A handful of losses before the playoff cutoff date means the West Deptford High School baseball team faces an arduous route through the playoffs, with no shot at a home game at any point in the postseason.
The Eagles, the defending sectional champs, drew the No. 16 seed in Group 2 and will take on top seed GCIT in the opening round Monday. If the Eagles can pull off the upset, they’ll have to hop on the bus in each subsequent round.
Some familiar foes could lurk in the second and third round—Delran, who the Eagles beat on the road in the playoffs last year, could be a second-round opponent, and No. 4 Haddonfield looks like a lock to be around in the semifinals, should the Eagles manage a pair of wins.
