The Bobcats couldn’t keep up with an early lead from Idaho Falls High School in Tuesday’s game. The opponents scored most of their points by the second inning and finished off the game with a 5-2 victory. By the time Wednesday’s game came around, Madison’s strength seemed spent as they gave up ten runs and accumulated none for themselves.
Unfortunately, that’s it for the Madison varsity baseball team this season. Though we wish there had been a few more victories, we’re looking forward to what our Bobcats will be able to accomplish next season!
