Tigers salvage four-game split

By Steve Sell
February 07, 2016

WAXAHACHIE, Texas — Central Christian College’s baseball team came home from a four-game weekend set with Southwestern Assemblies of God University with a split.

A summary:

• Game 1 •

Central 5, SAGU 4 — The Tigers tied the game in the seventh with a run and pushed across another in the eighth for the win. Zane Howard and Kenny Cordova continued to be a two-man wrecking crew by going 3 for 4 as they were coming off a huge weekend to open the season. Two of Howard’s hits were doubles. Andrew Hightower pitched all eight innings and all four runs he allowed were unearned.

• Game 2 •

SAGU 6, Central 4 — The Tigers made things interesting with three runs in the final inning, but managed only two hits in the game. Howard drove in two Central runs. Doug Gove took the loss even though he fanned nine.

• Game 3 •

SAGU 9, Central 4 — Four runs in the fifth inning broke the game open for the Lions. Jaime Romeu had two hits and two RBIs for CCC. Nate Patterson also had two hits. Alan Barker took the loss.

• Game 4 •

Central 13, SAGU 10 — Both teams started to get short on pitching and the Tigers pounded out nine runs in the first three innings to take control. Howard homered and singled, good for three RBIs. Graham Greenback had three hits and Clayton Cramer had two. Patterson drove in two runs. Keaton Snyder battled through 14 hits and 10 runs to go all seven innings for the win.

“We had a pretty good weekend,” CCC coach Derk Kramer said.  We were able to see some good things from the team. We are looking forward to practice this week prepare for our next game."

Central is now 4-3 and is scheduled to play in St. Louis, weather permitting, on Friday and Saturday against Hannibal-LaGrange University.

Powell steps down as Mac baseball coach

By Steve Sell
February 07, 2016

In a stunning turn of events, McPherson College head baseball coach Shawn Powell resigned on Saturday, the day of the Bulldogs’ first game in New Mexico.

According to a press release from the college, Powell resigned for “personal reasons.”

Assistant coach Aaron Martinez will step up as the interim head coach as a search begins for a new coach.

“I sincerely wish coach Powell the best in his future endeavors," Director of Athletics Andrew Ehling said. "Timing is never great when a coach steps down, however the administration and coaches are prepared to step up for our baseball student-athletes."

Under Martinez, the Bulldogs split their opener Saturday with the University of Southwest in games played in Hobbs, N.M. Mac won the opener 6-1 and was edged 4-3 in the nightcap. No game information was available.

It’s the second straight year the Bulldogs have changed coaches during the season. Ehling had been the head coach before accepting the AD job during the season, with Powell assuming command. Mac was 8-44 last year, 2-26 in the KCAC.

Frazier fires huge series in home finale

By Steve Sell

McPherson High’s Carl Frazier made his final Starlite Lanes appearance a memorable one.

On Senior Day here Friday, Frazier rolled a 718 to lead the MHS boys to a 2,537-2,228 victory over Mulvane.

He had games of 236, 257 and 225 to easily dominate all other bowlers in the house.

Jeff Reed had games of 222 and 213 on his way to a solid 626. Other MHS scores were Clayton Ouellette (598, with a 248 high), KC Becker (548), Talin Goebel (533) and Mathew Stiggins (510).

For the JVs, who lost 2,000-1,880, Evan Berry was tops with 499. Other scores were Ben Houston (479), Devin Hartley (470), Mathew Gesaman (432), Sean Birzer (307) and Daniel Reynolds (282).

It also was Senior Day for Bailey Holton, who did herself proud with a 538 for second on the team behind a 545 by Alexis Kieffer. MHS lost the dual as Mulvane had a nice team, 2,437-2,045.

Other MHS scores were Ashley LaSalle (498), Maysan Groote (460), Anna Young (425) and Brooke Miller (366).

The JV girls were a 1,458-1,348 winner behind a 477 behind Amanda Miller. Other scores were Kaylnn Chick (400), Randie Baker (312), Caitlyn Fortner (250) and Kimiko Bullis (215).

“It was a good day to send the seniors off,” MHS coach Herb Halinski said. “Seniors Bailey Holton and Carl Frazier had good days. I know both are planning on going to the adult ranks after the high school state tournament to see how they measure up to the good players in town and challenge themselves bowling as many tournaments as they can in the future.”

Halinski was impressed with the Mulvane girls.

“The girls did a real good job, but just ran up against a buzzsaw with Mulvane,” Halinski said. “Their girls team is one of the best we have faced all season.”

MHS bowls Thursday at Hutchinson.
