Fifteen-Win Season Ends In Regionals For Bruins Baseball


A promising season for the Broadneck baseball team ended abruptly as they lost 7-5 at home to Leonardtown in the regional semifinals on May 11.

Devin McGowan and Cade Schuetter both drove in two runs, while Avik Cherry had three hits. The Bruins were locked in a 1-1 game until the sixth inning, when Leonardtown exploded for six runs to pull away.

Broadneck got one back in the sixth and three in the seventh to make it a contest at the end, in keeping with their “cardiac kids” character from the entire season. But with two on and a chance to tie the game, their magic finally ran out.

With a week left in the regular season, Broadneck looked poised to appear in the county championship game for the second straight year, but the Bruins lost two of their final three county games, falling 11-10 to Arundel and 8-3 to Glen Burnie, with those losses sandwiched around a 5-1 win over Chesapeake.

The Bruins ended their season at 15-5. Broadneck will graduate six seniors: third baseman Peyton Cassidy, shortstop Calvin Cook, outfielder Ethan Hopkins, pitcher Andrew Katzen, first baseman McGowan, and outfielder Nate Schilling.
