BONNERS FERRY — Priest River’s baseball team had a short run in the postseason this year, losing its first game at districts to Timberlake 12-2, then losing 9-7 to Kellogg, a team they had recently swept in a home doubleheader. Head coach Mark Schultz said the Spartans’ game against Timberlake started off well but got derailed in the second inning when the Tigers scored six runs. “That has been our season, giving up one or two big innings.” The Spartans’ big bat came from Anthony Storro, who went 3-3 at the plate. “Anthony really ripped the ball,” Schultz said.

In the Spartans’ last-chance game versus Kellogg, they did much better, losing by only two runs, 9-7. The Wildcats got off to a quick 5-0 lead in two innings. “We dug a hole early with our mistakes,” said Schultz. However, the Spartans wiped out that lead in the third and fourth innings. In the fifth, Kellogg regained a one-run lead, which they stretched to two runs in the sixth inning. Hunter Hartwig led the team offensively by going 2-4 at the plate with two RBIs. Schultz said, “I’m proud of how the guys fought back, if we could have gotten one more hit the outcome could have been different.”

He added, “Our team played until the last out. These young men battled all season and I can’t say enough about them. Having a young team, our seniors did a great job in leadership, our seniors will be missed, Anthony Storro, Hunter Hartwig, Dylan Patterson, and Jordon Simcox.”
