DECATUR â€” Whitkoâ€™s baseball team saw its season come to an end in its sectional opener against Eastbrook Friday.
The Wildcats fell by a final score of 12-7.
Whitko dug a hole and could not get out of it. The Panthers jumped out to a 3-0 lead after the first inning and did not relinquish the advantage.
â€śTheir leadoff guy reached on an error,â€ť Whitko Head Baseball Coach Erik Hisner said of the first inning. â€śThat kind of set the tone for the game.â€ť
