Repeat the fun?

Georgetown coach prefers smiles over championships

(Continued)

“You can’t really say we’ve changed because we don’t have the same kids, and that’s what I tell (the team),” said Spurr. “We can make history going back-to-back, (but) some teams win back-to-back, some teams don’t. It is what it is. It’s baseball.”

“For me, I want to do as well as last year,” said Ingraham. “I think we have the talent to do as well as last year. We have the incentive to do so.”

That confidence is what Spurr likes to see in his players heading into a long season.

“The kids are phenomenal, I have great kids,” said Spurr. “They have great attitudes, and it’s just really good. But, more importantly, they’ve always had the hunger. They’re ready. Some of them started hitting in December.”

Spurr also says that the Rockport games will be big for the Royals after losing both Cape Ann League rivalry games last season.

“We didn’t have a chance to face them in the tournament,” Spurr said. “I would’ve liked to because I think we were stronger. Another one I’d really like to circle on the calendar is Lynnfield.”

But all that is in the future. The present begins when the Royals host North Shore Tech April 5. Ingraham is unsure of what the atmosphere will be like at the home-opener.

“I’m not really sure,” Ingraham said, “because Georgetown has never won a state championship, so I’m not sure what it will be like.”
