On this Play of the Week, we got Waubonsie Valley baseball showing great defense. Presented by Trunnell Insurance.

The high school baseball season is here as Waubonsie Valley comes in with a 2-1-1 record after a recent loss to Oswego East and a tie with York. St. Charles East swings by for a visit as the Saints begin their 2023 season.

On a pitchout, catcher Tanner Atkins throws it towards second base and Owen Roberts dives for it to make the grab and nab Sam Frausto. What a sequence from the Warriors with a good throw by Tanner Atkins and an even better tag from Roberts.

The first game jitters were not a problem for Saint Charles, who picked up win number one after a 9-3 victory over the Warriors.
