Baseball Panthers knock off WEM PDF Print E-mail

The outlook was downright bleak for the NRHEG High School baseball team entering tournament play.

After a strong start, the Panthers had struggled much of the season, compiling a 6-11 record and drawing the No. 7 seed in the south half of Section 2AA, earning the right to play at Gopher Conference champion and No. 2 seeded WEM. Add to that the fact NRHEG had not won a playoff game since this year’s seniors were in sixth grade.

Easy win for the Bucs, right? Wrong.

The Panthers pulled off the upset, hammering the home team 10-4 Friday, May 22 at Waterville.

The Panthers advanced to the double-elimination portion of the tournament and play Tuesday, May 26 at Waseca. Win or lose, the Panthers play Friday, May 28 at the site of the higher seeded team.

When they started the season winning one of three games, you had to wonder what kind of year it would be for first-year head coach Coy Hupfeld and the NRHEG High School softball team.

Since then there’s been little doubt.

The Panthers ended the regular season last week with a pair of victories, extending their winning streak to six games. They’re 12-3 overall, 6-1 in the Gopher Conference, having won 11 of 12 since starting the season 1-2. They opened sub-section play Tuesday. The Panthers finished in a three-way tie for the conference championship.

The weight men and the distance relay guys have led the NRHEG boys’ track and field team all spring.

So it was no surprise they did so in the Gopher Conference meet at New Richland Tuesday, May 12.

Keith Maxon won the discus and the 4x800-meter relay team took gold as the Panthers finished fourth among seven squads. USC/AC won the title with 170 points, followed by Maple River with 144, Blooming Prairie 100, NRHEG 96, Medford 68, Bethlehem Academy 64 and WEM 26.

“It was a good showing by the boys tonight,” said NRHEG coach Duey Ferber. “We were pleased with a fourth-place finish.”
