Spring Sport “Senior Day” for the Class of 2020

Spring Sport “Senior Day” for the Class of 2020

On April 3, 2020, the Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA) made the decision to cancel spring sports seasons to further protect our health and well-being as we attempt to decrease the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

The inability to experience a spring athletics season that provides an opportunity to display the passion, commitment, hard work and determination that goes into sport participation has no doubt been tough for all MSHS student-athletes, but it has been particularly difficult for our Class of 2020 seniors.

While replacing the experience of a “Senior Day” is an impossible task, MSHS Athletics would like to provide this special recognition for the spring sport student-athletes in the Class of 2020.  As part of this recognition, seniors were contacted and asked to submit responses that were used to create a “Senior Spotlight” that will also be shared on the MSHS Athletics Facebook page during the month of May.

Student-athletes and their sport participation are listed below.  Click on students to view their “Senior Spotlight” graphic (disclaimer: students without a link can respond to the email sent by Mr. Tiseo so that a graphic can be generated and linked).  Congratulations to our Class of 2020 spring sport seniors as we continue to recognize, honor and celebrate your accomplishments leading up to your graduation from MSHS!

Varsity Baseball falls to Escanaba 5 – 4 in MHSAA District Semifinal

Varsity Baseball falls to Escanaba 5 – 4 in MHSAA District Semifinal

The MSHS Varsity Baseball team faced off against the Escanaba Eskymos in the MHSAA District Semifinal on Saturday (6/1/19) in Escanaba and came up short in seven innings, losing 5-4.

Marquette started off plating two runs in the first inning and held that lead until the fourth, when the Eskymos answered with two of their own. Escanaba then put up another three in the bottom half of the sixth to take a 5-2 lead. However, in the top of the seventh the Redmen were able to plate two runs before running out of gas and stranding the tying run on third base.

Jake Allard-Soucey started the seventh inning off with a hit to left field followed by a ground ball by Peter VandenAvond. Jake Peterson grounded out to the second basemen moving the runners over to second and third. Blake Henriksen roped a double to left field scoring two making the score 5-4. Henrisksen then stole third base before Jon Jason and Justin Wenk were retired to end the game and the season for the Redmen.

“This game really kind of sums up our season. It seemed like we had runners in scoring position all the time but just couldn’t find a way to get them in. The boys played real hard and certainly were in this game right up until the end,” said first year Head Coach Spencer Larson. “We played real well in a lot of games but just made some errors or mental mistakes late in games that cost us. We have to do better at that next season. We competed in just about every game, as we develop we will start winning those close games.”

Leading the way for Marquette at the plate were VandenAvond, Peterson, Henriksen, Jason and Allard-Soucey who all recorded one hit apiece. All-GNC pitcher Brendan Kaski went the distance allowing seven hits while only walking two.

“Escanaba managed five runs, but none of them were earned. That says a great deal about Brendan and the type of performance he gave us today. I couldn’t have asked for anything more,” said Larson.
