Skyline baseball wins third Team of the Week poll

By Kyle Austin

The Skyline High School boys baseball team knows how to close out a win.


Skyline has won its second Team of the Week title, after its lacrosse team won our first one.

As of Wednesday, the Eagles were in a close race with the Chelsea girls track team for our third Team of the Week title.

By the time our poll closed at noon Friday, Skyline had pulled away for a convincing win. A total of 639 votes went to Skyline, more than 54 percent of our total. This marked by far our largest Team of the Week poll, with 1,181 votes.

That means Skyline baseball will be our Team of the Week for April 22-27. We’ll have game coverage, feature stories, photos and more from the team’s week of competition. Hopefully the weather is a little more agreeable than it was during the Pioneer girls tennis team's run as team of the week.

The Eagles have three SEC doubleheaders scheduled for next week: Monday at Chelsea, Tuesday against Adrian (a rain makeup) and Thursday at Pioneer.

Last season, Skyline went 19-16 overall and finished fourth in the SEC Red. The Eagles lost a close 1-0 extra inning game to Pioneer in the district tournament.

Our next Team of the Week poll will open Monday, with five new teams to choose from.
