BREWSTER – The Brewster High School baseball team entered postseason as the No. 2 seed from the Caribou Trail League after tying with Cashmere.

The Bears wrapped up the regular season by blasting Tonasket, 17-2 and 10-0, on senior night last Saturday.

“Senior day is always kind of rough, you never know if kids are going to come out and be focused or if they’ll be distracted by all the happenings,” Brewster coach Todd Phillips said. “It’s also tough for someone like me because I have known all of these kids since they were little boys.”

Brewster seniors include Easton Driessen, Adrian Urias, Cameron Jacobson and Hunter Riggan.

“Easton was the bat boy when we won state in 2001,” Phillips said. “I have his autograph in his little 5-year-old script on a ball from that game. Adrian is my best friend’s cousin and he’s always been around.”
