Central Minnesota Christian overcame a 4-3 fourth inning deficit to hand the Hillcrest baseball team a 16-5 loss at American Legion Field at DeLagoon Park in Fergus Falls on Friday.
With a perfect 12-0 Pheasant Conference record, leading to a conference championship, it’s only fitting that Ashby Head Baseball Coach Jared Larson and senior Jaden Norby of the Arrows were selected as Coach of the Year and Most Valuable Player in the Pheasant Conference. Hancock senior Preston Rohloff received Pitcher of the Year honors and senior Nate Moberg of Border West was named Offensive Player of the Year.
The Ashby baseball team started the post season with a 12-0 win over the Hillcrest Comets. Evan Paulson (3IP, 8K, 0BB, 1H, 0R) was the winning pitcher. Hunter Norby and Carter Spangler entered the game out of the bullpen and helped close out the game in relief.
The Hillcrest Lutheran Academy Comets got their 1st win of the season 11-10 against St John’s Prep in extra innings. Evan Lindgren hit a walk off double to win the game in the bottom of the 8th inning for a much needed Comet win!
