After winning back-to-back Division championships, JD’s season came to an end on the short end of a 4-3 extra-inning decisionin the Sectional Championship Game. The perennial State Championship contender will say goodbye to its seniors with many moving on to play in college:
• Matt Cappelletti – Hamilton
• Andrew LsClair – Salve Regina
• Casey Kretsch – Lemoyne
• Will Havens – Union College
• Ian Crawford – Undecided
Head Coach Ryan Dera will get a jump start on next season soon, as his summer programs begin as soon as school lets out and will run through September. Coach Dera creates a positive environment involving all team members. At all times, the JD Baseball program promotes a family atmosphere exemplified by several Varsity players including Matt Cappelletti, Casey Kretsch and Ian Crawford, umpiring in the JDYAA youth baseball league.
