Meridian baseball earns 6-3 victory at Cascade

The Meridian baseball team earned a 6-3 nonleague victory Thursday, April 7, at Cascade High School in Leavenworth.

At the plate, Dakota Jones was 2 for 3, Quinn Swanson was 1 for 2, Simon Burkett was 2 for 3 and Tyler Linderman was 1 for 4.

Trojans coach Steve Slesk said he was happy with the win despite a couple hiccups.
