The baseball team caught fire at the right time, winning their first sectional since 1996. However, their post-season run was cut short in the opening game of the Avon regional, as the Trojans fell to eventual regional champs Terre Haute North 12-5.
The Trojans fell in a familiar hole, trailing 7-0 after 2 complete innings. A burst of offense in the 3rd saw New Castle cut the lead to 7-4. The steady defense and strong bats of the Patriots proved to be too much to overcome, as Terre Haute North gradually widened the gap throughout the game.
New Castle finished 18-11 on the season, sending off the seniors with a very memorable close to their high school careers.
