JV Baseball battles weather to complete games

Dylan Knauf got the win against the Red Arrows in game one of a doubleheader last week.

The JV baseball team was able to get two games in on April 11 before Mother Nature decided to play a joke on us with another touch of snow and ice over the weekend.

On Wednesday April 11, the Red Hawks played a double header against the undefeated Huskies of Forest Hills Northern. In the first game, Connor Ellison pitched a great game, striking out 3 and walking none. He allowed 6 hits over his six-inning outing. His defense didn’t help him much, committing 7 total errors. In the 10-3 loss, only 2 of the Forest Hills runs were earned.

At the plate, Trenton Snoeyink, Dylan Knauf, Lucas Secord, Jeremy Campione and Caden Vandenberg all recorded a hit. As a whole, the Red Hawks left a dozen runners on base and weren’t able to get hits when they needed them.  

In the second game, Kyle Wise struggled throwing strikes, walking 7 and hitting one batter, while allowing 6 runs. Colton Moore was able to hold the Huskies to just one run in his two innings of relief.  Offensively, the Red Hawks were able to draw several walks, which were brought around to score with hits from Connor Ellison, Lucas Secord and a big double from Caden Vandenberg. With aggressive baserunning and these timely hits the score was tied at 7-7 when the sun went down and the game was called due to darkness.  

Last week the JV baseball team played a three-day set against the Red Arrows of Lowell.  

On April 19, they played a doubleheader. In game one, the Red Hawks were led on the mound by Dylan Knauf. In six innings of work, he allowed 4 runs on just three hits, while walking one. Trenton Snoeyink pitched the seventh inning to earn his second save of the season in the 7-4 victory. 

At the plate, Jeremy Campione had a pair of hits. Dylan Greenland, Willy Zain, Trenton Snoeyink, Caden Vandenberg, Dylan Knauf and Gage Haywood each had a hit as well.

In game two, Sophomore Colton Moore struggled throwing strikes on the mound, and allowed 8 runs, though only 3 of them were earned. The defense also committed several errors that sunk a few innings. Dylan Knauf had two doulbles batting in the leadoff spot. Willy Zain had a pair of hits as well, one of them a double. Lucas Secord hit a double as well. Trenton Snoeyink and Clyde Dykhouse each added a hit. The game 2 final was 12-5.

In game three, on April 20, our boys ran into a tough pitcher from Lowell and were only able to scrape together one hit each from Willy Zain and Jeremy Campione. Defensively they committed six errors as a team in the 10-0 loss.

The JV team is 4-4-1 overall. This week they are scheduled to play a trio of games against Ottawa Hills and a double header against Fremont.
