Sheridan’s ‘funk’ continues with loss to Lakeside

April 19, 2011

The Sheridan Yellowjackets are in a bad funk right now and aren’t hitting or playing as well as they were to begin the season.
Their skid continued Monday night with a 5-3 loss to Lakeside at home.
“We just aren’t playing real well right now,” Sheridan coach Mike Moore said. “We got some things going mentally. We are thinking too much and trying too hard.
“We need to simplify some things and get back to some basics and fundamentals.”

Junior captain Kettell ‘loves to hit’

April 18, 2011

For Glen Rose head baseball coach Chase Meyers, junior Brandon Kettell is the “kind of kid everyone loves to coach.”
“He is extremely smart on and off the field,” Meyers said.
The 17-year-old son of Melissa and Flynn Kettell, who plays second base and bats second for the Beavers, is what his head coach calls an “overachiever.”
“In my book, that is about the best compliment you can give a person, because it means that he has worked to get where he is,” Meyers said.”He is not blessed with amazing talent or ability, but he excels where others do not.”

Panthers take down Pine Bluff

April 15, 2011

Benton handed Pine Bluff an 11-1 loss in five innings Friday.
Head coach Mark Balisterri said, "Believe it or not, it was a tough game for us."
Balisterri said, after winning big against El Dorado, Vilonia and McClellan, he didn't want his players to get cocky.
"You do that and sometimes you start thinking, 'Hey, we're great and can't be beat.' Well, they didn't do that," he said.
Sophomore Coulton Lee pitched all five innings for the Panthers, allowing one run in the first inning. He struck out eight batters while giving up two hits, one walk and one hit-by-pitch.
