Both seniors are happy to get “the paperwork” behind them, so they can focus on the next task at hand while still wearing Roo blue.
“We got to the playoffs the past couple of years, but did not get deep into the brackets,” Healy said. “Getting to the state playoffs is something that would be very special.
“There are only four, out of all those playoffs teams, who make it to the state tournament. That is something we would all like to experience.”
Healy hopes the work he has put in will also help him realize some other goals.
“Last year, [WHS grad]Dustin Williams broke a school record, hitting .560,” he said. “I would love to get off to a good start and shoot for that goal.”
Healy’s junior-year numbers are already pretty lofty. He hit .400 last season and led the Roos in runs batted in, with 43.
