16U Blue Wins HCYP Summer Clash Gold Division

Congratulations to the Raiders 16u Blue team for winning the 16/15u Gold Division 2019 HCYP Summer Clash tournament over the July 4th weekend. The club went a perfect 3-0 on Sunday by scoring 30 runs and allowing only 6 earned runs during the run to the championship against three strong teams.

Every single member of the team contributed towards this championship, but there are many highlights: EJ Sweet’s three run 380 ft homer to left center in game 1 set the offensive tone for the day, but 4.1 innings of no hit relief by Jack Kearney and Cooper Haberern in game 1 sealed the comeback thriller win. In game 2, doubles from Haberern and Matt Wills and triples from Conor Edwards and Connor Leard highlighted a 12-hit onslaught. The championship game was led by a Jason Van Tine complete game gem, backed up by a stingy defense and a double by Brad Wolfe and a triple by Johnny Welch. Clean up hitter Cooper Haberern was 8 for 10 with 5 RBI’s over the three games.

"I love this team. They have worked hard since January to improve and the results are in. Baseball fans should watch all the kids on this roster – this group of rising juniors and seniors will be in the Howard County and MIAA high school baseball headlines for next two years” commented 16U Blue Head Coach Jeff Wills.
