Last Wednesday, Oak Forest Academy baseball advanced to the final round of the MAIS AAAA Div. 2 postseason tournament by defeating Pillow Academy in a best two-out-of-three series in the semifinals.
The Jackets took care of business on the road on May 8, coming away with a 4-1 win on the road. Hayden Dupuy pitched the entire game and threw for three strikeouts while allowing five hits. The Jackets made all of their offensive production happen early, kick-started by Jude Giardina hitting a line drive into left field for a double in the first inning.
