VIDEO: Wayne Sankey 400 Wins
Interview with Pacelli Catholic High School baseball head coach Wayne Sankey, one day after he recorded his 400th career victory at Pacelli with a 15-0 win in five innings at Wisconsin Rapids Assumption Tuesday, May 21.
The Cardinals scored four runs in the top of the first inning against Assumption, then added two runs in the second inning and three in the third to build a 9-0 lead, before they pushed across six more runs in the top of the fifth inning to provide the final margin.
Freshman Drew Kedrowicz tossed a one-hit shutout, as he struck out six and walked two over five innings, while senior Nate Helms had two runs scored and two RBI, senior Zach Zimmerman scored three runs, and sophomore Kaydin Mayek and freshman Jacob Firkus each scored two runs.
The win improved Sankey’s career record to 400-126 during his 21 seasons as a high school baseball head coach, all at Pacelli.
The third-seeded Cardinals (18-7) are set to open the postseason against sixth-seeded Tomahawk in a WIAA Division 3 Regional Quarterfinal at Bukolt Park Thursday, May 23, with the winner to play either second-seeded Stratford or seventh-seeded Nekoosa in a Regional Semifinal Tuesday, May 28.
