BETHESDA — It had been 29 years since B-CC last advanced to the state semifinals. This season, the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Barons won two playoff games on walk-off hits, and finally once again reached the state semifinals.
However, at Shirley Povich Field on Wednesday the magical run ended, as the Barons fell to the Howard Lions of Howard County, 5-3.
“The character of the guys,” Barons head coach John Schmidt said on what he took away from this season. “Say what you want about talent; I remember how you take care of yourself on the field. Even in a win or a loss, I thought we carried ourselves very well.”
