Primarily pitching out of the bullpen this season, St. Rita’s Jake Shepski first started a game May 17 against Mount Carmel.
With the season on the line, Shepski intends on making the most of each and every time he is handed the ball — whether he starts or relieves. The senior righty threw a gem Wednesday, tossing a complete game as St. Rita prevailed 2-0 over Lyons in a Class 4A Reavis Sectional semifinal.
“With the playoffs, you’re in it all the time [mentally],” Shepski said. “That mentality is always there, and you can’t let runners bother you. Once you’re playing for your team, you don’t have anything to worry about.”Lyons Township High School
