Eagles remain resilient


The IVCC Eagles returned from Myrtle Beach, SC after taking five out six games during their annual spring trip earlier this year and carried that momentum right into the regular season.

The Eagles would win four of their first five regular season games and continued to gain momentum behind solid offense and fundamentals.

Sophomore captain Logan Bima, with a batting average of .330, a slugging percentage of .520, and an on base percentage of .412, set the pace throughout the season for the Eagles.

Michael Baker, a sophomore outfielder, batted .500 accumulating 24 hits in only 48 at bats. He was second on the team with 16 RBIs and also posted an on base percentage of .519.

Another impactful player, freshman catcher Darren Raby, posted a .364 batting average with a team high five home runs and 25 RBIs.

After dropping four games in a row in late April, the Eagles then went on a four game winning streak to close out the month and now stand with a 22-13 overall record, 4-4 conference record.

The Eagles have two regular season games remaining; home against Morton on Saturday, May 2, and a conference match-up against Kishwaukee in Malta on Sunday, May 3.

The team looks to close the regular season out strong and head into Regional play with a shot to go to Nationals.
Students are reminded that the Eagles play all home games at Dickinson Field in Oglesby.
