Spring Grove, South Western and Hanover school districts, including Hanover, Heidelberg Twp., Jackson Twp., Jefferson, Manheim Twp., New Salem, North Codorus Twp., Paradise Twp., Penn Twp., Seven Valleys, Spring Grove, West Manheim Twp. and Adams County
A lot of high school baseball teams would be very wary of opening the district playoffs against the exact same team, with the exact same pitcher throwing, that knocked them out last season.
But Spring Grove is not a typical team, as coach Eric Zeigler is well aware of. Although Wilson beat the Rockets last May, it only motivated the group from Papertown.
Playing on their home field, Nick Spangler tossed six solid innings and Levi Krause retired all three batters he faced; that combined with some early offense earned Spring Grove a 3-1 victory over the Bulldogs.
