  • The Pittsburg varsity tennis squad continued its solid play with a second place finish at the Valley Center Invitational on Saturday.
    Pittsburg finished behind only Newton with three second places among four components — Adrian McAfee in No. 2 singles, Jake Creech-Logan Benham No. 1 doubles and Micah Hashman-Nick Powers No. 2 doubles.
    “When we go to three finals, I was real happy about that,” Pittsburg head coach John Seal said. “We’re one of the smaller schools there. We’re at Fort Scott on Monday.”
    Pittsburg went a combined 9-4 on Saturday with Hank Cloninger 3-1, McAfee 2-1, Creech-Benham 2-1 and Hashman-Powers 2-1. Cloninger was the lone Pittsburg player to win his last match of the day and Pittsburg lost three finals matches to Newton.
    Team results: Newton 38, Pittsburg 29, Valley Center Purple 27, McPherson 19, Valley Center Gold 18, Emporia 18, Wichita Northwest 17, Conway Springs 9, Valley Center White 4, Douglass 3, Augusta 2.
    Earlier this week in JV action, Pittsburg defeated Neodesha 5-4 in a dual. Zach Dee and Jared Wilde each won singles matches and trailing 4-2, Pittsburg won the dual behind three straight doubles wins by Josh Dial-Aaron VanCleave, Will Jewett-Jared Wilde and Ryan Newcombe-Jack Patterson.
    High school baseball
    KANSAS CITY — Bishop Ward defeated St. Mary’s Colgan 17-7 in six innings Saturday afternoon.
    Youth baseball
    The sounds: Former players talking with each other and saying things like “I swear this field was bigger when we were younger.”
    The smells: hot dogs. Enough said.
    It must be the start of Little League baseball.
    The Cherokee Little League held its Opening Day on Saturday with three games, the introduction of all 96 players, a performance of the national anthem by Jake Wyckoff with honor guard provided by the USAF Auxiliary Civil Air Patrol USD 247 Southeast Composite Squadron.
    The 11- and 12-year olds started the games with a showdown between Ascanio’s and Trinity Steel and Pipe.
    Ascanio’s scored the first 12 runs of the game en route to a 12-6 win.
    Bryce Peterson led off the six-run second with a double and Tanner Craddock, Chad Lewis, Kohlton Kirby and Brett Malle added singles during the frame. Lewis plated a run with his single.
    Ascanio’s tacked on four more in the third, highlighted by a RBI double by Gage Oplotnik.
    Meanwhile, pitchers Craddock, Lewis and Malle blanked Trinity Steel and Pipe for the first three. Craddock struck out one and induced two groundball outs in the first. Lewis struck out two in the second. Malle struck out the side in the third.
    Down to its last at-bat, Trinity Steel and Pipe managed six runs. Paul Worsley and Avery Bass started the rally with singles and C.J. Peacock doubled home both Worsley and Bass to break the scoreless drought for TSaP. Hayden Wilson brought home a run on a 5-3 groundout and TSaP scored the other three runs in ways associated with youth baseball.
    Page 2 of 3 - The game was called because of time constraints after Trinity reached its six-run limit in the fourth.
    The Cherokee Little League 11-12s won state titles in 1982, 1999, 2007-2009 and 2011, and its 9-10s won state in 2005.
