SHS SPORTS WRAP UP

thumbthumbthumb

Baseball:

The Bulldogs faced the Goodland Cowboys at home on Thursday, April 8, losing game one, 2-22 and game two, 1-17. Head Coach Dustin Doze said the Bulldogs really struggled throwing strikes again and they had too many errors. We need to clean things up if we want to be competitive. 

The Bulldogs will play at home again on Friday, April 16 against Scott City. 

 


Golf: 

The boys varsity golf team competed in Lakin on Thursday, April 8, placing second behind Cimarron’s 322, with a score of 381. Medalists were Ryan Thompson, 5th, 43/45 shooting an  88, Jaden Grilliot, 11th, 50/45 for a 95, Brayden Wilson, 46/52 for a 98, Dylan Wilson, 50/50 for 100, Tyrel Lynam, 54/58 for 112, Austin Plunkett, shot 47 in the first nine but did not finish. 

Mathias commented it was a warm day with variable winds during the first nine holes and breezy conditions in the last nine. “We practiced well Wednesday in preparing for the conditions we would face on the Lakin course, but the problem is we didn’t apply what was learned the day before!” Mathias was very disappointed in the effort on Thursday. “An athlete must show up to perform at a high level each time they are given the opportunity,” he explained. 

The varsity’s next meet in April 26 at Cimarron and Mathias is hopeful they will use the time to fix the holes in their games. 

The junior varsity golf team competed in Lakin on Monday, April 12. Miles Stum shot a 53 for 5th, Cole Scott shot a 64 and Ian Brummett shot a 66 for nine holes. They will travel to Leoti on Friday April 16, then at home on Tuesday, April 20.
