John D'Abruzzo profiles Quigley baseball players Matt Evans and Jake Schwab.
"Despite failing to qualify for the WPIAL playoffs, this spring wasn't a total bust for the Quigley Catholic High School baseball team.
The Spartans (5-8, 5-5) completed their regular-season schedule with a strong finish, winning four of their last six games, which included three consecutive wins and victories against Section 3-A rivals Union and Rochester.
"It was really nice to get those wins," said senior middle infielder Jake Schwab, who lives in Conway. "It showed those teams and the other teams in our section that we can battle and that we're not a joke. We played well against those teams and rallied back in those wins against Rochester and Union.
"I think we surprised some teams this year. This program is turning around.""
