Roland-Story Baseball Camp a big success

—by Todd Thorson

The Roland-Story Baseball Camp was held on Saturday, March 26 at the high school for first through seventh graders. Over 100 attended the camp, which bodes well for the future of the Norsemen baseball program.

“My hope is that after camp the students had lots to share with their parents,” said high school coach Chris Hill, “and that their baseball excitement continues to grow.”

Hill, along with members of his baseball coaching staff and team members, coordinated and assisted with the camp. The camp began at noon and ran until mid-afternoon, with various skill sets set up for players to rotate through. Former R-S players Zach Hovick (now playing at Wartburg), Alex Muhlenburg (at Ellsworth, but out with an injury this spring) and Andrew Schlatter (now at Central) also returned to help with the camp.

“I want to give a thank you to our coaches and players that volunteered their time to help make the camp a success,” Hill added. “I also want to give a thank you to Zach, Alex and Andrew. These three had already done so much for Roland-Story baseball. It says a lot about them that they were willing to come back and volunteer their time at the camp.”
