Kits preparing for a double header against New Trier


The comeback Kits.

After suffering a loss in their season opener, the Kits went on to start   a seven game winning streak, beating the number one team in the state, Oak Park, in their second game.

“We just need to play our game, when we focus on what we do best and how we can perfect our play, there is no team that can beat us,” said coach Frank Consiglio.

Heading forward the Kits are looking strong going into big games against DePaul Prep on April 25 and GBS the following day. With a 7-2 record this early in the season the team is looking to dominate, like last season.

Led by a strong senior class the baseball team is packed with already committed collegiate players. Senior Dylan Mulvihill the team’s ace pitcher committed to University of Penn. over the summer, senior Charlie Maxwell committed to Evanston’s own Northwestern University around the same time, another pitcher, senior Andrew Martinson committed to Middlebury College early this year and Tyler McHolland the team’s starting catcher signed with Heartland Community College just a few weeks ago.

“The seniors have really helped show some of the underclassmen how we play the game. The underclassmen have also really stepped up,” explained Consiglio.

Adam Geibel a sophomore starts at third base for the team. Along with Jesse Heuer a junior starting at second base for the squad.

During their time in Vero Beach this spring break the Kits controlled all of their opponents leaving Florida with a 7-0 record.

“We had a great time in Vero and we were able to learn a lot and grow as a team,” said Consiglio.

The Kits suffered their second loss of the season under very confusing circumstances.   Because the game had to be called due to visibility the score reverted to the previous inning, where the Kits were down to a score of 5-4.

“We should have never put ourselves in that position and I guess we have to abide by the rules,” said Consiglio.
