After a 10-2 win in conference play over Wynford this week, the Ontario baseball team remains undefeated in NCC play at 7-0 and 16-1 in all games.  Mitch McCrystall struck out ten Royals in the win with the Warriors pounding out ten hits.  With the regular season coming to a close, Ontario has a good shot at winning back-to-back NCC championships.  Something that is not lost on the seniors with this being the final season that the Warriors compete in the NCC as they move to the NOL next fall.

Ontario has five conference games remaining with Riverdale, Crestline, Lucas and two games with Galion before the conference title is decided.  The team also has two non-league contests with Lexington and Clear Fork remaining.  The tournament draw also comes up on Sunday.  Last year, Ontario finished the regular season undefeated and were A.P. Poll champions, only to see their post season end sooner than thought with a 9-4 to Edison at Tiffin in the D-III district semifinal. 

The loss early in last season's tournament, though it is not talked about that much has been used as a motivating factor by several upper classmen.  As coach Dan Gorbett has pointed out, everybody is undefeated once tournament begins and it's only a best of one, so you always have to be at your best, or at least better than your opposition.
