John earns first victory over QND as QHS coach

March 21, 2015 0 Comments

Not only was the Quincy High School baseball team’s 2-1 victory over Quincy Notre Dame its first since 2012, it was the first for Quincy coach Brigham John.

John, who’s entering his third season as the Blue Devils’ coach, hadn’t beaten the Raiders in his first six tries. Last season, QHS went 0-4 against QND and was outscored 39-7.

“These kids are excited to come out here and get game one,” John said. “And to get it against QND. It’s a big confidence booster.”

John enjoyed the victory over QND, but he has eyes on bigger targets.

“I care more about the Western Big Six more than anything,” John said. “But living in Quincy it’s always in the back of your mind. It’s never going to go away, but it’s just nice to go out and win.”
