Going into their game against #10 ranked Millard North on April 11, the varsity baseball team were underdogs, but at the end of the 9th, they upset the Mustangs 6-5.

The score was tied 5-5 in the top of the last inning. Senior Rodney Whaley started the inning off with a triple to right field, then senior Ryne Renbarger hit him home to take the lead.
