Wildcats capture first-round win in county tournament over Mendon

THREE RIVERS — Three Rivers’ varsity baseball team celebrated Senior Recognition Night with a 9-3 win at home Wednesday over Mendon in a first-round St. Joseph County Tournament game.
“Tonight was Senior Recognition Night for our 10 seniors who have played here at Three Rivers. They have exhibited every game what it means to be a part of the Three Rivers baseball program,” said Wildcats’ head coach Kim Losik.
“They have come to work at every practice and they work as a team during every game. I truly have been blessed as a coach to have these 10 young men on my baseball team, (who have) allowed me the opportunity to watch them mature into not only good baseball players but more importantly as young men. We will miss their leadership next season.”
