KANAB—Although a work in progress, the Hawks finished last week still looking like a solid squad.
North Sanpete baseball earned a win against North Sevier, 10-8, prior to the Chuckwagon Classic in Kanab, where they earned a revenge win over Providence Hall, 4-2, but lost games to Beaver, 8-6, and Enterprise, 9-6. North Sanpete’s record moved to 3-4 overall.
The Hawks benefitted all week long from excellent baserunning. Against North Sevier, neither team had any doubles, triples or home runs. What the Hawks did do, however, was steal 10 bases, wreaking havoc on the Wolves’ basemen. Senior Hunter Price led at the plate with three RBI.
Against Beaver, Price was again impressive at the plate as he cracked a home run, while the Hawks got two other players with a double each. Despite North Sanpete leading late, Beaver finished strong with three runs in the fourth inning and in the fifth, overcoming a five-run effort by North Sanpete at the bottom of the fourth to take a lead.
The Hawks fielded well against Providence Hall in payback for their season-opening loss. North Sanpete committed no errors and doubled up the Patriots in the hit count in a low-scoring affair.
Finally, against Enterprise, an effort of two triples by one of Enterprise’s top hitters paced an even hitting performance by the Wolves as they led, 9-4, after three innings. Junior PJ Cook hit a double while junior Logan Black had two RBI.
The Hawks’ season continues into region play this week as they take on Delta on Tuesday and Thursday before their rivalry series with North Sanpete next week.
