EASTHAM — Nauset Regional High School’s baseball team finished its regular season with a perfect 12-0 record after a 5-1 victory over the Dennis-Yarmouth Dolphins on Monday.
The team captured the Cape & Islands League championship and will have home-field advantage heading into the Division 2 South Sectional tournament. Nauset is expected to play the first game of the tournament on either Friday or Saturday at Eldredge Park in Orleans.
The Warriors are currently ranked fifth in the state, according to maxpreps.com.
Senior Captains Kurt Thomas and Richie Corres said at the beginning of the season that the team’s goals were to win the league and win every game. Those goals were accomplished.
Notably, two of the team’s 12 wins came against a solid Barnstable Red Hawks baseball team.
“I’m really happy for the kids,” Head Coach Kevin Curtin said. “It’s a fantastic group of seniors, and I’m just really pleased with how they played.”
Defense and pitching carried the Warriors through the season. The team allowed just 35 runs through 12 games, an average of just under three runs per game.
“Our defense and pitching has been strong, and we’re going to rely on that in the tournament,” Curtin said.
