Just before Spring Break, Coronado Baseball team faced Grand Junction Central in a tough game. Although Cougars took a loss, they did not go down without a fight. The game ended at 11-5 but the Cougars gave Grand Junction little time to think. The Cougars were the first to get to home base and gave Grand Junction Central a hard time catching up.

Although the game had a slow start, in the third inning the heat kicked in. The first successful run of the night was hit putting Coronado in the lead going into the fourth inning. The fourth and fifth inning followed with six runs from GJC and the sixth inning put the score at 10-5, with GJC in the lead. Grand Junction Central got one last run in at the seventh inning leaving the final score at 11-5.

Ty Thompson (9) described the team’s efforts by saying that, “We played well as a team we just have to give 100% effort each and every play and every time at bat or when we’re on the field.” He went on to say that, “We rallied back but we need to do that every inning.”

The game has put the Warriors in a 3-3 record while Coronado has a 3-2 record. The game was well played by the Cougars as Issiah Sisneros, 12, Parker Martin, 11, Tucker Travins, 11, Beau Chauvin, 11, and Graehame Webb, 10, each had a run contributing to the final score. During the game, Sisneros and Martin had each stolen a base. By the end of the game, both teams were tired but the Cougars put in their best effort and this loss will be the last as they continue to work hard. Come join the fun and support the Cougars at the rest of their games this season!
