Baseball Falls to South

BaseballBaseball Falls to South

Parkersburg - Host Parkersburg South pounded out 13 hits and erupted for six runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to halt the game as the Patriots posted a 12-2 baseball win over Warren Tuesday evening at Hank Greenburg Field.

Despite blustery winds and the temperature in the 30s Tuesday, the Patriots wanted to get in an OVAC game versus Warren and hopefully another OVAC contest at 5 p.m. today as well at Greenburg with Fort Frye with OVAC tournament play beginning this weekend.

And South got off to a good start Tuesday after Warren plated a run in the top of the first frame on a Seth Dennis walk and stolen base, a slow roller to second base for a putout at first base as Dennis advanced to third, from where he scored on a ball squirted toward third that the third baseman couldn’t pick up that went for an infield hit.

Ben Menarchek, South’s leadoff hitter, drove the first pitch up the right-center field alley and raced around the bases for a triple. Todd Burner followed with a line-shot RBI single to left field to tie the score at 1-1. A Warrior throwing error put another runner on base and Reece Fletcher smacked a two-run double into the right-center gap too to plate two tallies to give the Patriots a 3-1 lead they wouldn’t relinquish the rest of the way.

Vincent - Justin Lough was a blur in the 300 hurdles.

The Warren High sophomore set a school record in the event Saturday at the Warrior Invitational with a clocking of 39.2 seconds.

Lough’s PR (personal record) in the event was 40.17, which he ran in last season’s regional to qualify for the state track and field meet in Columbus.

Blackburn was the previous school record holder in the hurdles in 39.3, set in 2003.

“I just went out as fast as I possibly could and tried to maintain it down the stretch,” Lough said. “Now, my goal is to run a 38, because I want to go back to state this year.”

Lough was also first in the 110 hurdles in 15.80 and a leg on the winning 4 by 200 and 4 by 400 relay teams.

Overall, host Warren had a good day in its home meet with both the boys and girls finishing first.

The Warrior boys finished with 134 points to second-place New Lexington’s 100. Rounding out the rest of the field were Philo (61), Belpre (56.50), River Valley (50), Fort Frye (48), Morgan (39), and Alexander (32), Meigs (30), South Gallia (4), and Waterford (2.50).

Warren’s girls repeated as meet champions with 159 points. Rounding out the rest of the field were Morgan (80), River Valley (60.50), Philo (54), Meigs (49.50), Alexander (47), Belpre (43), Waterford (34), Fort Frye (10), New Lexington (9), and South Gallia (8).

Warren junior Trent Sayre was also a winner in four events –800, 1600, 4 by 4 and 4 by 8.

Kate Liston Signs with Marietta College

Kate ListonKate Liston Signs with Marietta College

Vincent - As a three-sport letter winner at Warren High senior Kate Liston could almost go “eeny, meeny, miny, moe” on which one to play at the collegiate level.

Turns out, though, it’s a no-brainer as she wants to continue hooping it up. So on Friday, April 13, she committed to Marietta College in a ceremony at Warrior Gymnasium.

“I love all my sports,” said the 5-foot-9 Liston.

At Warren, Liston also played volleyball and was a thrower on the track and field team.

“I’ve played basketball the longest,” she continued, “I started playing when I was in kindergarten. So, basketball has a special place in my heart.

“But I love them all. I’ve made so many great friends playing sports.”

And, the personable Liston will continue to do so at Marietta College, where Katie Rauch, a former Warrior teammate, is also on the roster.

“After I visited there and talked to Coach (Kole) Vivian for a while, I felt like that was the place for me,” Liston said. “I’m really excited to fill whatever role I can for the team.”

Liston should be right at home at MC, which posted a school-best 24-5 overall record last winter. The Pioneers achieved many other firsts as well during the campaign, like a national ranking, most Ohio Athletic Conference wins, an OAC Tournament championship, and an NCAA Division III tourney appearance.

Nick Ward Signs with IUP

Vincent - Nick Ward, a two-time state qualifier in golf at Warren High, will be carding scores at Indiana University of Pennsylvania after spring graduation.

The 6-foot-4 senior signed a National Letter of Intent to continue his education and play golf at IUP at Warrior Gymnasium Friday afternoon.

“I actually sent my stuff to them,” Ward said. “They didn’t come to me.

“And I met them up there, and the coaches are great and the campus is real nice. I know it would be the best fit for me. I have family pretty close and that’s cool. I’m really excited to be going there.”

Ward is planning to major in marketing. At Warren, he has a 3.2 GPA (grade point average).

“Nick feels IUP is very comfortable for him,” said Warren head coach Nathan Evans.

Ward will become the seventh Warrior in the golf program to play at the collegiate level next fall. Steve Farley and Jane Kubala are currently competing at Marietta College; Kyler Dennis and Megan Jacobsen, at Ohio Valley University; and Max Hapney and Josh Jankauskas, at Davis & Elkins.

Baseball Falls to Meadowbrook

Vincent - Meadowbrook scored seven times in the final two innings here Thursday, which included a five-run top of the seventh, as the Colts rallied to double up host Warren, 8-4.

The Warriors, who won the earlier meeting this spring in nine innings by a 4-3 score, got a strong start from Brett Gandee before he left a few pitches up late and was chased with one away in the seventh.

“I think, you know, we didn’t finish,” admitted WHS head coach Ryan Lemley, whose club dropped to 5-7 and heads to Logan for a 5 p.m. first pitch today. “Let’s just call it what it is.

“I don’t know if that’s because we are a younger team and we started three freshmen and two sophomores. We got to get better at finishing and that’s why you play these games. They are a solid team and very well coached and we just didn’t get it done today.”

Parkersburg - Sarah Greenlee was clutch in the circle.

The Warren senior closer hurled 2-1/3 innings of scoreless relief as the Warriors downed Parkersburg South, 10-7, Wednesday at Godbey Fields.

The right-handed-throwing Greenlee struck out five and got out of a bases-loaded, one-out jam unscathed in the bottom of the seventh inning.

“Sarah has been in that position a lot, and I’m confident with her,” said Warren skipper Jenny Lynch. “She likes that situation. She always pulls through.”

Junior righty Diamond Decker started the game in the circle, and ended up getting the win.

“Diamond pitched a heckuva game,” said Lynch, whose Warriors improved their record to 4-2 overall. “We have to back her up a little bit better than we did.”

Helping her own cause, Decker had three hits, including two doubles and her first home run of the spring. She finished with three runs-batted-in.

“Elizabeth (Williams) is a four-year starter for us and she always seems to come up big when we need her the most,” said veteran Warren head coach Jenny Lynch. “We have a lot of faith in her and I can’t think of anyone else I would want up there in that situation.”

Softball Loses Opener to Wheeling Park

SoftballSoftball Loses Opener to Wheeling Park

Wheeling - Opening Day was shaping up to be a pitchers’ duel between Wheeling Park and Warren Local. That was until junior Kelsey Chacalos strolled up to the plate in the fifth inning.

With two outs in the frame and the game deadlocked at 1-1, the Patriots’ centerfielder laced a two-run double to deep left field, which proved to be the game-winner as Park defeated the visiting Warriors 4-1 on Saturday. The game was played at West Liberty due to unplayable field conditions at the I-470 Complex.

Warren Local’s Sarah Greenlee had only allowed two hits and struck out nine going into the fifth, but Chacalos knew it was time to step up and deliver.

“I thought to myself, ‘I’ve already gotten out twice, so I need to hit the ball’,” Chacalos said. “I was expecting a rise ball but she just threw me a fast ball down the middle.

“This is a big win for us because we needed that one win to start us off.”

The lead held up thanks to a gem tossed by Park ace Ashley Linder. The junior held the Warrior bats to just four hits and one unearned run to go along with four strikeouts.
