Crystal City greets Greenville in Class 2 baseball sectionals on KJFF

(Crystal City) The Crystal City Hornets will look to come through on the big stage of the high school playoffs when they host Greenville in the Class 2 state sectionals Monday on KJFF.

Crystal City got hot late last season and won a district championship, but the Hornets suffered a 6-5 loss to Meadow Heights in sectionals to end 2021.

This season has followed a similar script.

Behind the powerful bat of senior Nate Pruneau and the breakout star of freshman pitcher Evan Wolfe, Crystal City has won eight of its last 9 games to improve to 11-7.

Hornets head coach Zach Weiss says the key to turning things around this time was getting focused.

The Greenville Bears are 14-9 and have also won eight of their last nine.

Weiss says they’re a tough challenge, but this group has been waiting to clear the hurdle of a state playoff win since last year.

The Hornets’ last state tournament victory was when they won it all in 2010.

Crystal City looks to move on to the Class 2 quarterfinals Monday afternoon.

Coverage begins with the Flieg’s Equipment Pregame Show at 4:45 on AM 1400 KJFF.
