Having finished off the season with a solid 10-5 record and a share of the district championship, the baseball team will be kicking off the postseason today at 3:30 p.m. at Princeton High School in the first of a best of three series against Frisco Reedy.

Reedy, finished with a 9-6 record in district play, and placed fifth in their 10-team district. Though they are a strong team, Ringler is confident in Lovejoy’s chances.

“The competition’s pretty solid,” sophomore Josh Ringler said. “They have a couple of good guys on their team, but our guys’ll probably neutralize them.”

Should the Leopards win the series, they would advance to Area and play the winner of the neighboring Bi-District matchup between Highland Park and Kimball.

“I feel pretty confident going into the playoffs,” sophomore Josh Ringler said. “I have a lot of confidence in my team and I hope we do well.”

Game two of the series is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. tomorrow, and game three, if necessary, will be played on Saturday.
