West Brunswick baseball’s second half hot streak took the team to the second round of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association 3A playoffs, but it ended in Greenville on May 12 against J.H. Rose, 4-2.

“There’s really not much to say, I just tell them to hug on each other, love on each other. When you play high school ball it’s the last time at the end of the season that same group is going to be together. You will have some of the same guys back, but you don’t ever have that whole group back. You lose the seniors. It’s a tough moment for them and I try to tell them when that realization comes that the season is over and high school is over like a snap of a finger, you know, it’s hard to put that into words and it’s hard to console somebody. You just have to try your best,” West Brunswick head baseball coach Greg Wrape said after the game.
