High School Baseball:
Camden Catholic Stretches Win Streak to Three

It's very important, especially during the early part of the season, to pick up as many victories as a team can in order to keep up with the division leaders. A team will never know when and if a losing streak could happen, so winning those necessary games could cushion a fall if one does come around. In an Olympic Conference National Division baseball game played at Camden Catholic, the Fighting Irish would score early and often against the visiting Warriors from Camden County Vocational Tech. Starting pitcher Chris Dondarski would pick up the win on the mound for Camden Catholic. The Irish would defeat the Warriors by a 20-2 margin.

The Warriors have been struggling a bit, but it doesn't show on the field as each player shows up ready to play. For Camden Catholic, not losing focus on the main goal and play their game is what the Irish did. The Irish took advantage of their opportunities and score four times during their first at bat and then scored eleven more times during the second inning to jump ahead 15-0 after two innings. After the Warriors watched five more runners cross the plate for Camden Catholic, they would score twice during the fourth inning to avoid the shutout.
