The Gunnison High School (GHS) baseball team had an intense season this year with 10 wins and 12 losses the whole season and four wins and five losses in league. The team finished the season with a three game winning streak. Coach Tom Percival stated that his favorite highlight of the season was the team’s first win against North Fork. “I enjoyed watching the boys grow as individuals and as one team,” stated Percival. “We definitely improved as the season went on.”   

While Coach Percival had his favorite highlights of the season, the team members also shared their favorite moments. “I really liked playing shortstop and having fun with the position,” remarked Cesar Marmolejo. “Being the starting pitcher was pretty cool,” said Talon Kibler.  

The JV team consists of about 20 players, while the varsity has 18. The team also includes two players from Crested Butte and three players who are homeschooled. “I am thankful for the seniors and the time that they put into the season, the team, and the game itself,” temarked Percival.  The team had a bit of a slow start into the season due to the stubborn amount of snow  leading into the spring months. The boys left bright and early on May 19th to participate in regionals in the town of Cortez, Colorado. The boys put up a good fight but lost the game with a final score of four to seven.
