  • Third and fourth grade
    The 3rd and 4th graders took the field in Dawson last Thursday night and battled the home team tough. The young Sting lost the first game 9 to 4.

    The boys hit the ball well, but Dawson made the plays when they needed to. It was a tough night, especially when the boys are showing improvement.

  • Third and fourth grade
    The 3rd and 4th graders took the field in Dawson last Thursday night and battled the home team tough. The young Sting lost the first game 9 to 4.
    The boys hit the ball well, but Dawson made the plays when they needed to. It was a tough night, especially when the boys are showing improvement.
    In the second game it was the same result, with the Sting losing 13 to 7. It's disappointing seeing the boys lose, but again they are getting better in all aspects of the game. It's a good learning experience for these young men. Some of the high lights included Tyler Nordaune going for 4 for 4 with three runs scored. Khristian Luwaugie also had 4 hits in 4 at bats with a run scored. Cody Dahlager and Ty Schulte were 4 for 4 with 2 runs scored each. Jaden Gorres, Nikson Knapper, and Ethan Fagen all had 2 hits a piece.
    Fifth and sixth grade
    Game one
    GF 15, Dawson Boyd 2
    Granite used 11 hits and aggressive base running to plate 15 runs.
    Bryant Bestland, Bennett Knapper, Ayden Friese, and Sam Oligher all had two hits each. Carter Sneller, Tate Schulte, Dalton Anderson, Elliot Korstad and Alex Jacobson also had hits in the game.
    Ethan Peterson started on the mound and threw three solid innings for the win. Bennett Knapper closed out the game with a one-two-three inning.
    Game two
    GF 6, Dawson Boyd 4
    GF took control in the first inning of a time shortened game by putting up five runs in the first inning before holding on for a 6-4 win.
    Elliott Korstad ripped a one-out double in the right center field gap to get things started. Run scoring singles by Sam Oligher, Bryant Bestland, Carter Sneller and Ethan Peterson were coupled with a pair of walks which led to the big inning. Sam Oligher drove in the sixth run of the game in the third with a single to left.
    Bennett Knapper started on the mound pitching one scoreless inning. Sam Oligher pitched the next inning and Tate Schulte took over in the bottom of the third and worked out of a jam to preserve the win.
    The Granite team has now improved their record to 4-5-1.

    Tornados (seventh grade)
    The 7th Grade Tornadoes made a visit to Montevideo last week looking for their 1st win of the season. The game got away from them early with several errors in the early innings. Conner Dopp started the game and pitched well, throwing plenty of strikes and making the Montevideo hitters earn their way on the bases. By the 7th inning the game was out of reach, with the tornadoes losing 13 to 0. Nicky Lindstrom, Jordan Phinney, and Ty Anderson all had hits in the game.
