TMB bombs Redwood 17-0

With a big assist from Sean Castle the Panther baseball team crushed Redwood Valley 17-0 in five innings Tuesday at Tracy. Castle hit two home runs to drive in seven runs and pitched a three hit shut out for the win. The Panthers improved to 7-2 for the season and they are 5-1 in the 212 Conference.

“Sean (Castle) had an outstanding day all-around,” said Panther Coach Bill Tauer. “Our bats have really come alive the past two games. What I am most pleased about is the two games with no errors defensively. The kids have really taken pride in our defense.”

To go along with Castle’s 3 hits Matt Bauer, Derek Daniels, Brett Jackson and Erik Frisvold added two hits each to the 16 hit Panther attack, with Jackson also having a home run.

Castle pitched five innings giving up no runs on 3 hits while striking out 3 and walking 3 to get the win.

Girls remain unbeaten in 212 Conference golf

The Panther golf teams split with BOLD on a very windy Monday at the local golf course. The boys lost a close contest 185-187 and the girls won 217-221. The boys’ season record is now 3-9 and the girls are at 5-3.

The girls are now 3-0 in the 212 Conference and will battle with YME for the regular season championship on Friday, May 6 at Granite Falls

“Our only other conference match is with RCW this Thursday and, since they do not have a full girls team, we will be 4-0 going into the YME match,” said Panther Coach Randy McIntire.

The 212 Conference awards a championship for the best season record as well as for winning the conference meet which will be held at Grove City on Monday, May 9.

Scoring for the Panther boys were Ted Nilius with a 43, while Mark Buysse, Anthony Vroman and Kyle McIntire all shot 48’s.

Scoring for the girls were Nicole Hansen 50, Kayla Lau 53, Casie Bryant 56 and Kim Lau 58.
