Severna Park JV Baseball Caps Perfect Season With County Title


A six-run third inning put Broadneck ahead of Severna Park in the JV baseball county championship on May 7, yet the Falcons did not blink. They scored two runs in each of the next three innings and held the Bruins to only one more run as Severna Park won the JV county championship, 8-7.

The grit they displayed was not surprising to anyone. They played hard their entire season, which ended with an 18-0 record.

Severna Park JV baseball coach Pat Carr said an earlier game against Broadneck set the stage for the championship comeback.

“I told them they were going to have ups and downs and there was going to be adversity, and if we could overcome that, we win the day,” Carr said.

They did win the day, as they had all season. Throughout the spring, the Falcons got stellar pitching from Reece Davis (7-0, 2.0 ERA) and Evan Boucher (4-0, 0.87 ERA).

“They just throw strikes,” Carr said of his top two pitchers. “They’re both hard throwers, but they are able to locate. They also work quickly and that keeps the defense awake.”

Teddy Uy (2-0, 2.0 ERA) and Tyler Bowerman (1-0, no runs allowed) also held opposing offenses in check.

Offensively, the entire team produced and got on base. Boucher had a team-high 21 hits and drove in 17 runs, and Kyle Witte was just behind with 16 RBI. Davis hit .448 and tied Timothy Nguyen with the team lead with three home runs. Brett Hudson led the team in doubles with six and had 16 hits. Dylan Phillips also contributed 16 hits, and Jacob Burns and Jonah Downey each had 15. Out of players with 30 or more plate appearances, Burns had the highest average (0.536) and on-base percentage (0.618).

All that production led to the team’s 18 wins, but Carr noted that his job is not about wins and losses.

“I saw a lot of growth and maturity from them by the time we played Broadneck in the county championship,” Carr said. “It’s about, ‘Are you going to put in the work and have the right attitude?’ This was my first year with Severna Park baseball after being at Glen Burnie the last eight years, and this is the most talent I’ve ever coached. They’re going to do big things.”
