Baseball Seniors Reflect on Season

As the spring sports season wraps up, senior baseball players Jackson Copeland and Michael Lejeune reflect on their final season as Vikings and their future. 

Copeland says he feels there was more team hype and energy in the post season than there was at the start of baseball.  

“During the regular season it’s fun and you still have to get after it, but the post season just brings a different level of intensity and brings more juice to the ball field,” Copeland said. 

Lejeune feels the same energy spike out on the field as Copeland.

“There’s a lot more energy and everything is just clicking more,” Lejeune said.  

Having it be their last year playing high school baseball and making it this far in the season, Copeland is proud of himself and the team.  

“It feels great we took second in state sophomore year, so we are trying to come back now, I need one of those rings man, I need to get one for high school,” Copeland said. 

LeJeune wasn’t surprised they made it this far.  

“It feels great. I mean, we expected nothing less,” LeJeune said.  

Copeland has decided to keep his baseball career going after High School. 

“I’m going to Pierce to play college ball actually,” Copeland said. 

LeJeune also has decided to continue on with baseball after High School. 

“I’m going to Gonzaga to continue playing,” LeJeune said.
