JV Baseball opens season with wins

Sophomore pitchers Connor Ellison and Kyle Wise both pitched winning games for the JV Red Hawks last week.

Under new coaches Justin Glyshaw and Matt Greenland, the Cedar Springs Boys JV baseball team is off to a 2-1 start.  

They opened their season last Thursday, March 22, at home by taking two games from rival Tri County. Connor Ellison got the win in the first game. He pitched a complete game, striking out 5 and walking only 2. In the 12-5 victory, the Red Hawks were led at the plate by Jeremy Campioine, who had 2 hits and 3 RBI. The frigid temperatures led to several Tri County errors and our Hawks were able to play aggressively and get the win.

In game two, sophomore Kyle Wise took the mound in the 3-inning shortened game as the Red Hawks rolled to a 15-0 victory. Caden Markey-Vandenberg led the team with 2 hits, while Jeremy Campione, Dylan Knauf and Clyde Dykhouse each added a hit. The boys played with a great deal of energy, despite the weather.

On Friday, freshman Dylan Knauf got the start on the mound against Sparta.  They managed to score 6 runs in the first inning. The Red Hawks fought back, closing the gap, but were unable to overtake the Spartans, losing 8-4. Colton Moore saw some time on the mound, while leading the team with two hits. Trenton Snoeyink came in to close out the game, also adding two hits himself. Jerome Patin, Jeremy Campione, Caden Vandenberg, Willy Zain, Clyde Dykhouse and Dylan Greenland each had hits as well. Overall, the Red Hawks hit the ball well, but just weren’t able to bring base runners around to score.  

This week the JV home game against Forest Hills Eastern on Tuesday was cancelled, but they did play Newaygo at home on Wednesday. Watch for those results next week!
