The team had a great start for the season with a 3-0 record. On friday, the team had a double-header against Otsego, a very tough and talented team. Unfortunately, Hopkins struggled with both games and ended up losing both with scores of 0-15 and 1-7. Hopkins made frequent errors in the field and in the end it cost them a lot of runs. Bright spots for the two games were starting pitcher Blaine Merren, who pitched the first three innings of the first game, Brandon Bohn, starting pitcher for the second game, and Jalen Kisner finishing pitcher for both games. “Sometime’s you eat the bear, and sometime’s the bear eats you,” said Coach Stockwell.
