The JV baseball team lost to Calvin last night and their record now stands at 2 - 2. The Eagles started hot when they scored two runs in the top of the first inning. Hunter Babbitt got the offense started with a 2 out double and after Skylour Campbell took a base on balls, Derrick Phillips plated 2 runs with a double to the fence in left field. Unfortunately that was all the scoring the team would do on the night. The team had some defensive struggles, but Trent Herrington's diving catch in left field helped to lift the spirits of the team. After the game Brandon Coalter said, "They were good, but we didn't play our best. I can't wait for another chance to play this team."
The Varsity Baseball team picked up huge OK Silver victory last night over Calvin Christian 2-1. The eagles scored 2 runs in the 3rd inning and never gave it up to earn the win. In that inning, Kent City pounded out 5 hits with RBI Singles from Jake Krueger and Luke Scheuneman. Offensively the boys out hit Calvin 9-3, lead by Jake Krueger, Ben Cebelak, and Nick Alt with 2 hits apiece and Luke Scheuneman, KJ Herremans, and Jayson Ellicott each had a hit. Jake Krueger picked up the win on the mound, with great defense behind him, going a complete game striking out 6 and walking 4. The Eagles continue play this Saturday at home against Grant. Great job guys!!
