INDIAN RIVER – The Inland Lakes baseball team has secured the conference championship for the first time in 20 years.
Coach Josh Vieau said the last time the team won the conference title in 2002, he was a senior on the team.
“The key to success honestly has been pitching,” Vieau said of this year’s squad. “I mean, we’re so deep, our pitching staff is deep. We’ve got five guys that I feel like we can throw out there at any time, from the top to the bottom.”
The Bulldogs are 21-6 this season and are ranked seventh in Division 4 in the latest MHSBCA poll. The Bulldogs now turn their attention to winning the district title for the first time since 2019.
“We’re really hitting our stride right now,” Vieau said. “We feel confident with this crew.”
The final game of the regular season for the Bulldogs is next Tuesday against Central Lake.
They will play Alanson in the first round of districts on June 3rd.
