe) threw strikes, limited his walks and received some great defensive play. On the other hand, we had a couple of errors that came at costly times and our pitchers gave up thirteen walks. You can't give a strong team like WHN that many opportunities and expect to win."

Coach Perleberg also noted, "Their shortstop, Kelly Engquist, took away several near hits by making some big league plays that you don't often see in high school baseball."

Engquist is a sophomore at Herman-Norcross Community Schools.
