Losses to Kenny, NF Christian Verot in UNF tourney

Waddell on the mound.Last week was one the Wildcat baseball team would like to forget.

The Cats lost a close one to district foe Bishop Kenny and then dropped games against state powers North Florida Christian and Bishop Verot in the UNF Tournament of Champions. They bounced back a little in their final game of the tourney, beating Eagle’s View.

The week started badly with a 2-1 district loss to Kenny as the Crusaders took advantage of some breaks at home on Thursday, March 15.

Chris Waddell threw five innings and Brad Stone came in for the sixth inning.

“We just didn’t execute enough to win the game,” said Coach Fred Matricardi. “We had chances but couldn’t get that big hit.”

The Cats came out on Friday with a hangover from the Kenny game and it showed as they lost to North Florida Christian 8-3. BCHS gave up five runs in the second inning and that proved to be the difference.

“We made a couple of uncharacteristic mistakes and came out a little flat after the Kenny game,” commented Matricardi.

Hunter Hanks led the offense, going 3 for 4.

Lewis, an outstanding catcher at Mars Hill, impressed the Cardinal staff during his time in Jupiter to the extent that he was asked to attend a special mini-camp and signed a contract on February 26.

He is the son of Anna and Woody Lewis and batted .342 for the Lions.

Improved hitting garners two straight wins

Brad Stone looks to get the out at first.The Wildcat baseball team split games last week, beating Middleburg, but losing to Ridgeview. The Cats host West Nassau on Thursday, February 23.

The Wildcats got their first loss of the season to Ridgeview on February 15 by a score of 3-1, despite a strong performance on the mound from Dillon Jones.

“Dillon threw well,” said Coach Fred Matricardi. “We just couldn’t get a hit when we needed. We had bases loaded twice with one out and only scored one run. When you strike out 10 times it’s hard to win at any level.”

The Wildcats’ bats heated up a little on Monday, February 20 as they bested Middleburg 7-3. Jacob Milton picked up his second win in relief, throwing 2.2 scoreless innings.
