Gage Raudenbush, Lane Moser, Mark Knepler, Chris Bush, Michael Gartin and Jaxon Helm have each played in all 32 of the team's games. At times, players have had to simply tough out a nagging discomfort.
“We've just been tough,” Webber's Zane Austin said. “If anyone got a nick or a bruise, they just play through it. (They) just want to keep fighting, can't let it drag them down.”
Webber faces New Athens in the 1A state semifinal at 10 a.m. today in Peoria.
Austin's thoughts around game time won't drift toward the number of players on his team. His focus will be specific and simple
“We're here. Let's play baseball,” Austin said.
