BONNERS FERRY — Priest River lost the first game of districts to Timberlake 12-2 here May 8. Priest River’s pitching staff gave up nine walks, and the Tigers capitalized on their on-base opportunities by adding eight stolen bases. Anthony Storro had the hot bat for Priest River, but it was not enough to carry the day.

Prior to districts, the Spartan baseball team wrapped up a game against Timberlake that had begun on May 3 but gotten rained out after the fourth inning. Head coach Mark Schultz said, “We held them and came to bat, single by Dylan Patterson, walk by Anthony Storro, single by Hunter Hartwig, hit by pitch by Jordon Simcox, unfortunately we didn’t get a big hit after that, we scored one run and if we could of got a hit it would of made the game interesting. We did a good job coming into the game and understanding the situation, we got runners on base, just couldn’t get that hit.” The loss dropped the Spartans to 2-10 on the season heading into districts.

Previously the team had lost at Bonners Ferry 14-1. Schultz pointed out that against a team like Bonners, the Spartans just couldn’t afford to make errors -- but they made seven errors. “Our pitching did a good job of making them put the ball in play, we need to make the play. Offensively we need to more consistent throughout our lineup. In the 5th, So. Gavin Rodgers hit a single and later that inning Sr. Hunter Hartwig scored him with an RBI single.”
