Girls on the Run race competitively Visitors to Cabell Midland are greeted by a new marquee designed by members of the Excalibur Chapter of the National Honor Society.
Midland marquee gets a facelift The Cabell Midland High School marquee has a new look. Members of the Excalibur Chapter of the National Honor Society at Cabell Midland High School helped to design and donate a new graphic to greet visitors as they come to the school. The previous marquee’s graphics were in need of repair and the students had a vision that took the marquee into the future. Officers of the Excalibur Chapter met with Chapter Adviser Sarah-Elaine Benda Jarrett afterschool on multiple occasions to brainstorm what the new graphics were going to look like. Students came up with various ideas and ultimately decided on the elements seen as you drive down Route 60. “By being a part of the design team, I was thrilled to be able to SEE MIDLAND ON PAGE 7

Shelters seek $30,000 in help from county By Jim Ross For The Cabell Standard
Faced with a cut in help from the state, Branches Domestic Violence Shelter is asking counties in its service area to help fill the gap. Three officials from Branches attended the April 24 meeting of the Cabell County Commission to request $30,000 for next fiscal year’s budget.
Julia Woelfel, a board member of Branches, said Branches provides services in Cabell, Lincoln, Wayne, Mason and Putnam counties. It could see its appropriation from the Legislature cut for next fiscal year as the state deals with its own budget problems, she said. “Each year our needs grow and our budget shrinks,” she said.

2014 primary candidate profiles and positions U.S. House of Representatives 3rd Congressional District Evan Jenkins (R) It has been the honor of my lifetime to represent Cabell and W a y n e counties in the state legislature. My wife Elizabeth and I and our three children are blessed to call this Evan Jenkins (R) community home. I entered public service to increase educational and job opportunities for our children and improve the quality of life for all residents of our region, and I will do the same in Congress. This country is moving in the wrong direction. Our economy continues to leave far too many out of work. ObamaCare has resulted in higher out-of-pocket health care costs and canceled insurance for millions of Americans. The agenda coming out of Washington is having a particularly negative impact here in West Virginia because their policies heavily punish the energy, health care and manufacturing industries upon which our economy relies. Because certain representatives are committed to their own party, nothing is being done to alleviate the struggles most West Virginians are enduring. Congress is gridlocked, and Washington is
failing to provide leadership, choosing instead to double-down on failed agendas. But if we’re going to undo the damage the last five years have done, as well as chart this country on a course that improves the lives, wages and retirement security of West Virginians, we must put partisanship aside and solve problems. I have been a problem-solver in the legislature, working across the aisle to protect higher education funding, address the crime and drug epidemics we’ve faced for years, and improve the climate for small businesses to operate in West Virginia. Now more than ever, we need leaders in Congress who focus on solving problems for our state and who are dedicated to preserving our constitutionally protected rights and freedoms; that’s the kind of leadership I’ll bring to Congress if I’m privileged enough to earn your support once again.
Richard Ojeda (D) I was raised and graduated from high school in Logan County. I served 24 years in US Army as an enlisted man until I received a military scholarship to attend WVSU to earn my degree and commission to the rank of 2nd Lieutenant. While In college I also served in the National Guard as a scout. As an officer I served in numerous leadership positions to include Platoon Leader, Company Commander in both peacetime and during combat, Chief of Operations for a Brigade in combat, Operations Officer during the Humanitarian mission to Haiti immediately following the devastating earth-

quake and Security Forces Team Chief over eight Afghan Police organizations while in Afghanistan. I have proudly served with the 82nd Airborne Division, 2nd Infantry Division, 10th Mountain Division and the 20th Airborne Engineers. Since returning from Afghanistan I co-founded the LEAD (Logan Empowerment, Action and Developemnt) Community Organization. In the past two years since its establishment we have sent 800(+) children to school with new shoes, removed graffiti, removed tons of litter and over 1,000 tires out of the creeks, pressured local leadership to establish the Abandoned/Dilapidated Structures Program that has removed over 100 structures to date, run a toy drive with numerous organizations, civic groups, churches and volunteers that blanketed Logan two years in a row with toys for Christmas to assist families that have fallen on hard times. I stepped down as President of LEAD to run for office. I am a Christian that attends the Word of Life Church and I am married to an amazing wife who has been an absolutely amazing military spouse. We have two wonderful children, Richard III who will be a senior at Logan High and Kayla Lavon who will be a freshman this coming year.
State Senate 5th District Bob Alexander (D) I am running for office because I am tired of special interest controlling the election process. I vow to be a voice of the people. I want to serve you the general public. I want to do Bob Alexander (D) what is best for all concerned. If you are frustrated with West Virginia being last or almost last on every list then I am your candidate, because so am I. I will base decisions on phone calls and fact-finding missions, not who gave me money to get elected. I love kids and pets, helpful to the elderly, for jobs and educa-

Mike Woelfel (D) I have been married to Julia Woelfel for 37 years. Our son Michael currently serves as a Cabell County magistrate. I am a fifth generation West Virginian and lifetime Cabell County resident. I am a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church. I maintain a general law practice with my son Matthew. I am also the managing partner of a real estate development company, comprised of residential and commercial properties. The theme of my campaign is “progress not politics.” I am running for political office for the first time and intend to focus on job growth with emphasis on government facilitating economic development not impeding. Most people I interact with suffer fatigue from the conflict model of governance which now prevails. I consider myself a fiscal conservative.
House of Delegates 16th District Carol Miller (R) It has been my honor to represent Cabell and Lincoln counties in the Legislature for the past eight years. I serve on the Agriculture Co., the Health Co., and the Finance Co. I am Minority Chair of Carol Miller (R) the new Small Business and Entrepreneurship Committee. During the interim meetings I serve on the Infrastructure Co. and the Agribusiness Co. I take my position as an elected official as a serious responsibility. It is my duty to represent my constituents to the fullest degree possible. I read the bills every evening with a group of other delegates, who serve on different committees, in order to hear what discussion occurred in the committees that the bills came through. This enables me to fully understand the underlying issues with the legislation. My concerns lie in the fact that so many of our people leave the state in order to find jobs. I promote legislation that will bring good paying jobs to our state that will keep our children here to raise their families. We must educate our children well to prepare them for the future. We have a drug addiction problem in the state. I will continue to work on legislation that will help us attack this epidemic from all angles. I have promoted drug rehab and recovery in the com-
munity and the prisons. We need more attention on the mental health aspects. I am a wife, mother, and grandmother. I have been married to Matt Miller for 41 years, have two sons, Chris (wife Cassie), and Sam (fiancée Katie Bennett), and three precious grandchildren. I have spent 40 years working and volunteering. I am a member of the Fifth Avenue Baptist Church, where I sing in the choir.
Jim Morgan (D) I am proud to announce that I am a candidate for re-election to the WV House of Delegates. I have served in the Legislature for nine terms and much has been accomplished. We have re- Jim Morgan (D) duced the corporate net income and business franchise tax and eliminated the food tax. During the recent downturn in the economy, the state has remained fiscally sound. A major achievement was the legislation to secure unemployment compensation and transition to a private insurance market. I currently serve as chairman of the House Government Organization Committee, which handles all legislation related to licensing professional occupations to ensure West Virginians are well served and yet protected. We have a major challenge in substance abuse of all kinds and I have worked for and will continue to provide legislative measures to assist state and local government in this battle. I serve on the new select committee on small business and economic development which will learn from successful businesses and develop plans and resources to help entrepreneurs. My campaign slogan is “Listens to problems and works for solutions.” I understand the role of a delegate and take seriously the responsibility to serve the citizens of my district. I am genuinely interested in preserving our freedoms and defending our rights and my voting record will attest to this fact. I diligently serve the best interests of my constituents and believe that too often we forget more can be accomplished by working together than through extremism. In my non-legislative life, I am active in many civic and benevolent organizations and am a member of the clergy of The Episcopal Church. I am the retired owner of Stadium Bookstore and have the great blessing to have been married for 53 years and have four grown children. CONTINUED ON PAGE 5

Lauren Plymale (D) My name is Lauren Plymale and I am running for the House of Delegates in the 16th District. I grew up in Wayne County and attended and graduated from W a y n e C o u n t y schools. I Lauren Plymale (D) then went to Marshall University and West Virginia University College of Law. My current positions include: Cabell County Democratic Executive Committee Parliamentarian; Boys and Girls Club of Huntington Board of Directors, Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #122 counsel and member; Alpha Xi Delta Sorority Advisor; Mountwest CTC adjunct faculty; and Milton city attorney. I have been an assistant prosecuting attorney in Cabell County for over seven years. Through my work as a prosecutor, I have seen first-hand the devastation that substance abuse takes on entire families and our area. A significant number of the cases I deal with daily involve drugs in some aspect and it is essential that we approach this epidemic. Not only do we need to strengthen the penalties for people dealing drugs requiring mandatory minimum sentences, but we also need a long-term lockdown residential treatment facility for drug abusers. This would remove a significant number from the prisons as well as help reduce the recidivism rate. Early intervention and education for children about the danger of drugs is also critical. I believe that if we can focus on the drug problem it will make our area more desirable for businesses to establish themselves and create more jobs in our area. We also need to focus on preparing students for such careers by curriculum development that steers students toward the skills relevant to jobs in the work place. I was raised and have always taken pride in the fact that I am a hard worker and would continue to do so if I was given the honor of serving as your Delegate.
House of Delegates 17th District Joyce Holland (R) As a second time candidate for the WV House of Delegates 17th District I find the issues that plagued our state and counties are still issues plaguing our state. Drug abuse and addiction continues to tear down and destroy our family structure contributing to child neglect and abuse by di-

Community News verting finances and attention away from the care that all children need and require. I am certain most of us have had someone we know who suffers from this tragic disease. Education - our state ranks, according to many polls, 47th on the list of students who are not proficient in achieving their current grade level. By the time a student is in the eighth grade their proficiency level is just over 55%. With that kind of struggling to do everyday work it should no surprise that graduating rates are low. How can students be prepared to support themselves without a sustainable education? In Wayne County schools buildings are in much need of repairs and replacement with schools and equipment that offer students the best advantage possible; it's our best defense against poverty and drug use. And that brings us to the jobs that aren't. While I have seen some progress there must be much more done to bring more jobs to our state. Jobs that pay good wages and that offer opportunities to the workers to adequately support their families. These are important issues for our delegates to work toward changing. It continues to be a problem each year/ session with very little resolution. We deserve to have a good - no excellent - educational system since we are paying for it with over 50% of all our taxes. My background in corporations and working with non-profits affords me the chance to understand many family situations.
Matthew Rohrbach (R) I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as a candidate for the 17th District of the House of Delegates. My parents raised three children on a union wage from Owens. I graduated Vinson High School. Attendance at Marshall University led to graduation with a medical degree. After training I chose to return to Huntington. It has been my privilege to care for the citizens of this community for 24 years at HIMG. While growing up in a middle class family in Huntington I never doubted this area offered its young people a chance to stay here and have the opportunity for a good job. I decided to seek election because I am afraid that opportunity no longer exists in this region for our youth. West Virginia’s two largest exports currently are coal and our young people. Once our children and grandchildren leave this state for work elsewhere, they usually don’t return. This trend is leading to a declining tax base that is making it very difficult for
the state to balance its budget. Chronic budget shortfalls will make it difficult for West Virginia to maintain its infrastructure, social programs, and education system that our families depend on for a better quality of life. Our legislature has to seek ways to diversify our economy. Regrettably the war on coal is producing rising unemployment and declining state tax revenue. The state’s budget is also worsened by declining lottery revenues. Creation of a business climate that will attract new and retain existing businesses simply has to be done. Failure to act at this time will only worsen the job crisis for working West Virginians. Without a broader more diverse tax base none of the budgetary problems of state government can be solved. A more focused education system and solving the drug addiction problem must also occur.
State Executive Committee 5th District County Executive Committee 7th District Susan Hubbard (D) I am a candidate for two Democratic Party positions. I am completing a four year elected position with the West Virginia State Democratic Party's Executive Committee in the 5th District, as associate secretary following being appointed to fill a resignation. I am running for re-election unopposed for this position. I am also running for the first time to be elected to the Cabell County Democratic Executive Committee in the 7th District. Serving my second term as president of the West Virginia Federation of Democratic Women, Inc., I have urged others to become more involved at all levels with the party. Therefore, my being a candidate at the local level is the first step for others to run for any and all offices. I served eight years representing Cabell and Wayne counties in the WV House of Delegates, attended the Democratic Party's National Convention, plus 10 years as president of the Cabell County Democratic Women's Club. I am running to strengthen my party for success, involve more people in the political process. Stress to people the importance of voting. Married for 51 years to Fritz Hubbard, with two grown sons and four grandchildren. I am a proud graduate from Marshall University with a BA in elementary education and MA as a reading specialist after my two sons began school in Cabell County. I would appreciate your vote on May 13.

SHELTERS FROM PAGE 1 Woelfel said Branches provides case management, legal advocacy, emergency shelter and individual and group counseling for victims of domestic violence. The organization helped 20,000 people last year, she said. Amanda McComas, interim director, said Branches would like to start a program in middle schools and high schools focusing on domestic violence prevention. Typically violent behavior begins between the ages of 12 and 18, she said. Also, the shelter in Huntington
needs major repairs, she said. Commissioners Bob Bailey and Nancy Cartmill said the commission had already prepared its budget for fiscal year 2014-15 and forwarded it to the state auditor’s office, but they would see what they could do. Commissioner Anne Yon was on vacation and absent. Contacted after the meeting, McComas said representatives from Branches are trying to get on the agenda for a meeting of the Putnam County Commission in June to ask for help, too.

Velma’sView By Velma Kitchens Falling off the horse I lived on Clymer Creek when I was in fifth grade at Central Elementary School located at the end of Turkey Creek Road. Some of my friends from school lived at the head of the hollow, which is the end of the hollow. The mouth of the hollow is the beginning of the road. Country people will get what I am saying. The Womack kids lived on Clymer Creek and we all had good times at school. One Saturday one of the girls came riding by on a big work horse. I had not ridden a work horse ever in my life. I re-
ally can't remember the details, but I do remember this girl asked me if I would want to walk home with her and said I could ride the horse. Well, being the adventurous one at that time, I said ok. We got up the road and this girl decided we could take the horse to the creek to let it get a drink of water and we did. I finally got up the nerve to get on the horse. I think I had to climb in a tree to get on the horse as it was so tall. The girl with me was leading the horse but the horse did not have a saddle. Do work horses have saddles? As you can tell I’m not much
WeeklyDevotional By Mary Jane “Living the good life” Thought for the week: And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life; he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. John 6:35 (KJV) Of all the sermons, TV movies, and activities surrounding this past Easter, one line still stays in my mind, ”Everyday should be Easter.” Statistics show Christmas is the most celebrated holiday of the year, but I think it should be Easter. I know the beginning was God having a son born - the Christmas season.
Then to follow His life until His death. But to believe He has risen again to give us hope, faith and trust to have new life after death is to realize we will never suffer pain or problems again in a new life. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. John: 6:47 Why is it that people support all sports and players with such hoopla and shouting? Why is it that people support entertainers as if they are gods? We as humans do not want to appear different, we feel that we must be included.
The Cabell Standard on horses and don't really trust horses. Anyway, as this girl was leading the horse, he decided he was hungry after he drank from the creek and bent his head down to eat. I came right off the horse by way of his face - sliding very quickly - I was really scared. I didn't get on another horse for years after that. I was riding too close to the horse’s neck. I wasn't even on his back! I think I told the girl I was going home and she went on home alone. You would think being the horse person she was, she would have told me where to sit so I would not fall off. Several years later I rode on a small pony and I loved it. He was very gentle. The people who owned him lived on Harveys Creek out Route 34 on the way to Hamlin. One day I may take a horse ride again… but the horse has to be slow and old. So when someone asks me, you are a Christian aren’t you? I answer yes… are you? We should not have to be asked, we should show our faith and be proud. It is the highest honor bestowed on man or woman to know that you will be taken care of in every way in this life – if you believe in God. Spring is here. I wish everybody were fortunate enough to listen at dawn and dusk to the endless chanting of one of God’s creatures as I do. The eastern whip-poor-will. He is loud and clear as I lay down to sleep at night… and upon rising, he sings again. Live the good life, have faith and trust it all to your creator God. Enjoy each day this coming month of May. Prayer: God, of all you send us, the sunshine lifts our spirits most, thank you. Amen.

Midland tennis teams preparing for upcoming regional tournament By Matt Gajtka firstname.lastname@example.org
As the calendar page turns from April to May, the postseason approaches in spring high school sports. Tennis is no exception, as the Cabell Midland boys and girls teams prepare for the upcoming Class AAA Region 4 tournament, which begins May 8 at Huntington’s Ritter Park. Both squads experienced a taste of the big-school competition they’ll face in the regional when they took part in the Mountain State Athletic Conference tournament April 23 in Charleston. Although the Knights didn’t place in the team competition on either side, there were individual accomplishments to be celebrated. Chief among those were runs to the semifinals by Midland’s top three boys singles players, Alex Beam, Cullen Mears and John Kuhn. The trio of juniors each earned a pair of victories before players from regional power George Washington got in their way at the Schoenbaum Courts in Kanawha City. Beam lost just two total games on his way to the semis in the No. 1 singles flight, where he fell to

Ryan Massinople. Mears grinded out a pair of early wins before losing to eventual No. 2 singles champion Zack Koenig, while Kuhn dropped a decision to flight winner Nick Koenig at No. 3. In doubles, the No. 3-seeded sophomore tandem of Charlie Newfeld and Will Foster defeated Winfield’s Moritz Deuwell and Adam Walters 8-2 to advance to the quarterfinals, but the Huntington duo proved too much to handle in the semis. “Huntington and George Washington usually dominate (the MSAC), but I thought we did pretty well,” Midland coach Mary Watkins said. After qualifying for the state tournament last year as a sophomore, Beam figures to pace the Midland boys in the regional, which will also include Huntington, Hurricane, Point Pleasant, Winfield, St. Albans, Logan, Nitro, Spring Valley and Lincoln County. “(Beam) is a good player,” Watkins said. “He’s fun to watch if you get the chance.” Beam, Mears and Kuhn will need to lead in the postseason, as the boys don’t feature a single senior. That’s not the case on the girls side, where seniors Maya Thompson (No. 1), Claudia Chapman (No. 2) and Brooke Estep (No. 4) hold down singles spots.
In the conference tournament, Thompson, Chapman and sophomore Corey Sargent each won their respective first-round matches to earn points for the Knights. Much like the boys, the Midland girls also fielded a thirdseeded doubles team at the MSAC event, a duo that consisted of sophomore Shelly French and freshman Megan McKinney. They defeated South Charleston in the opening round before Hurricane got in the way in the quarterfinals. The Midland boys and girls were scheduled to face three regional opponents the week before the regional tournament, with Point Pleasant and Winfield making the trip to Midland and the Knights battling Nitro on the road.
Advisor Sarah-Elaine Benda Jarrett and officers of the 2013-2014 Excalibur Chapter of the National Honor Society helped give the school marquee a new look.

MIDLAND FROM PAGE 1 leave a lasting mark on the school through a program that encourages other students to become involved,” treasurer Autumn Diehl said. After they had settled on their design theme, the concept was then passed on to the Academy Coordinator Dale Martin. Martin served as liaison to craft the design with the help of Cabell Midland alumnus Noah Martin and King Custom Graphics. Work on the new graphics and placement on the marquee began last week with the removal of the old knight and the installation of the new design. The results are astounding and have many people stopping to admire the work. The students’ design incorporates Cabell Midland High School’s motto, “Live Pure, Speak True, Right Wrong” as well as statements used fre-
quently by students including “Go Knights!” and “We Must Protect this Castle.” Additionally, the knight from the school logo was used, but given a more modern, formidable appearance. “Students want to feel like they are more than just a name on a roster. Letting them get involved with projects that impact the school at this level make them feel more like shareholders,” Jarrett said. National Honor Society members work hard on community service and school improvement activities all year. This project allowed them to take the work to the next level. “It is just good to know that I can see the impact I’ve had on the school every day as I pass by the campus in the future,” president Christopher Courts said.

Christian's Sports Beat: Kicking it into gear with spring practice
By: Christian Deiss
For a few weeks in March and April the Marshall University men’s soccer team held spring practice at the Thundering Herd’s Veteran’s Memorial Soccer Complex in Huntington. The squad had the opportunity to work on its fundamentals and decision making. Two players for the Herd are local to the Teays Valley area, Trevor Starcher, a redshirt freshman from Hurricane, and Tommy Trupo, a freshman from Scott Depot. I asked the two young teammates what it is like
1. Lose velocity (2 wds) 7. Birthplace of Solidarity 13. Mexican steamed dish 14. Bitter alkaloid extracted from chinchona bark (pl.) 16. Forever, poetically 17. Ester of carbamic acid 18.

being able to practice during the spring. Trupo told me, “It’s fun because it’s different from the fall, you get more time to work with players, and you get more playing time to work on your game. You have a whole new team and you have to figure new things out.” Starcher echoed Tommy’s thoughts, “It’s really beneficial because we get a lot of practice and playing time, everyone gets to play more and that’s important.” I saw the Herd play Northern Kentucky on a cold and rainy day, with the contest ending in a 0 – 0 draw. The 2013 season was a rough one for the squad as the Herd finished with a record of two wins, 11 losses and six draws. Both players came from really successful high school teams. Starcher was all-state for the Hurricane Redskins and Trupo was the state’s top player for the Charleston Catholic Irish. I wanted to know from both players what last year’s experience taught them. “It taught me how
38. Hail Mary, e.g. 42. Anger 43. Houston university 44. Cesspool 45. Pigeon’s home 46. Characteristic carrier 47. Face-to-face exam 48. Balloon filler 49. Writes in symbols 52. “... ___ he drove out of sight” 53. Generous portion of food 55. Freshen 57. Procurers 58. ___ Island, N.Y. 59. Converted, in a way 60. Circus lion ___ (pl.) Down
1. Church tower 2. Situated on the side 3. Egg dishes, e.g. Denver or cheese
the ball bounces, we had a few close games that could’ve gone either way, which didn’t go our way so we had to deal with a little bit of adversity which should help us in the future,” said Starcher. Five of last year’s defeats were by only one tally. “Last season gave me a lot of valuable lessons actually. We might have had a tough season but a team can learn and grow from that. Even though our record didn’t show what we wanted it to, I feel it brought us closer as a team and being as young as we were it gave us something to build on,” commented Trupo. At times last season the Herd started a large number of first year players. A fact that I discussed with assistant head coach Thomas Olivier, “We have objectives we want to meet by the end of spring and we do have a young team with four to five freshman starting at any time last fall. We will try to get some maturity and experience and that’s what spring games provide the play-
4. “This means ___!” 5. Arm bone 6. Hammer part 7. Hospital stretcher with wheels 8. Fare reductions 9. A chip, maybe 10. National Institutes of Health (acronym) 11. Confuse (2 wds) 12. Nairobi residents 14. Four competitions in a tournament 15. Appear 20. Drench 23. Aristocracy 25. West Indies’ music genre 27. Copy 28. It’s a wrap 31. Departed 33. “The Three Faces of ___” 34. Be silent, in music 35. High heat oven device 36. Grind (2 wds) 39. Golden 40. More stylish 41. Angers 43. Yield 45. Beanies 46.

ers. It gets down to getting minutes on the field.” For the upcoming 2014 season the Herd will face three teams that appeared in the 2013 NCAA Tournament, one of which played in the College Cup semifinals. But before the fall season, coach Olivier told me it was good to be back on the field in the spring, “It’s been a long winter and the NCAA only allows us to train eight hours a week through early February, unlike in the fall when we can work as a team 20 hours a week. The guys are itching to get back outside and compete instead of just scrimmaging.” That cold and rainy Saturday I watched the team was a challenging contest for both teams, especially for Starcher who was still cold when I spoke to him after the game. “I still can’t feel my hands, but it’s a good experience because it prepares you to be able to play in any type of weather.” To keep up with the Marshall men’s soccer team, go to www.herdzone.com.

Midland baseball vows to improve after discouraging loss to Capital By Matt Gajtka firstname.lastname@example.org
In the immediate aftermath of Capital's 8-5 win at Cabell Midland on Friday, coaches’ and players’ reactions said it all. Following the final out, Capital players pumped fists, slapped backs and otherwise loudly celebrated near the third-base dugout. On the other side of the field, Midland huddled for a stern discussion led by coach Tracy Brumfield and continued by his assistants. After that, the Knights ran sprints from foul pole to foul pole. The scene was a lesson in standards, as last year's Class AAA runners-up responded angrily to serving up Capital's first Mountain State Athletic Conference win of the year, also its first victory against Midland in 11 years. For Brumfield, it wasn't so much the poor result as the way it happened. In addition to allowing 11 Capital hits, Midland committed four errors that led to four unearned runs. "It wasn't a very positive talk just now," Brumfield said. "They played ball and we didn't, and that's what you get. We've got to play better than that." Entering the game, No. 3 Midland (10-8, 5-2 MSAC) had won back-to-back matchups against Logan and Huntington, ranked ninth and 10th in the latest West Virginia Sportswriters Association poll. However, Brumfield has had reservations about his team's play for a while. "We've been OK so far, but not as good as we should be with all the guys we have back from last year," Brumfield said. "We're not playing to our potential right now. It's been like that all season." The Capital game turned sour in the third, with Midland holding a 3-1 lead on RBI hits by Derek Adkins and Jacob Perry. Three Knights errors opened the door for the Cougars to plate five runs,

three of which scored when Trenton Campbell's bases-loaded single skipped past Adkins in right field. Adkins responded by driving in Taylor Kuhn in the third, and Midland added another run with the help of a throwing error by Capital third baseman Alex Buchanan in the fourth. After that, though, the Knights struggled against hard-throwing reliever Anthony Gavin, who permitted just two infield singles over the final four frames. "Don't get me wrong, he threw the ball well, but he couldn't throw the curveball for a strike," said Brumfield about Gavin. "You have to sit on the fastball there. They made some plays at the end, too. They did what they had to do to win a ballgame." Tyler Hayes did all he could to boost Midland to victory, getting two hits and pitching the final five innings in relief of William McNeel. Hayes, a left-hander, allowed two runs on three hits in the fifth, but he leaned on an outside fastball to retire nine of the last 11 Capital batters. Despite his personal success, Hayes talked about trying to recreate the atmosphere that

"We have to focus on doing what we need to do," said Hayes, a returning all-state performer. "(Tonight) sends a message that we have to play harder. We need to be a team and get to know each other really well. We haven't been
other things. We need to come together as a team. We're playing like a bunch of individuals right now." The Knights can look forward to the final two weeks of the regular season, which features seven games before sectionals begin May 12.
