North Warren savors moment of glory in dramatic upset win

He said this spirit bodes well for next year's prospects. The 2011 team will include a seasoned pitching staff, led by Junior Greg Dower who possesses his share of throwing tricks.

"Greg throws a lot of junk, and he's had several wins this year," Humiston said. And Dower will be accompanied by his teammate Higgins, who May 12 did what no one thought could happen - contain Lake George and secure a victory.

"Our team proved they'll will fight to the end of a season no matter what," Humiston said. "This was a big win for our program - and moving forward, we'll be trying to build on this."

Higgins said he enjoyed the David-and-Goliath experience.

"When we were tied 5-5, it pumped us all up," he said. "It definitely felt good for us as underdogs- last in the league - to come out on top and beat the champions."
