Monroe varsity baseball and softball had districts on Saturday, June 2. The MHSAA District 1 games were held at Monroe High School this year.

Baseball

Baseball lost its game 6-0 against Woodhaven ending the season.

Monroe baseball finished this season with a 15-17 record. The boys’ goal was a chance to win districts, and they won their first district game against Wyandotte 7-1.

Varsity baseball coach John Hedglen said the boys had solid defense and cut their errors down by 20 from the previous season. This made a huge difference in getting out of innings and not giving up extra runs.

“Overall we had good seniors, good chemistry, it was positive, there was no problems, and it was pretty solid,” Hedglen said.

“Evin Cooper has done a really nice job at shortstop, he made a couple nice plays,” Hedglen said.

Sophomore Ty Ickes was moved up from the junior varsity team to play with varsity for districts. Ickes said it was a fun experience.

“It was nice being able to play at a higher level and being able to continue my season with varsity,” Ickes said.

Softball

Monroe varsity softball won districts on Saturday, beating Southgate Anderson 9-0 and Woodhaven 10-0.

They are moving onto regionals this Saturday at Southgate Anderson High School. The team will be playing Allen Park at 12 p.m.

Varsity coach James Davis said the reason his team works so well together is the desire to compete and win, the trust with the teammates and coaches, and hard work.

“We played extremely well in every phase of the game during districts, so I know the girls are up for a challenge,” said Davis.

Abbie Begley made a lot of good plays at third base in both of the games they played.

Freshman Ellie Sieler said her first year on varsity softball has been a fun experience and that all of the girls are really nice.

Davis said everyone contributed to the win but in the finals, Senior Nicole Sieler’s home run and Junior Samantha Spicer’s grand slam helped end the game early.
