Warriors still searching for first win
By KEVIN ECKLEBRRRY
The LaGrange Academy Warriors are still searching for their first win.
Springwood used a five-run fourth inning as a springboard to a 9-3 victory over home-standing LaGrange Academy (0-3) on Friday.
The good news for the Warriors is that none of their losses have come against region opponents.
LaGrange Academy took the lead with a run in the bottom of the first, but Springwood answered with two runs in the top of the third.
Springwood broke it open with the five runs in the fourth inning before plating two more runs in the fifth to take a 9-1 lead.
LaGrange Academy scored two runs in the bottom of the sixth, and Springwood capped the scoring with a run in the seventh.
Joseph Calhoun did a nice job from the lead-off position with two hits and an RBI, and Daniel Swann and Mason Brown each had one hit and an RBI.
Evan Smith and John Whitlow each had a hit for the Warriors.
Swann was the Warriors’ starting pitcher, and he threw 3 2/3 innings, and Brown, Riley Hess and Luke Swann finished things off on the mound.
In the second inning, Hess and Smith led off with walks, and Hess later scored on a Calhoun groundout.
The Warriors pushed two more runs across in the sixth inning.
Whitlow was hit by a pitch leading off, and he came around to score on a Brown double.
Daniel Swann’s RBI single brought in Brown for the Warriors’ final run.
LaGrange Academy visits The Heritage School on Tuesday.
