Lizarraga shines as Cougars dump J-Hawks

Sammy Lizarraga could have a big decision to make when it comes time for him to play college baseball in two years.

He's been an outstanding catcher since he was a little kid, but now he's developed into one of the top pitchers in the state as well.

Lizarraga tossed a two-hitter Monday and collected five RBIs as No. 3 Kennedy thumped Jefferson, 11-1, in five innings at Bill Herkelman Field.

A scout from Northern Illinois University clocked Lizarraga's fastball at 87 mph early in the game, a significant jump from his best heater last year as a sophomore. He struck out three straight batters in the fifth inning to end the game.

Lizarraga, a lanky 6-foot-4 right-hander, isn't sure what he'll do in college.

Saints claim MVC division title

The Xavier Saints cinched back-to-back Mississippi Valley Conference division softball championships under second-year coach Nikki Price Monday night, but it didn’t come easy against the upstart Washington Warriors.

“They definitely put us in some pressure situations,” said Price. “They’re going to be a headache for other teams in the years to come.”

For this night, however, experience trumped youth as the Saints swept the doubleheader at home, 5-3 and 9-4.

And on Senior Night it was fitting that the three Xavier players being honored had a hand in every one of their team’s rallies.

“We count on them,” Price pointed out. “They were a big part of our first-ever championship last year. And, obviously, they’re a big part this year again.”

David Kuhn wins Metro Spotlight Award

Marion junior David Kuhn is the winner of the Metro Spotlight Award for high school boys this week, the Metro Sports Report announced Sunday.

He tossed his first no-hitter in an 11-0 victory against Vinton-Shellsburg June 2. He struck out 12 batters and walked only two.

Kuhn twirled his second no-hitter three weeks later in an 8-0 triumph over Independence June 23. He whiffed nine batters in that contest with only one walk.

Kuhn has a 5-1 record and 1.66 ERA for Marion this season. He has struck out 51 batters in 38 innings, with 13 walks. Opponents are hitting only .143 against him.
