(LEWES, Del.) - The Cape Vikings baseball team has racked up ten wins so far this year. They have achieved this with production from some of their best players.

The Vikings have 13 upperclassmen on the team.

"The team lost four early games, but they have recovered from it," said infielder and pitcher David Erickson. "We have worked really hard together to overcome a lot of obstacles, as a team, that could have held us back. I think as a team we are on an incline," said Erickson.

Erickson said one of the team's strengths is the squad's pitching. In the last several games, the Junior has been on the mound and has been effective.

He is using his fastball to get out the batters.

"When I am on the mound I plan to throw strikes. I know my teammates will have my back and I am really not worried about that at all," said Erickson. "My job is to throw strikes and that is what I strive for."

Junior Zack Gelof said the team is striving to get back to Frawley Stadium in Wilmington and bring back a state championship.

If the Vikings reach Frawley Stadium, it will be the third consecutive year. Last year they lost to St. Marks 12 to 4 in the Quarterfinals of the DIAA Tourney.

The Vikings will wrap up the season on Saturday against St. Marks.
