Teams of The Week
Here is a look at the teams that made the biggest moves or had huge weeks as a team for each division
Northeastern Oklahoma A&M 5-1
Northeastern Oklahoma A&M is a team that never gets any recognition. This past week they broke into the National top 25 in part due to this past week. They lost Monday to National Ranked Cowley (20-9). But after that put their foot on the gas and finished the week with 5 wins, with four coming against National Top 10 Division 2 team Kirkwood.
Their solo loss on the week is one you might expect. Cowley is always a very good team and mixed with 10 walks on the mound they just fell short.
Coffeyville 14-0 (5 Innings)
They bounced back after the first lost to run-rule Coffeyville 14-0 in 5 Innings. Tyler Small led the way at the plate for them going 2-2, with a double, triple, 4 RBI’s, and 2 runs. Not to be out done was Daniel Merrill who threw a 5 Inning No-Hitter with 1 walk and 2 Hit Batters striking out 6 along the way.
Kirkwood 9-8 (11 Innings)
The first game of the 4 game series came down to the wire in walk off fashion. They channeled the “Green Light Special” as some call it and stole 12 bases through 6 different guys (Mathieu Valle (3), Tyler Small (3), Emile Boise, Jacob Ervin, Kevin Esquilin (3).
Another close one, this one was led by Mathieu Vallee (2-4, Double, Homer, R, RBI) and Dionysius Chialtas (2-3, Double, Homer, 4 RBI’s, 2 R).
Kirkwood 13-0 (5 Innings)
Daniel Merrill was back at it again for the second time this week he had a CGSO. 5 Innings, 13 K’s 1 Walk, and 1 Hit. Jacob Erivn had 2 homers on the day while driving in 4 runs.
To close out the weekend they took the last game off the bats Tyler Small (2-4, 4 RBI), and Zane Knox (2-2, Homer, 3 RBI, 2 R)Read more
Kansas for many that do not know is one of the top places to go see Junior College baseball in the country. With top talent every year, National Ranked teams year in and year out. But for some reason when they get to Grand Junction Things just have not gone their way. The last time any team from this district has made it to the National Championship game was back in 1998 when Cowley won 15-11 over San Jac and yes that is older than most likely every single player that is playing in that district/region this year.
With that being said it is about time a school from kansas finally got over the hump.. Three of the last 4 years the ticket has been punched by Cowley (2019, 2017, 2016) with the other Ticket being punched by Barton for their first trip to Grand Junction.
The crop of talent this year is up among some of the best in the country across the entire country:
Johnson County’s- Quinton Hall, Jay Long, and Jackson Galloway
Barton’s- Alex Rodgers, and Carson Pracht
Colby’s- Brayedn Cust
Cloud’s- Kayden Beurgedard, and Evan Wilde
Neosho’s- Drew Miller, and Khalil Thrasher
Fort Scott’s- Dylan Foo and Jakob Machuca
Cowley’s- J’Briell Easley, Blake Roberts, and Janson ReederRead more
