Whittell baseball sweeps, softball wins game one Saturday

Douglas EttenWhittell's Alex Vogt delivers a pitch during the first game of Saturday's doubleheader versus North Lake Tahoe. The Warriors swept both games in Gardnerville.

GARDNERVILLE, Nev. – Whittell’s Alex Vogt has come along nicely from where he was a year ago.

North Lake Tahoe found out firsthand Saturday morning as the Vikings’ lefty rolled through the Lakers lineup, hiccuping just once in route to a complete game 9-1 win in game one of a Saturday doubleheader in Gardnerville.

“It all starts with throwing strikes and he did that today,” Whittell head coach Starbuck Teevan said.

The senior captain allowed just one unearned run on two hits, striking out 10 and walking just two on 97 pitches. He struck the side out in second and third innings,

Offensively, Vogt wasn’t too shabby either, going three for four at the plate, collecting two RBI, a stolen base and a run scored.

Alex Potnick was two for four on the day with a double and three runs scored. Designated hitter Matt Schorr was two for three with a double and a triple. Taylor Weik had a pair of hits out of the leadoff spot. All-in-all the Vikings rang up ten hits in game one, scoring two in the first, two in the second and three in the third to build a healthy lead. Game two got underway around 1:30 p.m.

Girls win on Senior Day

The winning streak for Whittell grew to eight games Saturday morning. And if the Lady Warriors had anything to say about it they were hoping to grow that streak to nine after opening a doubleheader with their North Lake rivals by beating them 13-2 in Gardnerville.

On a day where the Whittell coaching staff wanted to honor their seniors for four years of hard work, they got a lunch pail mentality type game in the first of two. Highlights, stats and comments from the Saturday matinee may be found online Tuesday at http://www.tahoedailytribune.com
