No matter which he has on, he always plays hard and does an excellent Ervinton 1 job. His pitching performance, two lilts, four strike outs and one walk was good enough to lead his team to an 11-1 victory over Ervinton on Tuesday, April 6 at Castlewood. Oh yeah, let's don't forget his ability to swing the bat either. His 3 for 4 day at the plate, along with Blake Lyons 2 for 2 led the Devils' hit parade. Blue Devi ls lose pair to Coeburn in the sixth when the Lady Knights pushed across an unearned run. Lindsey Lawson scored the run from third base when the Castlewood catcher threw wild at first after a Coeburn batter struck out. Lawson had reached third base on a hit, a sacrifice and a wild pitch.

Paul Deacons to a 14-1 victory Tyler Phillips also had three at Ervinton on Saturday, April hits for the Deacons. Lady Deacons get thumped errors. Brittany Funk, the Dea- con pitcher, hit a batter and walked a batter in the inning. Three Deacon errors ac- counted for the four runs. It got worse as the game progressed. Emily Kendrick had four hits for the Tigers. No Deacon had more than one hit. The Deacons' four hits came from Katie Bradley, Brittany Funk, Hannah Wright and Hannah Edmonds. by Allen Gregory The Lady Tigers from Honaker came visiting to St. Paul on Monday, April 12. They went home with a 19- 0 win. Many of the Tigers runs were in the form of gifts. That is scored because of Deacon errors. The Deacons made a boat- load of miscues probably too many to mention. Suffice it to say the Deacons had trouble catching and throw- ing the ball on target. The first two innings were scoreless for both teams. Each team put runners on the bases but could not get the key hit. However, all that came to a halt in the top of the third when Honaker scored four times. In that inning Honaker had 'two hits.
