Many teams haven’t even started their spring season, but the last two ball squads left standing last year are already off to great starts. Chatfield’s teams are a combined 5-0. Brian Baum’s baseballers first downed St. Charles. A five-run third propelled them to a 5-2 victory. Tristan Aguiar (2-3, 2B, R, RBI), Ethan Woltz (1-2, 2B, R, 4 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 4 K, 4 BB, Win), Payton Lund (1-3, 2 RBI), and Carter Duxbury (1-3, RBI, R) led the charge. Meanwhile, the girls built a 12-4 lead after five. They downed the Saints 14-7. Megan LaPlante’s bat was the hottest (4-5, 3B, 2 RBI, 2 R). Maddy Larrabee (2-4, 2 R), Sydney Gould (2-3, RBI, 2 R), Kyra Dokken (2-4, 3B, RBI, R), Kailee Bernard (2-4, RBI, R), and Brook Irish (2-5, RBI) also had multiple hits. Seventh grader Alexis Chase grabbed the win (7 IP, 9 H, 6 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 2 K). The baseball team then handled GMLOK 19-4 in five innings. Drew Hurley’s bat authored the biggest firework, an inside-the-park grand slam in Chatfield’s 11-run third inning. He finished 2-3 (4 RBI, 3 R). Duxbury (3-3, 3B, 2 RBI, 3 R) was perfect at the plate. Aguiar (2-3, 3 RBI, R, Win), Riley Ahern (2-3, 2 R, 2 RBI), and T.J. Moechnig (2-3, 2 R RBI) also had multiple hits. Reece Eickhoff (1-2, BB, RBI, R) and Quinn Larson (1-3, 2B, RBI, R, Loss) did damage for GMLOK. The Gophers squads’ then did battle with PEM. On the softball diamond, the other Bulldogs jumped out 3-0 after a half-inning. Four straight hits in the third from Larrabee, LaPlante, Kirsten Keefe, and Irish helped plate four Gopher runs. Chatfield led 7-3 entering the sixth, only for PEM to plate three unearned runs. The Gophers got out of a bases loaded jam and picked up the 7-6 win. Larrabee (3-4, RBI, R), Dokken (2-3, 3B, RBI, R, SB), and LaPlante (1-4, 2B, 2 RBI) did the biggest damage. Chase (7 IP, 10 H, 6 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 6 K) picked up the win (2-0). The Lady Gophers are off to a 2-0 start to the season. Meanwhile, the baseball team fell behind PEM 2-0. In the fourth, six straight Gopher hitters reached to start the inning. Chatfield put a six-spot on the board. They cruised to an 8-2 victory. Aguiar (3-3, 2 R) and Woltz (2-2, 2 R) each went perfect at the plate. Lund (1-2, 3 RBI, R), Ahern (2-3, 2 RBI, 2 R), and Aaron Paulson (1-2, 2B, 2 RBI, R) drove in the runs. The latter (5 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 1 K, 2 BB) collected the win. The defending Section Champions are off to a 3-0 start to the season.
