The Russell-Victoria Bronco baseball team ran into a tough opponent for their Senior Recognition Day doubleheader Tuesday at the Shaffer Sports Complex in Russell.

Sedgwick made quick work of the home team by sweeping the twin bill 15-0 in four innings in Game 1, while Game 2 went to Sedgewick 14-0 in six innings. In the nightcap, Sedgwick pitcher Austin Harjo needed just 69 pitches to toss a perfect game. Braydon Gibson and Aiden Rohr took the decisions on the losing side for Russell-Victoria.

During a postgame ceremony after Game 2, seniors Tayden Bilbrey, Brayden Ford, Braydon Gibson, Andrew Kraus, Hayden Logsdon, Kaden Rome, Briar Ulrich and Connor Weihe were honored along with their parents.

Russell-Victoria (6-8) hits the road Friday, May 7 when they travel to Gypsum to face Southeast of Saline for a doubleheader. First pitch for Game 1 is at 4 PM.
