(Perryville) The St. Vincent Indians baseball squad at 7-9 this season is preparing for the Class 2, District 3 tournament beginning next Friday against Meadow Heights.
The Indians have had a challenging spring thanks in part to scheduling 6 games against Class 4 teams and 7 games verses Class 3 teams. Head coach Tyler Search has enjoyed every minute of it and knows his players have learned a lot about themselves because of the tougher competition.
