The Mount Vernon Mustangs varsity baseball team traveled to Omaha, Nebraska on June 21 and 22 to watch the College World Series, where the nation’s best Division-1 baseball teams compete for a National Championship. The team left Mount Vernon on Friday morning and returned on Saturday afternoon. 

This was the first time that Mount Vernon has ever gone on a trip to the College World Series. “I think this was motivation for the team, because it was like how state could be for us,” said incoming senior pitcher Caleb Keen. 

Not only was the trip motivation for the team, but it was also a good bonding experience. “I felt this was a good trip for the team. It gave us a chance to share some laughs and have some fun as we get ready for the second half of our season,” said graduated senior Ryan Clark. 

“The Vanderbilt vs. Louisville game was the best one that we watched,” said Keen. Vanderbilt beat the Cardinals in a nail biter. “The Vanderbilt game was my favorite because it was extremely competitive and came down to the last few innings,” said graduated senior Paul Ryan. The Mustangs are no strangers to close competitive games; ten of their 18 games have been decided by three runs or fewer. 

Several team members think this was a very valuable trip and recommend doing it again. “It helped the team bond closer together and was a nice little break from the season at the same time,” said Ryan.

The Mustangs will look to continue their success in the second half of their season with their current record of ten wins and eight losses. The Mustangs play next against the Vinton-Shellsburg Vikings on Monday, June 24, in Vinton.
