Vikes baseball eyeing state bid


Tuesday night, Vikings played Topeka High and won both games. With the addition of this win, the season looks bright for these Seaman High School baseball players and their chances at heading to State.

Starting pitcher, Parker Wildeman, threw some great pitches during the first game, earning Vikings a quick and easy win.

Despite taunts from the opposing school, the Seaman players handled their stance strongly with great sportsmanship.

For a moment during the second game, it looked as if the Topeka High Trojans were coming for vengeance until the Vikings came back strong and earned 8 points in the fourth inning.

Recognizably, the Trojans had some great batters and defense; however, the Seaman Vikes still made it through.

Senior player, Sam Payne, hit a home run in the second game which resulted in cheers from everyone in the stands and many RBIs for the Seaman players.

Seaman took the win, 17-9, for the second game, making the night well worth the effort.

The Vikings also played Manhattan this last Friday, winning both games on their turf. Things are looking great for these boys this season. Go out and support the boys on April 26, at Seaman High School against the Highland Park Scots.
