Mr. Fedinatz and Mr. Mallonee were joined by Josh F., Ben F., Zach and Caleb T., Ryan M, Delia O. and two new students Catherine C. and Ryan N. for a wonderful day at Nationals Park. The weather was perfect, especially after the stretch of brutal humidity and our seats in section 202 were in the shade the entire game. This was also Catherine’s first baseball game and hopefully not her last.
The ride to the ballpark was fun as the students and staff caught up on the happenings of the summer thus far. The actual game was even better. The Mets struck first with 3 in the top of the 4th which made Delia (our token Mets fan) very happy. The Nats responded with one in the bottom of the 4th and it looked like it was not the Nats day. This all changed in the bottom of the 8th when the Nationals’ bats came alive to score 3 runs and Drew Storen shut the door on the Mets in the top of the 9th which made Josh jump out of his seat with a round of high fives for all.
Our ride home was a hour-and-half journey mostly spent trying to get out of the parking lot. This did not dull our enthusiasm as the students and our intrepid driver, Mr. Mallonee, took it all in stride. It was great to catch up and meet our two new students who seemed like they have always been part of GWCS. We would like to thank the students for being so wonderful and representing the Coyote way in all their endeavors.
