A sectional final loss to Beloit Turner ended a promising 2017 for the Mount Horeb Vikings baseball team. Now, in 2018, the Vikings are playing with expectations, and the target on Mount Horeb has allowed the team to focus on the task at hand, says coach Ryan Finley.
Finley says the odd winter weather this spring has been challenging for everyone in Wisconsin, but the Vikings are beginning to round into form and set up their spring routine as fields become playable and games occur more regularly. Depth, particularly in the pitching staff, is being tested early on as the Vikings play their way through some tough conference opponents, including Waunakee tonight, DeForest in a doubleheader next Tuesday, and then three straight road games.
Coach Finley discusses how Mount Horeb dealt with practicing indoors and the key to their early-season success and growth in this interview with The Big 1070:
