Last week Tuesday, the Red Hawk varsity baseball team traveled to Grand Rapids to begin a three-game series against the Bengals of Ottawa Hills. In game, 1 Dylan Knauf and Cayden Steinebach shared the pitching duties, throwing a one-hitter.  At the plate, the Red Hawks totaled 18 hits in the first game, led by Zain and Rocafort with 3 each; Glyshaw, Greenland, Mullins, Menefee, and Snoeyink with 2 each; along with one hit from both Campione and Rypma. The final score of the first game was 16-0.

In game 2 Trenton Snoeyink, Logan Petty and Caleb Menefee worked together on the mound to throw a 2-hit shutout.  In this game the Red Hawks totaled 13 hits on their way to a 21-0 victory.  Logan Petty led the team with 3 hits.  Snoeyink, Steinebach, Rocafort and Brunin each had two hits.  Campione and Rypma again added one hit apiece.  

On Wednesday, Aiden Brunin took the mound as the Red Hawks played the 3rd game of a three game set at home vs Thornapple-Kellogg. The series was tied 1-1 and had been rescheduled due to poor weather a few weeks earlier.  Though TK was able to score 2 runs early, Aiden pitched 6 solid innings striking out 10 and walking only 2.  It took a few innings for the bats to come alive for the Red Hawks but, when they did, runs were scored in bunches.  Brunin and Willy Zain each had a pair of hits.  Logan Petty added a 2 RBI double and singles were hit by Glyshaw, Rocafort, Campione, Snoeyink, Knauf and Greenland.  Trenton Snoeyink closed out the final inning to get Cedar the 7.2 victory.

On Thursday the Red Hawks wrapped up their three-game set with Ottawa Hills as the Bengals traveled north to Cedar Springs. Freshman Walker Glyshaw started on the mound. He got in one inning of work, as did Dylan Greenland. Caleb Menefee came in to hurl the final 3 innings of the game. The Hawks totaled 12 hits in the game, led by seniors Willy Zain and Logan Petty with 3 each. Jeremy Campione and Nate Mullins each had 2, while Cayden Steinebach and Isaac Rypma each added one. The final score was 16-4.

On Friday the boys headed south to play the Northview Wildcats. Senior Dylan Knauf took the mound for the Red Hawks. He managed to control the tempo of the game, only walking one batter and striking out 2 in a complete game performance. Jeremy Campione led the team at the plate with three hits, followed by 2 for Snoeyink, Greenland and Glyshaw. Singles were added by Brunin, Petty and Zain as the Red Hawks outhit the Wildcats 12 to 8 in their 6-4 victory.  

This made the Red Hawks a perfect 5-0 on the week, bringing their record to 15-14. This week they will be wrapping up the regular season with a single at Big Rapids and a 3-game set against Kenowa Hills.

Districts will be June 5 in Rockford.  Cedar Springs will face off against the Rams at 10 am.
