I have coached over 20 years witnessing many amazing and special moments in sports, but Northern’s Baseball run to the state finals was easily one of the best. And the 9 inning state final game, which resulted in a 2-1 victory for Hartland over PN, was truly a special moment. Despite falling short and a few controversial calls, nobody can take away what these players did. Tommy Henry (11) threw 151 intense pitches holding Hartland to 1 run. Senior Max Schuemann played amazing defense and picked up a huge late-inning hit. Freshmen Noah Hecht and Michael Lincoln were amazing in their roles as talented underclassmen. Ryan Beadle (11) played like a bulldog behind the plater, and Brady Young (10) accumulated multiple crucible hits. ┬áSeniors Thomas Scheffert, Collin Hall, Ben Keizer, and Ryan Rochester lead the team to the state finals. And Coach Andrews managed this team beautifully, and without a doubt, it was a great and proud season to be a Huskie!
