Bellbrook Baseball seniors optimistic for the season

By, Juliana Packard

The Bellbrook varsity baseball team is having a triumphant season so far with their record being 5-4. The seniors this year are very excited for what’s to come. 

Senior Benton Yoxtheimer talked about his mindset going into games describing it as a “must sweep.” He means he wants not only himself but his whole team to try their best to not only win but to destroy. “The team is a brotherhood. Our next game against Monroe is like a family activity,” Yoxtheimer said.
