Seton ends season in the semifinals but had a nice ride getting there

Seton Catholic Central suffered a tough 2-0 loss at the hands of eventual Class C State Champs Hoosic Valley. The Saints displayed good defense and pitched their way through the STAC and Section 4.

But when the time came to hitting in the clutch Saturday,  The Indians lefty John Rooney pounded the strike zone and got the Saints off balance holding them to only 4 hits.

But even with their offensive struggles this year, it's always hard to get to the state final four and the Saints were able to do that for the second straight season.

"It's definitely an awesome experience. the last two years of high school have been great coming out and getting a chance to play on the last day of the season it feels great. It's hard to win two years in a row and we just compete every single day to get better and that's what happened Saturday," said Senior Michael Korchak.

"We didn't score a lot of runs all year, we weren't as offensive minded as '09 or last year. We have lived with close games all season long," said Seton Head Coach Jim Miller.

The Saints graduate four seniors from the starting lineup and finish with a 17-5 record this season.
