Eagles Fall to Trojans on Senior Night in Baseball


Things did not quite go as planned on Thursday night, as the Ashley baseball team lost their last conference game against West Brunswick by a score of 10-3. Each team collected 11 hits, but the Trojans capitalized on more of their chances. Donovan Francis started on the mound for Ashley, who also utilized Noah Borntrager and Kameron Johnson. Offensively for the Eagles, Shane Shepard led the way, with a double, a homerun, and 2 RBIs. Cully Crott added 3 hits, and Kameron Johnson had 2. The Eagles finished in a tie for second place with Hoggard, but by virtue of a tiebreaker, earned the #2 seed for the first ever Mideastern conference tournament which begins Monday. Ashley will host an opening round game against the South Brunswick Cougars. Ashley's record is now 15-6 overall, and finished with an 8-4 conference mark.
