Things are heating up
Sports Editor Action is really heating up as the second half of the spring sports season kicks in.
It’s been an amazing first half for several individuals and a few local teams.
Individually on the track, I can’t wait for the post-season which figures to be highly-successful for a few local athletes. Certainly, the Cocalico throwers will be well represented with Jhett Janis and Spencer Moser tossing the javelin to new ridiculous lengths each week.
And freshman sensation Emily Stauffer continues to amaze in the shot put…Can you imagine how far that thing will go four years from now?
In Ephrata, we’ve been treated to an outstanding crop of female athletes, who are two wins away from securing another section title.
It will come down to depth, but Ephrata could make a run at the team title in the L-L Meet a few weeks from now. Certainly their showing this past weekend at the Hempfield Invitational proved that.
Speaking of teams, what two teams right now are hotter than the baseball and boys lacrosse teams at Ephrata?
Coach Shelley’s baseball squad is sizzling, winning its seventh in-a-row Tuesday night with a 4-1 triumph over Manheim Township. Coming into the year, with just a few starters back from last year’s section championship squad, it appeared as though there would be plenty of pitching but I was curious whether or not they had enough offense. How wrong was I?
The Mounts have not only hit, but it is actually a strength. Case in point– Ephrata has scored 10 runs or more in six of its nine wins.
They have been amazingly consistent, and have the look of a team that will not be denied.
And how about the Ephrata lacrosse team?
They are similar to the baseball squad in the fact that they had to replace nearly everyone from their championship team of a year ago, yet they continue to prosper.
The offense has come from a number of sources, not allowing teams to focus on one or two players. Also key has been the play of junior goalie Justin Mease, who has stepped in to fill the void rather nicely.
Can’t we just get to the post-season already? More RUTH, page B-2
