[3/19/18] Great day for some Fancy Footwork
GOLF__Chelan’s second time on a golf course this season was last Friday for the Wenatchee Valley Girls Invite held at Highlander GC. Kaylin Boykin came in with low score for the team (99) and 7th place in the A/AA division; Chelan as a team came in 3rd in the A/AA division. [for a little comparison, Andrea shot a 139 at this same event last year, a 120 this year; Emily shot a 68 for her first 9-hole round last year, shot a 116 for 18 holes this year; and Kaylin shot an 84 for her first 9-hole round last year, and 99 for 18 holes this year!
BASEBALL__It was a great day for baseball Saturday, as the Goats opened their CTL season with a Double Header against the Okanogan Bulldogs. It was a roller coaster day, with emotions running high on both sides.
In the first game, the Goats opened the scoring with Colt Corrigan slashing a RBI double to score a hustling Gage Estes to provide a 1 nothing lead. In the top of the second, the Bulldogs capitalized on 4 Goat errors, scoring three unearned runs. The score remained the same until the bottom of the 5th, when the Goats erupted for 3 runs highlighted by Bryson Darlingtons 2 RBI double, and Breckin Sporseen adding another RBI double to take the lead for good, with the Goats coming away with a hard earned 4 to 3 victory. Sam Austin came in to pitch in the top of the third inning to shut down the Bulldogs with 5 innings of one hit, no run, pitching to earn his first win of the season.
Game two featured a real nail biter, with the Goats scoring first. Then had an ensuing see saw battle that included a 45 minute delay for an injured Okanogan player, two ejections for a collision at home plate ( one for each team ) , a long home run by Breckin Sporseen to left, and, a hard hit RBI double down the left field line by freshman Drake Bird to tie the score in the bottom of the 7th to force extra innings. From there, the Goats surrendered 4 runs in the 8th, and weren’t able to recover, giving the Bulldogs the victory.
Next up, more CTL action, as the Goats travel to Cashmere Saturday 24th at 11 for another double header
