BLUEJAYS FINISH SECOND IN STATE

 

It was a great finish to a great year for the Greenville Junior High Bluejays.  The team finished second in the state with a 19-11 ninth inning loss to Shorewood Troy, in the state championship game, Saturday night in East Peoria.  The game lasted nearly four hours and was the second game of the day for both teams.  The Bluejays fought their way back from an earlier deficit, but a huge eight-run scoring streak in the top of the ninth inning for Shorewood Troy was the difference.  Congratulations to our Bluejays' players, coaches, fans, and parents.

Sunday was a big day for the Bluejays baseball team. It started at 1:00 p.m. at the courthouse square, where many fans met to welcome and congratulate the Bluejays on their great win this weekend and placing second at state. From there, the parade went to the Greenville Junior High School. The gym was crowded with well-wishers and fans that wanted to hear more about the Bluejays' awesome weekend.

 

Principal Gary Brauns led the ceremony with touching and tearful high points of the weekend and told the boys, “You are now a part of our history that won’t be forgotten.” Coach Stoecklin’s wife Tonya had to give his speech, because somehow the coach had lost his voice. In his speech, coach Stoecklin praised the boys and his volunteer coaching staff for making this an unforgettable season.

 

The banner that will hang in the Greenville Junior High Gym has been ordered and there will be an official presentation when it arrives.
