Last Tuesday the Warren Warriors baseball team took on the Eagles of Woden. The Warriors jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the third inning but were unable to hold on dropping the game 4-3.
Warren pitcher, Hunter Jacobson, threw five strong innings striking out six while only giving up one hit and no runs.
The Warriors were held scoreless until the third inning when walks to Kelby Weyler and Jacobson proved costly for the Eagles as Cody Cardin's double and Drew Kirk's single drove in three runs. Warren's pitcher Connor Fry came in to pitch the sixth, but Woden was able to get to him, scoring four runs in the inning before Dylan Scherry came in as relief.
The Warriors were also in a tournament in Frankston last weekend. A no-hitter by Weyler lead the Warriors past Cayuga 19-0 while a late game error by Dawson proved costly as the Warriors won 6-5.
The varsity team will be traveling to Franklin for a tournament March 12-14 and then in Anahuac on Tuesday March 17 at 7 p.m. for their first district game.
Power lifting – The Warren community congratulates sophomore Cade Flebbe for qualifying for State as he placed second in his weight class lifting a total combined weight of 900 pounds. Senior Cameron Flebbe placed third with a combined weight of 1180 pounds and sophomore Tyler Murphy placed third with a combined weight of 1020 pounds in their respective weight classes.
Warren's Coach Compton said "I am very proud of my boys. Cameron got off to a very rough start on squats, but did not quit. Murphy dropped from first down to fifth, but fought back to third. It has been a pleasure to work with these fine young men."
Tennis – Last Friday, the Warren JV tennis team was in the Hardin Jefferson tournament where Seth Brown and John Applewhite took second place in boy's doubles.
