Broadwater’s bat continued to struggle at home as the team was shut out in back-to-back games, recording only one hit. Alex Brown hit the lone single in the game against Greenbrier.

It’s been tough sledding for the Vikings who have faced off against Atlantic Shores Christian twice this season and once against Greenbrier Christian. Greenbrier and Atlantic Shores are both top-five teams in the VISAA Division II rankings, with Greenbrier holding the second spot and Atlantic Shores in fourth.

Despite the bad losses, the strength of the Vikings’ schedule has Broadwater ranked in the top 10 as it looks to play the first team in its division this weekend. The first game against a Division III team will not be easy as the Vikings travel to Williamsburg Saturday, May 1. There they’ll play Walsingham Academy, the No. 1-ranked team in the division.

(Scores – 4/23/21: Gators 16, Vikings 0; 4/26/21: Seahawks 17, Vikings 0)
