MT. PLEASANT—The North Sanpete High School baseball team struggled last week, losing three Region 15 games and losing ground in the race to the post-season.

On Tuesday, the Hawks, who were sitting at .500 in region play at the time, hosted the Richfield Wildcats. The Wildcats exploded for 11 runs against the Hawks, as the Hawks were not able to keep up. The final score was 4-11. Shawn Taylor accounted for two of the Hawks four RBIs on a double.

The next day, the Hawks hosted a double-header with the Grand County Red Devils. In the first game, the Red Devils jumped out to an early lead, scoring 12 runs in the first three innings. But the Hawks kept scratching and clawing, getting a run here and there. In the sixth inning, the Hawks made a big run at the Devils, scoring six runs to bring their total to 12. But they fell just short, as the Devils scored the last run for a 12-13 victory.

In the second game, the Hawks just did not have the juice, and fell to the Devils 1-11.

From being .500 in region play, the Hawks now sit at 3-6 and fifth place in Region 15. With three games left in region play, the Hawks are probably not in danger of missing post-season play, but they are going to need to find some offense to successfully compete in the future.
