|How Will The COVID-19 Threat Effect Our Summer Youth Boys Basketball Camp???
Obviously, there is no answer to the question at this point.
After conferring with Coach Mike Code we have decided that it will remain scheduled for June
15th-18th at this time. We will make a more definitive decision at a later date.
However, applications will not be published nor accepted, nor will invitations be sent out prior to
May 1st when we will have a better handle on the situation. It would not be unprecedented for us to
conduct camp later in the summer prior to the resumption of school.
|2012 Baseball Mustangs
Part Two - The 37th District Tournament
The 2012 Brossart Baseball Mustangs were not the top seed
in the 37th District Tournament. We had lost to Campbell
County 4-3 in nine innings back on April 26th at St. Mary for our
only district loss. The Camels had lost to Scott and the Eagles
had lost to us.
It was determined by coin flip that the Scott Eagles were the
top seed and had no problem defeating Silver Grove.
Brossart and Campbell County hooked up on May 22nd in
Taylor Mill in a one-done confrontation. A loss would mothball
our season with a 20-13 record, and we would have looked
ahead to the 2013 season, never knowing what we missed out
Senior veteran Zach Fardo (right) was entrusted with the ball
and sent to the mound with his mission being to defeat the
Camels, earn a berth in the 37th District finals, and secure a
berth in the upcoming 10th Region Tournament.
Former Brossart assistant, Scott Schweitzer, was in his third year
as the head coach of the Camels. He sent Senior Veteran Jared
White to the mound to oppose Zach Fardo. The two nieghbors lived
two doors apart while growing up in Alexandria.
The Mustangs were the visitors on the scoreboard and welcomed
Mr. White with back-to-back singles and a sacrifice fly by Fardo to
plate Hahn, and the Mustangs led 1-0 after a half inning of play.
After holding the Camels scoreless in the bottom of the first, the
Mustangs upped their run total to three, as Trevor Bezold doubled
to lead off and later scored on a sacrifice fly by Roderick. Orth got
on with a bunt single, and after advancing on a passed ball, scored
on a single by Corey Kramer, giving the Mustangs a 3-0 lead after
an inning and a half. Zach Fardo helped his own cause in the third
inning, doing what he did well - getting hit by a pitch - and came
around to score on a fielders choice, giving our guys a 4-0 lead.
Jared White was lifted after four innings and Rob Franzen came
on. Jared Hahn led off the Mustangs fifth inning with a walk, and
would come around to score our fifth and final run of the game.
The Camels would plate one run in the sixth inning, and loaded the
bases in the bottom of the seventh inning as Conner Verst was
called on to get the final out, striking out the final Campbell County
batter to end the game.
With the win, the Mustangs won their 21st game of the season,
but more importantly qualified for the 10th Region Tournament
and would play Scott the following night in the 37th District
Coach Ron Verst sent Jesse Orth to the mound for the Mustangs versus Scott in the 37th District
Championship game. This game would not only provide bragging rights to the winner, but would also have
seeding implications in the 10th Region Tournament on tap for the following week, to be conducted in Mount
Sterling at Montgomery County High School.
Scott sent to the mound Junior Jordan Pike. The Mustangs, due to the outcome of the
coin flip that determined Scott to be the district top seed, would be the visitors for the
second straight afternoon, and again the Mustangs would take advantage, scoring early
and often, gifting Orth a three run lead as we headed into the bottom of the first inning.
Following a scoreless Scott first inning, the Mustangs again fed on Pike, plating two more
runs in the top of the second, causing Pike to be replaced by sophomore Ray Everett who
was welcomed by a Trevor Bezold single, knocking home our third run of the inning, giving
the Mustangs a 6-0 lead after an inning and a half. Life was good. We added a seventh
run in the top of the fourth inning, and with a 7-0 lead and rolling merrily along all was well
with the world. That would change somewhat as the game played out.
In the Scott sixth inning Jesse Orth who pitched five innings of shutout baseball on five hits, gave way to the
Mustang closer, sophomore Conner Verst, who sat the Eagles down in order bring the Mustangs to within three
outs of claiming the 37th District Championship.
Much as the seventh inning in the Campbell County game became an adventure, so also did the Scott seventh.
Down 7-0 and the Mustangs in complete control, the bottom of the seventh started innocently enough as Josh
Castleman went down on strikes, to be followed by a pair of mental and physical mistakes, allowing the Eagles
to load the bases with only one away and score two on an ensuing single by Aaron Smith. A fly out to Corey
Kramer made it two outs and it appeared that the Mustangs would survive the threat. Back to back hits and a
throwing error changed all that as the Mustangs now clung to a 7-6 lead, desparatly in need of a third out, when
Verst whiffed the final Eagle batter to preserve the narrow victory and win the 37th District Championship.
With the win the 2011 Mustangs improved to 22-12 on the season and would take on Mason County the
following Monday in the 10th Region Tournament.
