They started in winter workouts with a pre-season team retreat.
They did the Stations of the Cross workout every week during Lent, even inviting other school programs to join them.
Coach started off every practice and game with the Virtue of the Week, prayer intentions from the players and an intentional focus on how to live that virtue on and off the baseball field that day.
Over the course of the season they also had a father-son jersey ceremony and a letters to Mom ceremony.
Mrs Kelly Wilkinson, Mom of a pitcher on the team said, "Our son has played on so many different teams over the years but we've never been a part of a team that had so much of an intentional focus on virtue and being a leader off the field. There was so much unity and camaraderie amongst the players and the parents. It was just such a joy to be a part of it. Of course, winning the State Championship was icing on the cake."
Parker Graf, a Junior on the team, shared, "Virtue was such a big part of everything we did every day. The season became more about being a great man, than being a great baseball player. The Stations of the Cross workouts were rough. I had never done anything like those before, but I are to love them because I knew they were bringing us closer together as a team and to our Lord Jesus Christ who died for us on the Cross and we take that for granted so often."
