Snow and rain go away…
Again the only thing that the Bend Baseball program has had a tough time with this year.
With that said the Lava Bears still had a pretty epic week.
1) On Monday the Varsity took their talents to North Eugene and beat the Highlanders in a 5 inning contest 13-2. Austin Jones came out read hot with 3 hits. Caden Mathisen dealt in three quick innings on the bump. Tysen Scott and Marshall Davis both went big fly for their first home runs of the year.
2) Also on Monday, the Freshman opened up the home field in their own varsity win. Coach Simms took our 9th graders up against the North Lake varsity team. Our boys didn’t flinch winning 7-3.
3) On Wednesday the JV and Freshman teams went up north to play the White Buffs of Madras. The Madras varsity team took down the JVs while the freshman remained undefeated on the season.
4) The snow kept the program from playing The Dalles last Friday but the coaches felt that the Bears still won. The competition that the JV’s showed in the “Battle Cages” (pitcher vs. hitter) was fierce. The Varsity had a great competition of their own in a fiery inter-squad. Its hottest moment was when Tysen Scott hit Coach Cooper square in the back.
5) The coaching staff has continued to mention the following names as players that have been coachable and excited to work each and everyday. Marshall Davis, Steve Talamantes, Indy Moyes, Doug Shaw, Micajah Weisner, and Gabe Hovey. Its fun to come to the yard when so many boys are willing to work hard and get better each day.
1) Pictures this Thursday (Uniforms should be clean)
2) On Tuesday JV and Varsity leave to go to McMinnville. McMinnville has one field so the JV’s play at 2:00 and Varsity 4:30. The boys will be getting out of class at 8:45. The varsity boys will take a look around Linfield.
3) First League game on Friday vs. Redmond for Var. and JV.
4) Spring Break finalized finally sorry for the delay. Varsity will be staying in the Best Western Grants Pass Inn, Grants Pass from March 27th to March 29th.
5) JV will have practices March 28th & 29th at 9am on those days. Both Varsity and JV play Dallas HS at home on the Friday of Spring Break.
6) Freshman if you are in town you can practice with the JV any of those days. Just contact Coach Gillespie prior to doing so. Otherwise you have that time off.
Keep attacking it. A great time to be a Lava Bear!!!
***I have had a few questions about schedules. We will cover this in more detail at the meeting on Thursday but here is a link to all three schedules below. Thanks again for making this program one of the best in the state. Go Bears.
