On Friday, May 19th, the Knights closed out the regular season during their annual community night with a 6-5 extra inning win over Hatboro-Horsham.
The Knights finish with a regular season record of 17-3 and were 9-3 in conference.
The Knights rebounded from last week’s first loss of the season with a 7-3 victory over conference rival CB South. Danny Kirwin pitched a strong 6+ innings while the offense output was led by the top of the Knight’s order – Zach Miles (2-4, 2RBI) and Tyler Siddal (2-3, 2RBI). North Penn is now 9-1 overall and 4-1 in conference.
In a JV tilt, the Knights lost a battle with CB South, 6-5. After being down by six to start the 6th inning, the JV squad fought back but came up just short.
Over the last week, the Knights suffered their first loss (a 10-inning battle with Souderton) leaving their record at 8-1; 3-1 in conference. The JV squad was 2-2 for the week.
The highlight of the week, however, was our annual Autism Awareness Game where North Penn’s Ben Hartranft sang the National Anthem and threw out the first pitch. Ben was also featured on Fox29 – http://www.fox29.com/news/249843259-story. It’s great to be a Knight!
