The young baseball season has proven to be quite successful for Delta head baseball coach Marty Rover and his Delta Panthers. After playing last weekend’s doubleheader against the visiting Steamboat Springs Sailors, Delta has posted a solid 4-2 season.
The Hotchkiss Bulldogs swept a doubleheader against Cedaredge on March 20, 8-3, 13-1, upping their overall record to 3-1 to lead the 2A Western Slope conference.
In game one, Kaden Milstein put the Dogs on the board in the bottom of the first, and Devan Rupe scored on a single by Cesar Gonzales for a 2-0 lead.
The Eagles baseball team had an easy day at the office Saturday, outscoring the Rangely Panthers (0-2, 2A Western Slope conference) by 38 runs to sweep the home conference doubleheader.
Jaden Miller was 4-for-4 and hit the team’s first home run of the season in Paonia’s 19-0 opening-game win.
The Hotchkiss tennis team swept all seven matches against Delta Saturday. Head coach Brian Benson said the Panthers gave them the toughest test of the season, “but we may have had our best performance of the year as well.”
Cedaredge High School track coach Kirby Henderson made sure all his athletes got excellent competition opportunities over this past weekend.
Henderson sent part of his squad to Hotchkiss and another portion to the Mickey Dunn Invitational in Grand Junction.
