Geneseo Head Coach Nicholas Drollette sent this statement to the GeneseeSun.com after the victory: I can’t say enough about what this team has done. This championship means more than the others because of how got here. This isn’t a team full of seniors. We start 4 sophomores and 3 juniors. They have improved day q until now more than any single team I’ve ever coached. Jason pitched very well again. His leadership along with fellow captain Daniel Kaye are a big part of why we improved so much. Daniel is one of the best outfielders I’ve worked with. The catch he made in the 6th was probably the best high school play I’ve ever seen in the outfield. It was gamechanging. It is great that those two and Cole Flint can go out with a block going in the trophy case.
