The following report was filed by IHSAA umpire Michael Murray:
“I had the great fortune of Umpiring a Varsity Baseball Game at Goshen High School this past Saturday May 4, 2019 between Goshen and Northwood. It was a great game that went extra innings with Goshen Prevailing against Northwood 2-1 in 9 innings. Both Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches and all players were very sportsmanlike and thanked me personally throughout the game, and if questions came up during the game they were very courteous and respectful. We had a couple of close plays in a close game but everyone handled each situation calmly and respectfully of one another. It was just a great atmosphere and what High School sports should always be about. I commend both schools and their administrations for setting a great example of how things should be done. It was a very enjoyable day. After the game was over, both teams shook our hands and thanked us too and that doesn’t always happen everywhere you go.”
Thank you to baseball head coach JJ Dubois, the rest of the coaching staff, and the varsity players for representing Goshen Community Schools so well!
