On October 5th, 2022 a ceremony was held in front of the science building. This ceremony was held because last year’s varsity baseball team won the Division 3 Sections. Graduated and returning players all came together and received their rings for their win. This was Coach Dawidiczik’s second section win, his first was in 2018. Below are some thoughts from players who graduated, and those who returned to Del Campo this year. Including Thomas Martinez and Jordan Jacobson, who graduated in 2022 and class of 2023 players Matt Moses, Robbie Perry, Ryan Durkee.

“Definitely feels good, I mean this was a big family, and it’s nice to have everyone back” -Robbie Perry

“This was a seasonal thing, it started in the fall. I had to earn everyone’s trust and hit off with them”-Ryan Durkee

What do you think you need to do to repeat last year’s success?
