On the baseball side, Head Coach Clint Gingerich and his baseball the team are 5-0 after getting off to a late start to the season. The team is not yet ranked but has played well so far this year. The Indians have outscored their opponents 37-11 so far, and that includes a couple of nice wins over Pella Christian at home last week. The boys will look to keep the hot start going today as they face Grinnell in a single varsity game at home.
