Morning Sentinel Boys Basketball Player of the Year: Zach Hartsgrove, Nokomis

Bryden's play earned him the Division III National Hitter of the Week honors from March 19-25 by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association.

Maddie Wiedrich got the Mustangs their first win in No. 2 singles behind a strong afternoon with her serves and ball placement.

"We didn't shoot particularly well, but we played well on defence", said Eagles boys head coach Vince Reynolds. Now more of the players at Lincoln High have club soccer experience, and players at Lincoln High are encouraging friends they've played with in the past to come to Lincoln High and play soccer.

They've already accomplished a few goals, including winning their bi-district playoff game - a 3-0 win over El Paso Coronado last Thursday. The third-seeded team of Allyson Meek and Brooke Sutherland won their match 9-7. Brayden Debates came on in relief for the final two innings of the game.

The Gladiators took advantage of consecutive walks, bringing both of the runners around to score, the first on a single from Julian Mungarro and the second on a grounder to shortstop from Jayden Cruz. We had a nine-point sweep in singles, which is new territory for me.

Despite having their backs to the wall, Dwornikiewicz said Delhi never anxious about the score or precious seconds ticking away.

Once Delhi got on the board, Skinner said, it was all downhill from there. "I think it puts us in a good place not only for tomorrow but into the future because there's a lot of talent and potential to win a lot of games".

With the fans going insane, the Rockets tried to remain calm after taking their first lead of the night.

"Each year, each team is different" Waddy said. "We're just working on every aspect".

The Rockets are no strangers to late game heroics.

The Xtreme went 3-2 at the tournament beating the West Central Wheatkings 5-3 in their opening game, then losing to the Islanders 3-1, beating the Thompson Blazers 3-1 and beating the Winnipeg Hawks 7-1 in the semi-finals. She also stated, "The teams chemistry is great, the tennis skill level is nearly the same for every line". "We lost two starters, but we return some very good arms". Senior Chelsea Arrick has moved from midfielder to the defensive backfield, where her impact has been huge, Crouch said. "They want to get a program established so year after year, we can continue to be competitive. If we can do stuff like that, we're going to be hard to beat".

"It was a game of whoever had the wind would dominate", Franco said. Their bond, he added, extends far beyond the ice.

"They're good sized and physical and they have a quality forward and same with some of their midfielders", Kellar said about the Lady Chargers.
