Sports Recap (May 11-May 18)
On Monday, the Varsity Baseball team traveled to Bishop O’Connell for the first round of the VISAA State Tournament. The Knights had a 17-9 record, and the Cadets held a 13-9 record. The game proved to be a great night for the Cadets, with an upset win of 7-2 over the Knights. Sophomore Greg Ryan went 2-3 at bat, along with Senior Reece Yeargain going 4 for 4. The team came together and put on a great performance. The Cadets will face Paul VI at 4:30pm on Friday for the next round of playoffs. Come out to Shepherd Stadium to cheer on the Cadets!
This past week the Cadets took on the Steward Spartans and Blue Ridge School. On May 11, the Cadets traveled to Richmond Country Club to face the Spartans, and the Cadets took their 6th loss of the year. On this past Friday, May 13, the Cadets traveled up I-64 to take on Barons at Greene Hills Club. Benedictine had a great match, and they came out on top to earn their 4th win of the year. Dylan Taylor shot even par to lead Cadets to victory. The Cadets have struggled a bit this year but look to rebound next year with new freshman.
Last weekend, the Benedictine track team competed in a track meet at John Paul the Great. Many of our Cadets did a fantastic job, placing in many events. Some of the Cadets who placed in their events were Caleb Grimes who got 3rd place in both the 100 and 200 meter dash, and Benito Speight who got 4th in the 100 and got 2nd in long jump for a season best of 21 feet. The 4x100 team got 1st place and had a season-best time. Lastly, Isaiah Timmons and Ellis Brooks both had season bests in shot put, getting 2nd and 3rd. The Cadets came in 4th place as a team.
The JV Baseball team had an eventful week. They faced tough competition from Covenant, Trinity, Central Virginia Homeschool, and Hanover as they attempted to finish out their season on a high note. On Monday, they faced Covenant, where they would lose a close battle late in the game, giving up the go-ahead run in the last inning. Trinity would be a similar story, errors late in the game led to the Cadets downfall. Sophomore pitcher, Tyler St. Clair came out strong to pitch the entire game and was able to hold the Titan’s offense to a low score. Friday, the Cadets came out swinging. After rain cancelled their scheduled game last week, they made up the game in a double header. Benedictine would take both games and move onto Monday when they played Hanover High School. The team unfortunately fell to the Hawks, but braved them well. After falling to the Hawks, the Cadets bring their season to a close and look forward to next season.
