25-win season falls short of LT's lofty expectation
BURBANK – For all the recent success Lyons Township baseball has had, expectations have gone up with that.
LT’s season ended on May 29 with a 25-11 record after a 5-3 loss to Mt. Carmel in a Class 4A Reavis sectional final. What would be unquestionably a successful season for most teams may not feel the same for a team that has made the state final the past two springs and entered the season as summer state champs.
“The expectations are sometimes unrealistically high,” said LT coach George Ushela. “I felt realistically we had the firepower and the pitching to get there and Mt. Carmel is a very good team and played exceptionally well on defense last Wednesday against us. They made four or five very exceptional defensive plays that thwarted us attaining a bigger lead or even coming back and they had timely hitting off of Keith Lehmann.”
