They did play on Monday, April 1, but it was no April Fool’s joke – the Knights really did win. This past week, Lincoln Southeast’s Varsity Baseball team went head-to-head with the Lincoln East Spartans, junior Andrew Duncan pitching all seven innings and leading the team to their first win of the season. Junior Zach Saale hit a double to bring home two runs and secure the win after the team had lost the first four games of the season.

Senior Logan Van Treeck knows what it takes to pull off a win, especially during their first match-up with a city team. “I think we just never gave up. After the first four games, the guys just stuck with it and believed in each other,” Van Treeck said.

The momentum of the game carried through the week, leading the Knights to another win against Elkhorn on Tuesday, April 2. For the rest of the season, the goal is to make it to State and keep the improvement-mentality going. As Coach Montana Jones always says, “You’re not as bad as you think you are when you lose, and you’re not as good as you think you are when you win.”

As Van Treeck plays his last season as a Southeast Knight, he feels confident in the talent that he is leaving behind for next year. “It’s super motivating to see guys step up and put the team on their back and do incredible things,” Van Treeck said, especially since he is on a pitching limit to ensure that he doesn’t get hurt before he starts his college career at Lipscomb.
