Baseball finishes fourth in conference

Last Tuesday the Cedar Springs Red Hawks varsity baseball team played their final home game. The Eagles of Muskegon Oakridge came to town to play a single game.  Both teams were using this contest as a tune-up in preparation for their upcoming district weekend.  Cedar Springs won 3-0 in a game in which Coach Glyshaw used seven different pitchers.  

Dylan Knauf threw the 1st inning, followed by Trenton Snoeyink, Walker Glyshaw, Cayden Steinebach, Willy Zain, Jeremy Campione and, finally, Jake Rocafort.  Steinebach earned the victory and Rocafort got the save. The Eagles managed only two hits in the game. The Red Hawks had only 3. Knauf had a pair of singles and sophomore Clay Oosting drove a single up the middle. Knauf scored the game’s first run by stealing home. Dylan Greenland was driven in by Steinebach in the 4th and Oosting in the 6th. This game represented the end of the regular season. The boys finished with a record of 19-15.

On Saturday, the Red Hawks visited Rockford to take on the state-ranked Rams. Having been the most consistent pitcher during the regular season, senior Dylan Knauf got the start on the mound. The game began with a bang as the Red Hawks scored 2 in the first inning, getting hits from Knauf, Greenland, Snoeyink and Zain. Petty added a hit in the 2nd inning. Trenton Snoeyink came on in relief in the 4th inning, but defensive errors allowed the Rams to score at will. The final score ended up 14-2, with only 4 of Rockford’s runs being earned. It was a disappointing end to the season, but one in which Cedar Springs proved they could win against anyone if they played error-free baseball.  

They finished 4th in the OK Gold Conference.  All Conference honors went to Dylan Knauf (pitcher), Dylan Greenland (catcher), Trenton Snoeyink (outfield) and Honorable Mention to Aiden Brunin (utility). All District honors went to Dylan Knauf (pitcher).  All Academic honors went to Cayden Steinebach and Bryce Marvel.
