    Despite an improvement from five wins to 14, the Williamstown baseball team wasn’t able to reach a goal they set at the beginning of the season: win a district game.

    The Demons’ season ended with a 5-0 loss to Simon Kenton in the district tournament on May 24.

    “If you can’t hit, you can’t win,” coach Aaron Biddle said. “It’s disappointing because the boys worked so hard in the off-season and during the season. It all builds up to that one night. But I’m proud of the boys and we’ve had a good season.”
