NHIAA baseball: Sunapee Lakers back in the finals

Seeking the Division IV title for a second year in a row, Sunapee’s varsity boys baseball team heads back to the NHIAA state championship tournament on Saturday.

The defending champions, No. 3 Sunapee Lakers (16-3), face No. 5 Newmarket Mules (15-4), June 16, at 1 p.m., at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium, Manchester.

All four championship games will take place on Saturday, according to the local rec department announcement: “Last year it appeared that Sunapee had the most fans of the seven other schools that competed. Make plans to support the team. It would be nice to have 800 fans filling the stadium. See you there.”

The Lakers lineup: Noah Skarin, Brian Brewster, Troy Fowler, Brett Simpson, TJ Walcholtz, Jack Weinberger, Ben Robinson, Matt McAlister, Nick Skarin, Matt Coughlin, Bryson Deschamps, Rob Strachan, Mike Platt and Cole Cruz.

‘I think the game will come down to who makes the least mistakes,’ said Lakers coach Tom Frederick. Teams must capitalize on opponent miscues and minimize the impact of its own errors. ‘You know they are going to happen, that’s how the baseball gods work.’ — Reports Eric Emmerling, NHIAA baseball tournament: Can aces trump hitters?
