EAST BEND — The Forbush High School baseball team is looking to continue its dominating performances with another conference championship for the 2017 season. Last year, the Falcons were able to capture their first conference championship in several years. Along with the championship, the Falcons held on to a 19-9 overall record and a 9-1 conference record. Forbush made it to the second round of the NCHSAA 2A playoffs where they lost to East Rutherford, 4-3 in 10 innings.

This season is shaping up to be another successful baseball season for the Falcons. With the return of head coach Jack Moss, and several returning players, the Falcons are on the right track to continue their success. The first week of the season sees the Falcons on the road as they travel to West Forsyth on Tuesday (results were not available at press time), and Starmount on Friday. The next six games are at home for the Falcons, then they are back on the road with an away game at North Forsyth. Senior night is scheduled for April 28. Game times and locations are subject to change.
