Winner/Colome Falls in State Tournament

Lennox defeated Winner/Colome high school baseball team in the state tournament on May 28 in Sioux Falls.

Winner/Colome had one hit as Lennox’s Brock Anderson struck out 11 batters.

In the bottom of the seventh, the Royals loaded the bases with two outs but were not able to score the runners.

This was obviously a little disappointing way to end another spectacular season,” said coach Drew Weber.

Lennox’s pitcher threw a fantastic game and we had some chances but sometimes that’s just how it goes,” added the coach.

Ty Bolton started pitching for Winner/Colome as he threw 4 2/3 innings giving up 2 runs on 5 hits, 3 walks and 5 strikeouts.

Jackson Kinzer pitched 2 1/3 innings giving up no runs on 2 hits, 2 walks.

Bolton had the lone single for Winner/Colome.

Weber said Jackson and Ty threw a great game. “We made some big plays behind them in the field but could never get in a groove at the plate.”

Weber says it is going to be hard to replace the seven seniors—Riley Calhoon, Carter Brickman, Dalton Baker, Levi McClanahan, Nick Lantz, Jeremiah Yeaman and Ty Bolton.

They have won so many games over the past four years and have been the key part of the success we have had,” said Weber.

He added: “The future is bright with 10 lettermen coming back and some good, young talent coming up. We may not have won it all this year like we had hoped but our kids have shown that we have one of the top baseball programs in the state,” said Weber.

Winner/Colome finished the season with a record of 13-1. They were the only undefeated team in the state tournament.
