#2 Remsen St. Mary’s Remains Unbeaten in the War Eagle

290

Remsen St. Mary’s improved to 3-0 in the War Eagle Conference with a 13-3 victory over Gehlen Catholic last night. The Jays got on the board with a run in the top half of the first inning and followed it up with four runs in the third inning. The inning was sparked by a two-run home run by Blaine Harpenau to put the Hawks up 3-0.

Alex Schroeder drove in a run in that inning on a base hit as well.

The Jays had a quick answer in the bottom half of the third as Zach Kraft stayed hot at the plate with his third home run in as many games.

Remsen St. Mary’s batted around again in the top of the fifth inning putting up another four runs with runs coming in on Damen Brownmiller and Blaine Harpenau doubles. The Hawks put it away in the top half of the sixth with three runs to go up by 10 and mercy-rule Gehlen Catholic after 6.

Blaine Harpenau went 4-5 with 5 RBIs, 2 doubles, and a home run in the win. Head Coach Dean Harpenau says it is leadership from players like him that lead to Remsen St. Mary’s success.

Carter Schorg got the win on the mound for Remsen St. Mary’s going 5 innings giving up 7 hits, 3 runs, and striking out 6.

These War Eagle Conference rivalries pose great competitions for Coach Harpenau and Remsen St. Mary’s.

Even winning by 10 runs, Coach Harpenau has a list of things he’d like the Hawks to improve on.

The Hawks improve to 5-1 and 3-0 in the War Eagle Conference and will be at West Sioux tonight and home against South O’Brien on Friday.
