CHARLESTON, W.Va. – The North Marion Huskies capped off a historic season making more history for the school, as the Huskies finished the AA State tournament as runners up.
North Marion made its first ever state tournament appearance in school history where they ran into Logan in the state final.
The Wildcats got off to a good start, scoring four runs in the first inning, and four apiece in the next two.
North Marion struggled to get anything going offensively, and as Logan scored its final run in the bottom of the fourth inning, the game was called due to the 10-run rule.
The Huskies fell to the Wildcats 13-0 in five innings, but Huskies head coach Vic Seccuro is nothing shy of proud of what his team accomplished this season.
“I’m just so proud of these kids. The way they battled all year. We were on the road in every game in sectionals basically and the regionals so that’s hard on kids. So to travel and play and come back home. So I’m just proud of them in every sense of the game. I’m really proud of them. It was a great year,” Seccuro said.
Seccuro also touched on how great it was just to be able to play a full season of baseball this year, especially how hard it has been with the pandemic canceling the season last year.
“I’m just glad they all got this year in. That hurt us a little bit. Losing that year, all of those kids, you lose a year of experience but everybody was in the same situation. So you can’t just say your team suffered but we did lose a couple of good players last year that would have helped us. This is just not a good game to end your season with from the success we’ve had but it is what it is,” Seccuro said.
Three Huskies made the AA All-Tournament team.
