The Parkway South Baseball team began the season with a hot start posting a record of 6-1 in the first 7 games. The Patriots are led by senior pitcher Aaron Schromm.  In his first four starts, he was 4-0 with a 0.30 Earned Run Average. The Patriots face the Hazelwood West Wildcats today at home. 

Schromm allowed one earned run and stuck out 30 hitters over 23 innings pitched. However, he said he doesn’t care as much about individual accomplishments.

“I only focus on one stat, the team’s record, and we need to get back to winning games,” said Schromm.

Schromm has not pitched in a few weeks after allowing eight runs over 3 innings of work against Eureka on April 9th

“I really want to get back on the mound and help the team,” said Schromm

After a 6-1 start the Patriots are now 7-15, but this hasn’t lowered the confidence of the team, according to varsity coach Ryan Evers.

We have not lost confidence and we continue to work toward achieving our team goals.  We will turn things around by getting back to the basics and focusing on the small things that we can control day-in and day-out,” said Evers.

The team has had the harder part of  its schedule as of late, including Lafayette and Summit, but the team is determined to get back on the right track.

The team only has four seniors on the roster.

“It has given the seniors we do have a clear leadership role.  Additionally it has provided opportunities for our underclassmen to step up and play leadership roles at times,” said Evers.

The team has had a lot of players step into bigger roles this season.

“Senior Aaron Schromm dominated on the mound and Ben Collier, Joey Kritchell and Carter Morgan helped power the offense. We played really good team defense, sophomores Luke Smith and Nathan Eye really stepped up and played well defensively,” said Evers.
