Velva Post 39 Is Rolling This Year

Posted: Updated:
The Velva Legion baseball team definitely has a sense of confidence. They're sound in all areas of the game and don't make many mistakes.

The 39'ers use the ending to the high school's season to motivate them. Velva was one win away from State, but fell to Bishop Ryan ending their great run. They've shaken off that loss for the Legion season and have started out of the gate well, posting a 12-2 record. These players don't have one set position and that has worked to their advantage.

"The versatility is a plus because it allows us to move people around when needed. We've dealt with some injuries and some vacations and some football camps and everything else but we're still able to compete at a high level just by shifting bodies around. We don't seem to be hurt by it too much," says Velva assistant coach Brent Engebretson.

"We're just hitting bats, making plays, doing the little things right. We're getting heads into the game. We just keep playing and there's not much else you can do about that," says Michael Thingstad.

Thingstad is battling a wrist injury but this long layoff should help him recover.

Velva doesn't play again until next Tuesday against Burlington.
