Mavericks State Title Hopes Dashed

By James Cook:

The James Monroe Mavericks incredible run this baseball season has came to an end in Charleston at Appalachian Power Park falling to Bridgeport 4-0 on Friday.

The Mavericks had a rough first inning giving up three runs and a couple errors did them no favors , but they would settle down after that. Grant Mohler only gave up five hits on the day and only one Bridgeport run was earned.

The Indians are three time defending state champions for a reason and it showed as they shutout the Mavericks and will now battle Weir High School on Saturday to try for  number four in a row.

James Monroe will bring back several key players next season including Grant Mohler who was only a junior this season. The Mavericks had a nice run in 2017 and expect to see them again in 2018.
