Mishawaka falls short of first state championship appearance

PLYMOUTH, Ind. (WNDU) - Down to their final out, Mishawaka baseball had the game winning run at the plate and were unable to pull through as the Cavemen fell to Hamilton Southeastern 4-2 at Semi-State.

Despite the loss, Mishawaka head baseball coach John Huemmer loved the fight his team showed in the final game of the season.

"Couldn't have been blessed with a better group of guys," Huemmer said. "Just hard you know where I got 14 great seniors that today was their last game. It makes it tough because I won't be on the field with them again but that's on a personal level. As a coach, these guys have been playing so well. They gelled well together. Just been blessed with a great group of guys."

Mishawka baseball is still looking for its first appearance in the state championship game.
