The varsity baseball team defeated Copley 13-3 in an OHSAA Sectional Final game on Thursday afternoon. Jake Johnson (5 RBIs) and Nate Lucarelli (RBI) led the hitting charge for the Bees with three hits apiece. Breydan Cavey, Josh Bobey, and Brenden Stewart (2 RBIs) all had doubles for Medina. Ethan Johnson had a single, an RBI, and a stolen base, which tied him for the school record for stolen bases in a season (25). Eric Bertulies picked up the win on the mound, while Ryan Fischer came on in relief and was very effective.
Medina improves to 17-10 overall on the season. The Bees advance to the District Semifinals at Barberton where they will take on the Firestone Falcons at 5pm on Tuesday of next week.
