Emporia baseball cancellation causes contention for Centennial league

Kris Long, Opinions Editor

On Tuesday Manhattan High was supposed to take on Emporia High, but that game was canceled due to weather. Additionally, according to head coach Don Hess, MHS baseball is ‘not sure’ where they finished in the Centennial League.

“I think it counts as a forfeit for [Emporia]” senior Ben Gallagher said. “But I’m not sure.”

They are either 13-5, 15-5, 14-6 or 13-7.

The team progresses to Regionals today when they will take on Wichita East at 2 p.m. at Gardner-Edgerton stadium. The winner of the game or doubleheader will face either Derby or the host team Gardner-Edgerton depending on who wins their game/doubleheader.

The team has a good feeling about the upcoming competition.

“I think we have a good shot [at Regionals],” senior Zac Cox said. “[We have a good chance] to make a run at state and we’re super excited.”

When asked for further clarification, athletic director Mike Marsh declined to comment on the situation.
