BASE­BALL Li­ons im­prove record to 2- 0 af­ter 17- 3 vic­tory

The Lo­ganville Chris­tian Academy var­sity base­ball team im­proved its over­all record to 2-0 with a 17-3 win over Mon­signor Dono­van Catholic School (Athens) on Thurs­day.

Se­nior left-handed pitcher Kurt Law (3 IP, 3 R, 3 H, 0 K, 4 BB, 2 ER) was cred­ited with the win.

Fresh­man Spencer Earle (2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 2 K, 2 BB, 0 ER) fin­ished the game with two no-hit in­nings in his first var­sity ap­pear­ance.

The Li­ons recorded 16 hits in the con­test, with fresh­man Drew Sewell sin­gling to left field in his first var­sity at-bat.

“I chal­lenged our hit­ters to be more ag­gres­sive at the plate and they re­ally re­sponded,” said Li­ons head coach Rus­sell Hen­dricks. “This gave us an op­por­tu­nity to play some of our younger play­ers for a cou­ple of in­nings and get a glimpse of what the fu­ture holds for the LCA base­ball pro­gram.”

The lead­ing hit­ters for the Li­ons were Zaine This­tle (2for-3, dou­ble), Nick Mauney (3-for-3), Tee Wel­don (2-for3, two RBIs), Matt Kirk­land (2-for-3, dou­ble) and Nathan
