Hawks Varsity took on St James Saturday at KU in the River City Festival. Berggren got things started on the mound throwing 3 scoreless innings. The Hawks were able to push across 2 runs in the bottom of the 4th after a leadoff walk to Grants Strong and double by Michael Novak. Carson Steiner with a selfless groundball to second base to score Strong and Blake Venneman with another selfless groundball to second base to score Novak. That was all the offense the Hawks needed for Caden Gray to come in and throw 4 more scoreless innings. Hawks win 2-0.
True team win with great plays by Venneman on defense, pickoffs by both Berggren and Gray, a potential stolen base gunned down by Connor Payne to end an inning with a strike-em-out-throw-em-out, and flyballs run down by Harry Tryban and Zaden Marroquin.
Hawks record moves to 10-5 and are back in action Tuesday night vs Shawnee Mission Northwest at 4:30, CBAC.
