Eisenhower splits opener at Ark City By Michael Buhler

The nightcap was tied at 14 after 10 innings, but the Tigers scored six times in the top of the 11th to take a 20-14 lead and seemingly had the game in hand – until Ark City scored seven runs in the bottom of the inning to pull off an improbable comeback. Macy Omli had a memorable day for Eisenhower, racking up 12 hits over the twinbill and driving in nine runs in the second game. She also homered twice in the second game. Marissa Anschutz pitched the Tigers to a win in the opener. Eisenhower faced Derby and Wichita Northwest at Derby last Friday, losing 11-1 to the host and 16-1 to Northwest. The Tigers played at Campus earlier this week. Eisenhower hosts McPherson and Salina Central Friday and hosts Goddard on Tuesday.

The Cheney Cardinals found home to be sweet on the baseball diamond Monday. The Cardinals got six strong innings from Micah Grover in the opener, while catcher Jacob Howell had three hits and drove in a pair of runs as the Cardinals downed Wichita Trinity 6-3 in the opener of a doubleheader. “I’m glad the boys were able to get the win and experience it early,” Cheney coach Shawn Bennett said. “They are starting to see that we can be a competitive team this year if they
buy in and do things the right way. We were one inning away tonight from a potential sweep of a pretty solid squad.” In the nightcap Monday, five innings of two-run pitching by Kaleb Howell were spoiled by a trio of sixth-inning errors in a 7-4 loss. Grover drove in all four Cardinal runs. Cheney opened the season last Tuesday at Southeast of Saline and lost both games of a twinbill, falling 4-2 in the opener and 10-0 in the nightcap. Grover tossed five innings in the nightcap and allowed no earned runs.
The Cardinals are off until Monday, April 11, when they head to Medicine Lodge. vs. Wichita Trinity

ing how to play with one another,” said Eisenhower coach Brandon Sommer. “Looking forward to the girls jelling more over the next couple of games and with the return of one of last year’s starters, Sam Harpenau, the jell may take a couple more games, but we should continue to be competitive.” Goddard opened tournament play March 28 against Buhler and won 2-0.

Carter, Kaitlyn Logan and Davis each scored a goal. Logan provided two assists and Hutchison had one. “I thought we performed very well in the tournament,” said Goddard coach Jessica Jackson. “The Lady Lions have not been to the championship game for a few years, so to get to that point and then take Eisenhower – a very strong team – into penalty kicks was a victory for us. It is always hard losing in PKs – you might as well just flip a coin – but we are looking at the positives and building on each other every game. We are continuing to do whatever it takes to make each other look good on the field.” Goddard’s season debut was March 22 against Wichita East. The Li-
ons shut out East 3-0. Hutchison picked up two goals and Davis added one. Both girls provided an assist. Following that game, Goddard took on Rose Hill. The Lions walloped the Rockets 6-0 March 24. Hutchison was responsible for three goals, Logan had two and Davis chipped in one. Logan had two assists and Davis logged one. Most recently, Goddard clobbered Salina Central on Monday, when the Lions prevailed 4-0 on the road. Hutchison scored the lone first-half goal with an assist from Logan, and Hutchison scored again in the second half with no assist. Others who scored goals for Goddard were Davis, with an assist from Logan, and Morgan Jilka. Jade Batson provided the assist.
