Around the diamonds

Posted in All Sports

More spring sports, more diamond festivities! FC/L baseball ended a 6-game slide. Versus R-P, they began with six straight hits, five runs. After a Trojan comeback (5-4) Dan Gatzke (2-4, 2 RBI) capped the evening with a solo HR as the Falcons held off R-P 6-4. Nick Powell (2-4, 2 RBI’s) and Nick Ebner (7 H, 4 R, first 3 innings, 0 H, 1 BB, 0 R, last four, Win) aided the FC/L cause. Dalton Bellock was 2-3 (RBI) for R-P.

The Falcons then amassed their first winning-streak of the season versus D-E. A Gatske single in the bottom of the 7th plated Jake Ristau (doubled) for the 7-6 walk-off win. Tyler Eickhoff (3-4, 3B, 3 R, 2 RBI; pitched final 2 2/3 with 0 H, 5 K’s) was quite busy, quite effective.

In Chatfield, there was good and bad news. The good: courtesy of a GMLOK double-dip sweep of Southland, the softball team won the 3-Rivers-South. They celebrated by defeating 11-win 1-loss SG-C 7-5, overcoming an early 4-0 deficit. Their 8th straight “W,” they moved their streak to 10 before losing (read further).

The bad news: the baseball team dropped out of a 1st place tie due to a 0-3 week. On the softball diamond, GMLOK’s Stephanie Russell was red hot over a four-game span (PEM, SouthlandX2, M-C); 10-14, 2 HR’s, 3B, 6 2B’s, 14 RBI! She cooled against FC/L. The Falcons took game one 4-3. Alex Peterson won it in the bottom of the 7th with an RBI single, plating Taylor Case (2-3, 2B, SB, R). Morgan Malley (3 SB, 2 R) got the win, striking out 14. Emily Schlitter was 2-4 (3B, 2 R) for GMLOK.

In game two, GMLOK rolled to a 10-0, 6 inning, victory. Russell and Schlitter combined for a 3-hitter. Brittany Erding (CF) robbed a pair of extra base hits in the 1st inning, and then went 2-4 (2 R, SB). Five FC/L errors aided the ‘Dog cause.

Gopher Girls Highlight True Team Meet

“David versus Goliath” is how Chatfield girl’s track coach Chris Frye described his team at the Section 1A True Team Meet. With 16 girls, the Gophers had the smallest squad of the 16 participating schools. Champion Lake City had 64 athletes. And yet, finishing 2nd were the youthful Gophers (two seniors, one junior).

They did it with quality: 20 of their 28 finishes were in the top ten, in events typically 30 athletes deep. Maddy Kammer had a 1st (200), a 2nd (400) and a 3rd (High Jump). Kayla Woltz swept 1st in the distance runs, with Karen Gomez (4th 1,600, 2nd 3,200) closely b .....

Much to their Lemay

Mon, May 7th, 2012
Posted in All Sports

It’s only a coincidence “Lemay” is a combination of the words lament and dismay. It’s only a coincidence. For Fillmore Central/Lanesboro softball, Wabasha-Kellogg’s Sophie was a bringer of both words. W-K’s chief hurler shut down the FC/ .....
