Royal Valley's Tim Martin Jr. (shown above, middle) gets some recognition from coach Raub Kirkwood (left) after drawing a walk in game action earlier this season. Martin Jr. was helping fill in for the injured Derek Linn last week and had a solid showing in the sweep of the Cyclones.
  Timing is everything and while Royal Valley’s baseball team may have been inconvenienced by the weather last week, it ended up working out perfectly for the Panthers. In Wathena, Riverside and Royal Valley resumed their league doubleheader precisely a week after starting it on Monday. Before the...
Wildcat pitcher Derek Haverkamp (shown above, left) warms up in front of coach Joe Purcell (far right) and the rest of the Holton infield in game action earlier this season. Haverkamp had a big weekend for HHS, tallying six hits and four RBI in tournament play and pitching a complete game in one outing to help Holton go 2-1 and finish as runner-up in the Butch Foster Memorial Classic.
  It may not have ended the way the Wildcats wanted, but even a loss in the championship game couldn’t take away the great deal of success the team had in the Butch Foster Memorial Classic baseball tournament in Kansas City over the weekend. Even in the final game, Holton was cruising along against...
Holton's Aaron Bain (shown above, at left) sees the ball down in the outfield before taking off to score while Royal Valley's Noah Hart (right) waits for the relay throw. The teams split the series on Monday, with the Wildcats picking up an 11-2 victory in game one and the Panthers closing out the doubleheader with a 7-1 victory.
  All signs pointed to Monday’s doubleheader between the Holton and Royal Valley baseball teams being a pretty evenly matched affair. Both the Wildcats and Panthers sported similar records heading into the match-up with each team having its hits and misses so far this year. Monday’s games were a...
Royal Valley's Garrett Schultz (shown above) fires in a pitch early in the first game of a non-league doubleheader against Valley Falls. Schultz came up big on the mound and at the plate to help the Panthers pull off the sweep of the Dragons.
  Winning is always fun, but the way teams win can also add to that and RV baseball coach Scott Ternes couldn’t help but be pleased with the way the Panthers won a pair of games against Valley Falls last Thursday night. Royal Valley executed its game plan to perfection, pulling off a pair of close...
Wildcat Luis Butto (shown above) gets a hold of a pitch and puts it in play during the first game of Holton's home doubleheader against Falls City to start the season. Butto came through with a big RBI double to help HHS start the season with an 8-2 victory over the Tigers.
  Holton had two very different games in a home doubleheader against Fall City (Neb.) to start the baseball season on Saturday, though the Wildcats started things off on the right foot. Starting pitcher Justin Rieschick, who HHS coach Joe Purcell said was in solid early season form, cruised through...
