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.

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.

Cedar Springs JV Baseball

Last week’s doubleheader against the Newago Lions added two wins to the Cedar Springs JV baseball teams’ record after a loss to Kent City in the opening game of the season two weeks ago. The team’s pitching has given up only two walks so far this season, which is less than a walk per game. Sophomore Peyton Newman has pitched 9 innings over the first two weeks and has yet to surrender an earned run.

“Our pitching gives us a chance in every game by throwing strikes and making the other team earn it,” said Coach Tyson Hoffman.

Dylan Cudney, a sophomore, leads the team so far this season in RBIs with 7 for the books. The team’s bats were swinging both games with a 16-3 win the first game, and a 9-1 win the second game.

Next week’s battle will be home against the Lowell Red Arrows in another doubleheader Tuesday April 11.
