The Hotchkiss Bulldogs lost out on playing a baseball doubleheader with Aspen back in March. The two games are crucial to Hotchkiss' record and the Bulldogs will host a conference doubleheader against Aspen, at 2 and 4 p.m. Monday, April 30, at the K-8 baseball field in Hotchkiss.
Brayden Wilson hit his first homerun of the season and Ryan Pachl was 3 for 4 in the Bulldogs' two-game sweep Saturday against Gunnison.
"That helps a lot," said head coach Jason Yantzer, whose team won 10-7, 10-5, despite being down two key players.
It's something that a lot of relay runners take for granted, until they mess it up.
It's the handoff, also known as the exchange, and it can make or break a relay team's success.
The Hotchkiss girls team placed first in four events and earned 52.5 points to place fifth overall at the Frank Woodburn Invitational track and field meet.
The 1600-meter relay team of Savannah Rocha, Natalie Anderson, Jenni Celis and Aleksus Wilson not only won, their time of 4:11.24 topped all other times in state 3A competition, according to Max Preps (maxpreps.com).
