EVART – Nolan Theunick ended his sports career on a high note for Evart’s baseball team.

The Evart senior completed his second varsity season with the Wildcats. Last year was a dandy with the Wildcats being 29-9 and district and regional champions.

“I did pretty good last year,” he said. “I’ve been improving on my baserunning and hitting.”

Theunick was an outfielder for coach Josh Johnson’s Wildcats and played all three spots. He threw a baserunner out at home.

“I remember that play,” Johnson said. “It was a nice play. The throw went straight through to home.”

Theunick also batted .385.

“I’ve been positioning my hits a lot better than last year,” Theunick said.

Evart finished below .500.

“At the beginning of the year, we didn’t really work as a team,” Theunick said. “It was kind of as inidividuals. Throughout the year we got a lot closer.”

It was a rebuilding season of sorts.

“A majority of our top players graduated from last year,” Theunick said.

His only high school sport is baseball.

“I like it because it’s warmer,” Theunick said.

Such was the case in May but obviously not in April.
