Congratulations to the Wolverine Baseball Team!!!
The Western Hills Baseball Team had a phenomenal season this spring. They finished the season with a record of 27-10. They claimed the 41st District Championship by beating Frankfort 10-0 and Franklin County 13-3. The Wolverines then surprised many in the 11th Region by beating Madison Southern 2-1 and Henry Clay 9-1. These victories assured Western Hills a spot in the 11th Region Championship game - a feat that had not been accomplished since 1989. Unfortunately the Wolverines were beaten by Scott County in that game by a score of 6-2. Despite the season ending loss the Western Hills Wolverines have much to be proud of this season and should hold their heads high. Congratulations to Coach Drew Chism and these fine young men.
