The Wildcat baseball team (18-8, 10-4 NBC) won its school-record 18th game on the road at Elmwood to clinch solo second-place in the league and reach double-digit league wins. Elmwood opened the scoring against Woodmore starter Ross Wolford collecting their only run in the fourth on a single, steal of second, error and wild pitch. The Wildcats scored their only runs of the game in the sixth on a Matt Depner singled with one out. He stole second and came home on a double by sophomore Mason Beachler. Junior Tristan Roth's single moved Beachler to third where he scored on a sacrifice bunt by junior Connor Bringman. Elmwood threatened in each of its final two at-bats. In the sixth, the Royals had the bases loaded with two outs before the Wildcats got the last out on a ground out. In the seventh, an error and a ground out had a runner at second with two outs. The next Elmwood batter then hit a ball to the right side of the infield which was misplayed but WHS right fielder Logan Fonseca threw out the runner at home trying to score to end the game. Roth was 2-for-3 whie Beachler went 1-for-3 with a run scored and an RBI. Depner and senior John Williams had the other WHS hits. Wolford, a senior, tossed a complete game allowing four hits, one unearned while striking out six. The win is one more than the previous school record for a season set by the 2005, 2006 and 2007 teams. The win also gives the Wildcats 10 victories in Northern Buckeye Conference play, good for a second-place finish behind Genoa.
