Lancers Baseball: Making History

The 2024 baseball season is coming to an end at Lakeland Regional High School after an exciting and history-making season. These Lancers have made an impact like no other and are sure to continue the trend of upward success.

The Lancers held a record of 19-7 before advancing to states, making it to the finals against Pascack Valley. In a heartbreaking defeat, the team lost 5-0. Prior to that, the team dominated both the first round over Jefferson, the quarter finals over Ramsey, and the semifinals over High Point.

The LRHS baseball team had a rocky start beginning the season. The Lancers lost their first two games leaving the team in a gloomy mind-set. However, after the team’s 3-2 win over Fair Lawn on April 10, everything started coming together. The Lancers created a more bonded team, letting the players enjoy their time together out on the field, and it showed in their play. An upward trend of success began, which led the Lancers to a County victory of 4-1 against Pompton Lakes High School. Making history, these Lancers have been the first LRHS baseball team to win counties since 2006.

Junior Mason Morgan and sophomore Mickey Gilligan both stated how outstanding games this season were county game victories over Pompton Lakes and DePaul Catholic. They felt as these were the games that had the most pressure and excitement for the team.

Gilligan said how he is hoping to be a part of another conference and county win for LRHS as it feels like an accomplishment to make history. He hopes to keep Lakeland baseball on an upward trend for ongoing seasons.

Overall this team showed what it means to be a Lancer, putting their best foot forward for ongoing success.
