Huskies baseball off to strong start

Confidence can be beneficial for a team, but overconfidence can lead to problems. The St. Anthony Village High School baseball team has been able to use the former to its advantage and avoid the latter during its season-opening surge.
The Huskies improved to 6-0 with three victories last week. Two of them came against perennial Tri-Metro Conference contenders.
“We’ve played a good schedule against a lot of good teams,” said St. Anthony head coach Troy Urdahl. “Keep playing the right brand of baseball and hopefully we’ll keep winning games.”

“Pitching will be our strength,” said Concordia head coach Eric Schutte.”We don’t have anyone who will overpower on the mound but all keep the ball down and hit their spots.”
