The Atoms baseball team faced a tough lost against the W.T. Woodson Cavaliers, on March 28.

The team suffered their fifth loss since their win over the Osbourn Eagles 10-6 in the team’s second second scrimmage of the season.

‘We are facing a tough string of consecutive losses,” junior Ryan Gammon said.

At the top of the first inning, the Cavaliers took the lead 3-0 against the Atoms.

The Atoms then came back before the end on the first inning with four runs to take the lead 4-3. In the fifth inning, sophomore Anthony Rodriguez hit a single RBI to tie the game up 5-5. In the next two innings the Cavaliers would take back the lead by scoring three more runs.

At the bottom of the seventh inning, the Atoms trailed the Cavaliers 9-5. By the end of the game the Atoms earned one more run, losing by a final score of 9-6

The Atoms look forward to improve before their next game on April 1 in a game against the Lee Lancers in the Icebreaker tournament. The Lancers will provide stiff competition for the Atoms because they have proven to be a very well rounded team.

Before heading into the game the Atoms look to improve on and off the field.

The team wants to strengthen their fielding and hitting on the field. Off the field, the Atoms look to improve upon their attitude and how they react to adversity.

“We want to improve in every category so that we can start to win more games,” Gammon said.

After their game against the Lancers, Atoms will face the Hayfield Hawks on April 3 followed by two games against conference rivals the West Potomac Wolverines and the Mount Vernon Majors.
