Third baseman and pitcher Luke Sharp sprints toward home plate in the fifth inning, marking the third run of a game against McKinney Boyd High School May 2. The team won the game 4-3.

After finishing the regular season in second in the district, the baseball team lost 2-4 to McKinney Boyd High School in the first round of playoffs on May 4. 

“We were resilient,” head coach Corey Farra said. “We knew that one loss wouldn’t define our season, that we were only playing one game at a time. Once we lost the district title, we knew we had to push through. We had to continue being resilient like we’ve been all season.”

Assistant coach Jim Farley said that, due to the coach and a majority of the players being new this year, the team had a rocky pre-district season. They went into the district season with a record of 7-5-2. 

“There were definitely growing pains in the beginning,” Farley said. “We had to figure out who we were as a team. It was a lot of trial and error and getting on our feet, but we managed to come together and make this season what it was.”

The Hawks finished the district season with a final record of 11-3. Going into their last game, the Hawks had the opportunity to steal the No. 1 spot from Flower Mound, but were unable to, as they lost 2-3 on April 23. 

“In baseball, you walk a fine line,” Farra said. “You have to play with confidence and not arrogance. Losing to Flower Mound gave us more hunger.” 

The team won 4-3 in the first game of its three-game series against McKinney Boyd on May 2. The Hawks went on to lose the next two games in the series against McKinney Boyd, ending their season. 

“We really just need to realize that if we’re not giving 100% at all times, we won’t reach our potential,” catcher Quinn Bergman said. “We’re a really good team, but when we get distracted, we lose.”

Next year, Farra plans to get the baseball program more involved in charity by working with Keeper of the Game, an organization that provides children and young adults with baseball experiences. He also wants to continue getting the school more involved with baseball, the way he believes former head coach Steve Stone did. 

“The unwavering support we have here at Hebron is something I can’t explain,” Farra said. “I never anticipated it. From parents in the stands, students coming to games to administration coming to support us — it feels like everyone is in our corner. It’s one of the greatest atmospheres I’ve ever been a part of.”
