Coming off of another district title win against the Chaminade Red Devils, the Colts have a lot of momentum going. Coach Davis’s team has gained the name ‘Come back Colts’.

In the 2022 district title game on May 21, the Colts were down 0-8 coming into the bottom of the 4th inning. Junior Stephen Wesolich kicked off the colts with a triple to get the ball rolling. They proceeded to score 9 runs and go up 1 point going into the top of the 5th inning. The game lasted 9 innings being neck and neck the entire time with the Colts finally coming out on top in the bottom of the 9th, making the score 13-12 colts. 

Sean Kang, junior and catcher for the Colts, had himself a game. From a home run he scored in the regular season, Sean Kang adopted the name, Kang Bang. Sean Kang was a key player on both offense and defense for the colts hitting the game-winning hit and being the last player at-bat for the colts.

“I’m just happy we could do it back to back and I could be a part of what we have built as a team,” Kang said. 

Being one of the bigger hitters, Kang has been a vital member of the team and been on varsity since he was a freshman.

Kang also said, “this win was much needed, this game was won all over the board, everyone played a part in the win and this is what the game is all about”. 

It was a big game for the junior class. Junior Stephen Wesolich stat-wise was by far the offensive player of the game. Wesolich had 2 home runs and went 4 for 5. Wesolich certainly lived up to the hype and performed. Because of his performance in the regular season and how he lived up to the hype with 2 homeruns, Wesolich was given the name Stoplight Steve, which is a play off of a senior, Joe Siervo, who goes by his instagram handle, Stoplight Swervo. 

“It was a crazy game, I was just happy I could help the team and we could come out with the win and continue our season for both me and our seniors,” said Wesolich. 

The Comeback Colts have been down in almost half of the innings they have played in districts but each time they have come out with the win. The grit, grind and hustle that the boys have has paid off and in turn been extremely entertaining for fans. 

Unfortunately, the Colts lost to Ft. Zumwalt East in sectionals  on Saturday, May 28 at Fort Zumwalt East.
