’Busco off to 2-0 start

April 11, 2014

CHURUBUSCO — With a 5-2 win in the season opener against Woodlan and another win over Oak Hill Thursday night, Churubusco’s baseball team is off to a 2-0 start to the season — an impressive feat as the team only had one practice on the field before the season opener.

As of March 10, Churubusco’s baseball field still had 14 inches of snow on it, forcing the Eagles to practice in the gymnasium and on the parking lot.

“We tried to give them all the game situations through practice,” said Churubusco Head Coach Mark Grove. “Experience is key.”
