Devin PickettSpartans (25-11) eliminated by Marist in IHSA Regional finals

The third time was not the charm for Marian Catholic on May 28, as the Spartans dropped a 6-1 decision to ESCC rival Marist in the title contest of the Homewood-Flossmoor IHSA 4A Regional. Seeking a second straight comeback win, Marian (25-11) fell behind, 5-0, in the early going and never recovered.

Christian Beal and Sean Taylor each went 2-for-4 for the Spartans, who managed only a single tally in the sixth inning.

 

The RedHawks had also defeated Marian this year in both ESCC decisions.

 

JV: Richard Garcia hurled a complete game, Ryan Schmidt knocked in five runs and Jordan Craig and Michael Bohlen each had four hits to key a 14-2 win over Joliet Central to conclude the Lincoln-Way West tourney.

 

Frosh: Cam Bufford allowed just two earned runs in a complete-game effort and Luke Bartolomei went 2-for-2, but Marian dropped a 2-1 decision to Munster. The Spartans also fell to hosts in the Lake Central tourney, 10-0.
