Winning state championships is nothing new for the Glenwood baseball program.
The Gators 7-2 victory over Autauga Academy last week represented the 21st overall state baseball championship won by Glenwood.
The Gators would end their championship season with a 46-5 record.
“We all knew that if we wanted to win, we would really have to play as a team. We didn’t have any selfish players. That was our main goal coming in: play as a team, play for the G on your shirt and not the name on your back,” said senior pitcher Will Harris.
“We should be strong again next year. We should have a pretty good team again. We have got a lot of people coming back. We lost a few people, but think we’ll be if not better next year,” said junior outfielder Josh Brown.
And so we say congratulations to the Glenwood baseball team our WRBL Co-Athletes of the Week.
The Glenwood Lady Gators softball team already has a banner up noting their state championship as well. They’ve won back to back state titles.
“In the state tournament, we hit the ball as good as we have hit it all year. I’m very proud of the team. We broke a record; a single season wins record by winning 50 games. I just couldn’t be more proud of how we finished the year,” said head coach Dusty Perdue.
“I didn’t know that I was going to hit that well. I had a great team behind me. I had a pitcher doing her job throwing in strikes. I just did what I had to do to get the state championship,” said junior catcher Kirstin Reynolds.
“Knowing how well we performed and that we had done that for our coaches, our team, and our seniors, it felt really good winning,” said junior pitcher McKenna Gillespie
