Hamilton Rewind Episode 29: End of JV Season

JV Hawkeyes nab third tournament championship

GRAND HAVEN, Mich — The JV Hawkeyes traveled to Grand Haven Saturday to take part in the Grand Haven Invitational. Despite facing two opponents who both have an enrollment of roughly two-and-a-half times that of Hamilton High School, the Hawkeyes left no doubt as to who was the best team in the tournament.

Hamilton wasted no time getting on the board in game one as they pushed across four first inning runs against host Grand Haven. Keith Phillips was dominant on the mound, earning his third win by throwing six innings while allowing only three hits and striking out six Buccaneer batters. Cody Buresh led the Hawkeyes offensively with three hits in the game as Hamilton rolled to an 11-2 victory.

In the championship game against the Traverse City West Titans the Hawkeyes were even more dominant. Adam Schreur went the distance on the mound striking out 11 and allowing only two hits to record his fifth win of the season. Schreur, Buresh and RJ Flowers recorded two hits apiece for Hamilton as they cruised to a 9-2 victory and their third tournament championship of the season.

Saturday’s wins leave the team with a 20-5 overall record heading into Monday’s season finale against Kalamazoo Christian. First pitch is slated for 4:15.

JV capture conference championship

HAMILTON, Mich. — The Hamilton JV baseball team swept a doubleheader Friday against Unity Christian guaranteeing themselves at least a share of the JV O-K Green Conference championship.

In game one Nathaniel White went the distance on the mound, while surrendering only four hits and striking out eight over seven innings to run his record to 5-0 on the season. Connor Hagen and Keith Phillips led the way, each collecting two hits for the Hawkeyes in the 11-2 victory.

Ben Baker (4-1) turned in another stellar performance in game two on the mound as he allowed only one hit in a complete game shutout victory over Unity Christian. Multi-hit games were enjoyed by both Cody Buresh and RJ Flowers as the Hawkeyes rolled to a 8-0 win.

The Hawkeyes end the conference season with a record of 12-2. Going into the final week of league play the Zeeland East Chix also had only two conference losses. The Hawkeyes are awaiting the results of the Chix final week of league play to determine whether they have won the league outright or are co-champions.

“I could not be more proud of this group of young men,” coach Brian Grabinski said. “The season started a little rough as we lost two of our first three games, but these young men decided that they would not settle for mediocrity. They decided that they were going to turn things around through hard work and sacrifice and that’s exactly what they did.”
