Knight baseball wins season finale By EMILY HANSON emi@masoncoun com Four late runs earned the Mary M. Knight baseball team its lone victory of the season. The Owls, in their last game of the season, defeated Pope John Paul High School 4-3 May 14 in Matlock. "We put our hearts into this game and it showed with great defense, outstanding pitching and awesome team- work," head coach Butch Carr said. Heading into the bottom of the fifth inning, Pope John Paul led 2-0. The Owls tied it up with two runs. After saving another run, Mary M. Knight pushed across two more runs in the bottom of the seventh inning for the victory. "This was our first victory in two years of play," Carr said. "It shows growth in our young players and our program." Paul Werly pitched a com- plete game, giving up four hits and walking three. He struck out five batters in 86 pitches. "Werly kept the ball down in the strike zone and com- manded the fastball, which set up his curve, which had the hitters out front and off- balance," Carr said. He said Harley Kenyon was the defensive star of the game. Kenyon played flawless at sec- ond base, had five assists and one put-out. At the plate, James Ander- son led the Owls, going 1-3 with one run and one RBI. A1- ycia Gerou went 1-3 with one run, while Kenyon also went 1-3. "We had a great fan re- sponse to the first home game and they were treated to a great ballgame," Carr said. "We really appreciate their support." He said he looks forward to next season, stating that the Owls (1-5) have a solid nucleus to build around. "The kids understand about continual improvement and dedication, so we'll keep at it," Carr said.
