Baseball – Spartans skid continues

The Berthoud High School (BHS) baseball team has hit the skids of late, dropping their sixth-straight game on Tuesday afternoon on the road by an 18-8 final to Riverdale Ridge. The Spartans have been hitting the ball well; in Tuesday’s game the team recorded 12 hits, two of which – doubles from Lawson Dawe and Adam Hays – went for extra bases. The problem for the team has been in the field. Four errors and eight wild pitches allowed the speedy Riverdale squad to hang 18 runs on the board despite recording just 10 hits.

Connor Jorissen led Berthoud with two RBI while Dawe, Landon Kuntz and Jack McCrea each recorded two hits. Three different pitchers – Hays, McCrea and Grady Schelle – took to the mound for Berthoud and while each battled, not one ever got into a real groove. The trio combined to allow 11 free passes while recording only four strikeouts in five combined innings of work with a .605 on-base average against allowed.

Berthoud will get another chance against Riverdale this Thursday on their home diamond.


Girls Golf – Lady Spartans place fourth at Riverdale

The BHS girls golf team had their regular varsity foursome in action on Monday afternoon at Riverdale Knolls golf course for a Longs Peak League (LPL) meet. The Lady Spartans took fourth place in the 10-team event, with a team gross score of 299. Niwot won the meet, shooting a combined 247. Berthoud saw sophomore Brooklyn Tychsen lead the team with a 96, good enough for eighth place in the 40-player field. Junior Anya Knoll was just one stroke behind, carding a 97 to take 10th, Ashley Russell 106 for 13th place and Oliva Gravestock rounded out the BHS foursome with a 106 to place 13th.

Riverdale Knolls was both a challenging and unfamiliar course, helping explain why the Lady Spartans all shot above their season average. Playing alongside the varsity foursomes, the meet also featured a nine-hole JV tournament with two players competing. Berthoud Head Coach David Hunn selected a pair of freshmen to compete; Kaylee Padilla shot a 66 and Mason Premer turned in a 69. The pair will be joined by two teammates on Monday at the Bella Rosa JV meet and the varsity squad will tee it up at challenging Pelican Lakes next Thursday in the LPL meet hosted by Windsor.


Girls Lacrosse – TSD squad keeps rolling

The Thompson girls lacrosse team has extended their winning streak to 12 games.

Last Thursday, the Lady Eagles handled Holy Family with ease, winning by a football-like 21-7 final score. BHS junior Aidan Carr was the star of the meet. The 2021 All State honoree scored a team-high eight goals and contributed two assists to lead all players with 10 total points. Carr also secured a team-high seven ground balls and caused a pair of turnovers in the 14-point win.

Playing Tuesday night on the road at Northfield, the Thompson team once again won by a 19-7 final.

The Lady Eagles will be back in action on Thursday when they travel to Horizon and will then play their regular season finale at home against the Dawson School on May 5 at Ray Patterson Stadium in Loveland.
