Gator sports update: baseball, track and field, and basketball All-Stars
Baseball splits four in Moses Lake
The Green River baseball team found a dry piece of Washington this past weekend when they traveled to Moses Lake to play four games with Thompsons River College and Big Bend Community College.
The Gators earned two close victories with a 7-6 win against Thompsons River on Saturday, followed by a 9-8 defeat of host school Big Bend on Sunday. Left-handed ace Braulio Torres-Perez earned the victory in the first game with a save by freshman Matt Seeley, while Cody Whitemarsh and Takako Tsujimura split duties for the second Gator victory. Sophomore shortstop Travis Johnson leads the team early in the season with five hits and four RBIs.
Track and Field debuts at Pacific Lutheran University
The 2014 men's and women's track teams got their feet wet (literally) to start the season by participating in the rain-soaked Pacific Lutheran University invite on Saturday afternoon. Times were slow, but spirits were high as two- and four-year colleges put forth their first competitive efforts. Freshman sprinter Sheila Piper finished seventh in the women's 100-meter and Manuel Cintron finished 13th in the men's 10,000. The team will now focus on their winter quarter final exams before taking to the track again in April.
Winston and Miles lead West All Stars Basketball team to victory
Green River sophomores Isaac Winston and Marquis Miles helped the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges Western Region All-Stars to a 97-95 victory over the Southern Region All Stars on Sunday afternoon at Pierce College.
Winston, a second-team all-West conference selection, led the Green River team in scoring with 453 points on the season. In his second season, Miles led the Gators with 172 rebounds.
