RALEIGH — Wakefield’s baseball team capitalized off Heritage’s mistakes to beat them 6-4 in the NAC 6 conference tournament championship Thursday, May 5.

Most of the Wolverines’ runs were scored off stolen bases and Husky errors. Wakefield took a 3-1 lead after the third inning. Heritage cut the deficit to 3-2 after the top of the fifth, but the Wolverines responded with two runs in the bottom of the inning.

The Huskies tried to make a comeback with two more runs in the top of the sixth, but Wakefield added one more run in the bottom of the inning to go up 6-4. Heritage couldn’t score in the top of the seventh to give the Wolverines the victory.

Although Heritage out-hit Wakefield 6-3 in the game, the Huskies also committed two errors that resulted in runs scored for the Wolverines.

Holden Cooper was the top player for Wakefield with one hit off a double and two runs. The sophomore also struck out three batters from the mound in two innings.

Wakefield finished the regular season second in the NAC 6 conference behind Wake Forest, who lost to Heritage in the conference tournament semifinals. This is the Wolverines’ first conference tournament championship in school history.
