Sedgwick Baseball – Team of the Month – Presented by Visit Wichita

By Matt Browning

The Sedgwick baseball team was chosen the Visit Wichita Team of the Month. The Cardinals swept a doubleheader at Moundridge (16-3, 16-3) on March 30 and defeated Bennington 15-0 on April 9.

“We returned some great young players from our 2019 state-qualifying team, so my outlook for this season was pretty optimistic,” Sedgwick coach Doug Mabry said. “Of course, everyone has questions about their team at the beginning of the season, even more so this year, after missing the entire 2020 season.  Most of our players are multi-sport athletes, and had successful football and basketball seasons, so there was reason to believe that we could compete at a high level on the baseball diamond as well.”

Senior Nolan Crumrine, who was an honorable mention all-state performer in 2019, leads Sedgwick and in the doubleheader against Moundridge, Crumrine went 3-4 with four walks, four runs and an RBI. He also was the starting pitcher in the first game and got the win.

While Crumrine is the ace of the Cardinals’ staff, Mabry likes the depth they have built.

“We have worked hard to build depth in our pitching staff,” Mabry said. “Clearly, Nolan is our veteran, but others have stepped up this year, despite their lack of experience on the mound.”

The Cardinals are the class of the Heart of America League and are poised to win their first league title since 2016.
