The Elsberry Indians varsity baseball team ended their season in an interesting fashion this year.
After ending the regular season with a double-header at home against Warrenton the Indians received a bye in the first round of the District Tournament, which Elsberry hosted for the second consecutive time.
After that much needed rest, they came out slugging away against Barat Academy in the second round of district play on May 20.
Following a seven-inning roller coaster ride the Indians won that contest by a final score of 11-8.
Senior Caleb Vitro was the player of the game for Elsberry that night.
Vitro went 2-3 at the plate with a grand slam in the bottom of the sixth inning that ended up making all the difference in the game.
Further offensive contributions were provided by Matt Henry, Zach Rimel and Ethan Pott.
Henry drove in one run, Rimel two and Pott three.
The win against Barat Academy earned the Indians the right to face Crossroads at home on May 22 for the District Championship.
