JV Baseball

Last week was a good week for the JV Red Hawks baseball team. They went 2-2 for the week and won the conference series against Greenville. They were only a couple of plays away from being 4-0.

Coach Tyson Hoffman said, “Typically in baseball average is about .500 baseball. We hit that this week, but were right on the cusp of being above average. The difference is just a couple plays that we need to make.”

The week ended with a 4-2 loss against Grant. Tuesday’s games against Greenville were wins, 11-3 and 9-4. Thursday, April 20, they lost to Greenville 5-4.

“After the game against Grant, we really improved our base running, had timely hitting, and made the plays we needed to make,” said Hoffman. “We were evenly matched with Greenville and it took the little things to get the series win.”

Logan Kobayashi had a good week calling games behind the plate and showed great base running instincts.

This week’s games will be against Grand Rapids Ottawa Hills.

JV Baseball

The JV Red Hawks baseball team lost a three-game series against the Lowell Red Arrows last week. The games were led by the bats of Seth Biggs and Peyton Newman, who both provided timely hitting and good base running.

Coach Tyson Hoffman said, “Lowell was a good team, with very disciplined and well coached athletes. We were able to stick with them for a lot of the game and made some good plays, but also showed our youth. We have to work on our fundamentals to get to their level.” Tuesday’s double headers ended with a loss of 12-4 and 5-4. Thursday’s loss was 12-3.

Last Friday’s battle against North Muskegon proved a win. The team was able to grind out at bats driving the starting pitchers count up to 91 in four innings. Peyton Newman was starting pitcher for Cedar Springs, who held the Norsemen at bay for the first four innings. Jerome Patin provided just over two innings of relief for the save, while Lucas Secord made multiple catches in the outfield, showing very good range for the position. The final score was 11-8.

The Red Hawks play against Grant, Greenville, and Holland West Ottawa this week.
