RCHS baseball takes district, aims for region
In May 28 Issue
By Derek Aaron
Times Journal Sports Editor

Coach David Rexroat's Laker baseball team won the 16th district tournament championship last week after throttling Clinton County, 8-0, at Laker Field and has also advanced to the 4th region championship game after a 2-0 win over Warren Central Tuesday night.

Five Lakers, Bryson McFall, Adam Black, Cody Stephens, Quinton Warriner and Tyler Robertson made the all-district team, which was announced following the victory over Clinton County.

Robertson, an 8th grader, led the Lakers with three RBIs against the Bulldogs while sophomore catcher Martin Cross batted in two runs. Seniors Cody Coffey, Stephens and Black also had one RBI apiece in the game.

Senior Quinton Warriner pitched the complete game shutout for the Lakers, giving up only two hits while striking out 10 Bulldog batters. Warriner also shut out the Dragons on Tuesday evening as well as having both RBI's in the 2-0 win.

"We've got to give it to 'Q' on the mound," said Laker head coach David Rexroat. "We played good defense and hit the ball a little bit and put them in some situations stealing, hit and runs and squeezes and they came through for us and put some pressure on them early. We were able to add a few runs late and it was just a good overall team effort."

Rexroat commended Asst. Coach Rob Clark, who oversees the Laker pitching staff.

"Two shutouts in the district, he needs to get some credit for that," he said.

The Lakers also defeated Logan County in the opening round of the regional tournament at Nick Dennis field at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green this week by defeating Logan County in opening round action, 12-1.

Russell County put eight runs on the board in second inning, an overwhelming punch to the gut of Logan County.

Senior pitcher Adam Black got the win on the mound for the Lakers.

The Lakers then defeated Warren Central in semifinal action on Tuesday evening in Bowling Green, 2-0.

Russell County will face Bowling Green, who defeated Clinton County, for the regional championship on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at Nick Dennis field at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green

Lady Lakers see season end at hands of Clinton County

Coach Trent Tarter's Lady Lakers came up just short in their bid against Clinton County and ended as 16th district runners-up.

The Clinton County Lady Bulldogs won the 16th district softball title last Thursday by shutting out the Lady Lakers 4-0 in a game at Lady Laker Field.

Clinton County shot out of the gate early and built an early lead to their advantage after Lady Dog Michelle Wray belted a two-run homerun in the game's opening inning. Later, Clinton County padded their score and added two more runs in the 5th inning while the Lady Lakers could manage only one hit off of Lady Dog ace Sarah Patrick.

Four Lady Lakers, Lacy Holt, Abbie Tarter, Hailey McBeath and Sara McClure were named to the all-district team following the game.  Holt was also named 2nd Team All-Region as catcher while McClure received region honorable mention for her play in centerfield.

The Lady Lakers lost on Saturday in their opening round game at the 4th region tournament at Bowling Green, 10-0, to Allen County-Scottsville, ending the 16th district runner-up's season.
