MS baseball team gets a win

WAITSBURG-The Waitsburg middle school boys baseball team defeated Touchet 10-1 in Waitsburg on April 26.

Trace Nesje pitched three innings for the Cardinals, recording several strikeouts with Isaac Mahre as catcher. Then Mahre pitched relief, and Nesje moved to the catcher.

The Cardinals had strong fielding against a young Touchet team. Both teams played hard and enjoyed a beautiful afternoon game.

Cardinal hitters: Rollin Carpenter, Nesje, Mahre, Landon Henry, JJ Gleason, Griffen Hinchliffe.

In the season's first game, the Cardinals lost at Desales on April 24.

Baseball Team Suffers Losses

DW COMBINE-The Dayton-Waitsburg baseball team suffered losses in two doubleheaders last week. The Wolfpack struggled to get hits and committed too many fielding errors in the games.

On Tuesday, April 25, Colfax defeated DW 13-0 and 22-0. Klint Kuykendall had the only hits for the Wolfpack. He connected for one hit in the first game and had two hits in the second.

The River View Panthers pitched a no-hitter in both doubleheader games on Friday, April 28.  The Panthers won 17-1 and 16-0.

Golf Team Competes at Sub-Districts

The Dayton-Waitsburg high school golf team competed in the sub-district tournament on Monday, May 1, at Veterans Memorial in Walla Walla.

The top half of the field will play in the district tournament next week.

Coach McGhan said, "Though we did not send any golfers on to the district tournament, I was proud of the way they all competed. During the regular season, we have the kids pick up their ball once their score hits double par on each hole. This saves time and relieves some of the pressure on inexperienced golfers. Today was their true score, so the scores may seem inflated."

On the 18-hole par 72 course, Cayle Davis shot a 114, Carson Potter shot 121, and William Daves shot 162 in the boys' competition.

For the girls, Abbi Paolino shot a 144, Opal Hair-Morin shot 153, and Sarah Daves shot a 154.

McGhan noted that Davis was only eight strokes over the cut, Potter shot a consistent round, and W. Daves worked on his swing. Paolino made some excellent shots, S. Daves' game was steady, and Hair-Morin played tough.
