Free State wins; LHS tumbles

April 2, 2008


— Caleb Gress pitched a complete-game two-hitter, lifting Free State High's baseball team to a 3-1 victory over Olathe Northwest on Tuesday.

Gress struck out eight and walked two, going the distance and helping the Firebirds improve to 5-0.

"He did a good job of keeping them off balance with both curve and slider," FSHS coach Mike Hill said, "and he spotted the fastball."

Offensively, Free State scored all three runs in the fifth inning. Adam Rock socked a two-run triple, and Hunter Scheib had a two-out RBI single.

The Firebirds will play at Leavenworth on Thursday.

SM Northwest 5, LHS 4

Shawnee - Lawrence High's baseball team committed five errors - including three in a four-run seventh inning that doomed the Lions to a 5-4 loss Tuesday to Shawnee Mission Northwest.

"We were absolutely aggressive the first six innings. It was great," LHS coach Brad Stoll said. "We were aggressive in all facets. We were not aggressive in the seventh. Northwest was putting it out there for us to finish it, and we couldn't get it done. We just really did not take the initiative."

Lawrence will travel Thursday to Olathe North.

Compare schedules plumerscrack! LHS has played the best of the best. Sure Freestate is doing great and that is good for them and the rivalry. LHS has a good team and that will show late in the season.

plumerscrack, I've always understood you know little about sports, I didn't always notice your use of our written language. "Errors is all LHS seems to be making in there games." "There" is a place, "their" implies possesion and "they're" means "they are great", look at your cereal box it will tell you, like Tony the Tiger. Figure out the use of "are" and "is" after nouns too.

Way to have pride in yourself and your school. Go ahead and blame everyone, that way you don't have to be accountable. As for the bet, I haven't said anything like that since junior high and you have already proven you are NOT the man with your ignorant postings on other sports articles. Just because you have an unhealthy hatred for LHS doesn't make you a sports authority. Freestate probably has a better team, but that doesn't make you smart. Just calling it like it is, not crying about anything.

Your postings are what proves you are ignorant. You don't love Freestate because they are a better team, you love them because you hate LHS so much and they are the anti-Lion. My kid isn't even good enough to be on the field to have the opportunity to make an error. Besides that, 10 year olds don't have a lot of success athletically at the high school level.By the way, I have forgotten more about sports than you will ever even know. Also, I am done with this. I'm sure in your world you have to have the last word and that is fine. I will wait for another ignorant posting on another story. Talk to you soon.
