Hanover knocks off top seeds on way to coach pitch title

Team falls in first championship game 16-7, but wins second and final championship game 9-2 to claim championship 

BY DAN THALMANN

It took Hanover Blue two games to claim the girls coach pitch softball championship on their home field on July 2 in Hanover.

Hanover faced off against Valley Heights Purple in the championship game. Hanover was the #4 seed coming into the tourney and was able to knock off #1 seed Clifton and #2 seed Valley Heights Purple above them to make it to the championship game. Valley Heights then made it through the consolation bracket to meet up with Hanover again in the championship game.

In the first game, Valley Heights got off to a 9-4 start after two innings, but then Hanover’s defense held them to no runs in a 1-2-3 out third inning culminating in the catcher Bailey Holle making that third out on a pop-up. Then Hanover put up two of their own to tighten the lead to 9-6.

Washington peewees claim third at state

BY DAN THALMANN

It took Washington an inning and a half to build the lead they needed to take third place over the Beloit Marauders at the Peewee baseball state tournament on Friday in Belleville. Washington was a #1 seed and got to the game by beating the Concordia Lions 4-1, but then falling to the Smith Center Chiefs 9-7 in the semifinals. Smith Center would go on to win the championship over Waconda, 4-3 in 8 innings.

Both teams stranded one runner on base in the first inning and in the top of the second, Washington pitcher Will Otott struck out the first batter and then gave up a hit. But his defense was strong behind him and tallied a double play against the next Beloit batter for a quick second and third out.

Washington 1 claims T-ball championship, undefeated season at 14-0

BY DAN THALMANN Publisher

In many T-ball games, with fundamental skills still at their very novice level, one of the tricks in winning is to hold the opposing team to less than the six runs per inning max. In some games, that might not happen often, with teams unable to get three outs and trading the six run limit back and forth. In last Monday’s girls T-ball championship game in Hanover, both Hanover Red and Washington 1 only maxed out the run rule in one inning each. Hanover was the #2 seed coming into the game and got blanked by the defense of #1 seed Washington to start the game.

Shelby Ohlde signs with Cloud County volleyball

BY MARCIA HUBBARD

Back in December, when Deb Monzon reassumed the reigns of the Cloud County Community College volleyball program, she and assistant coach Kayla Garst went right to work replenishing a T-Birds’ roster that was set to graduate seven players off the 2017-18 squad.

With a clear goal in mind, Monzon said she believes the T-Birds put together a 2018 recruiting class that should complement Cloud County’s returners and be impact players when the season gets underway in August.
