On Monday, May 9 Valley R-VI recognized our senior baseball athletes. These athletes have shown dedication and hard work over the past four years of high school baseball. Each athlete has displayed leadership, hard work, and determination both on and off the field. Being a student athlete can be tough, but these young athletes have handled it with ease. Good luck to all of our student athletes. We wish you nothing but the best in your future endeavors, and thank you for everything you have done.

Thank you to the coaches and parents for their dedication to these athletes. Without you, none of this would be possible.

A special thank you to Coach Blake Jones and Mineral Area College (MAC) for allowing us to host our senior night game at MAC.
