The Timberwolves varsity baseball team has been on a roll lately, winning their home game against Yukon on Thursday night with an impressive score of 14-0. Yukon has been a force to be reckoned with this season, managing an 18-11 record while Norman North is 14-16. It’s been a rocky start for the T-Wolves this season, with multiple losses at the beginning, but they’ve been on a winning streak for the past two weeks.

Junior Pitcher Spencer Ille was fired up about the team’s recent success, saying, “Usually when I play [Yukon] I usually give up a run or two but I showed up and I was ready to play.” He attributed the win to the hard work put in by everyone on the team. Spencer believes that the team can definitely improve their game by focusing on hitting instead of just looking around.

In the game against Yukon, the boys knew it was going to be a challenging match, but they were determined to come out on top. Spencer started the game pitching and went up five innings, gave up only two hits, and had a shutout.

Looking ahead, the Varsity team has regionals at Choctaw High School on May 3rd at 1:30 pm. If they win all three games, they’ll be heading to the state championship in Tulsa. The Timberwolves have worked hard to get where they are, going from losing to an impressive winning streak of nine games.
