It took longer than many wanted it to, however baseball has finally returned to Gunnison High School (GHS). On Thursday, the Cowboys took on Delta High School in a scrimmage in front of fans, for what was an action packed game — after both teams knocked off the rust. GHS played their best baseball in the fourth inning, as Sam Buckhanan made quick work of the Panthers on the mound, which led to the Cowboy bats waking up in the bottom half of the inning. Matt Solanik, Skylor Wild, Nico Marchitelli, Jackson Smith and Buckhanan each reached based during the inning — with Solanik, Wild and Marchitelli coming around to score before the inning was over. GHS will be back on the diamond, Friday, July 17, as they travel to Delta to take on Buena Vista and Salida.
