Nathan Meador, an MVP Student, comes thru for FSHS!
Nathan Meador
By Andrew Manzo

It looks as though the high school spring sports season will be able to start anew this week. Although, it will likely be under cooler temperatures than all of us would like.
This is officially spring, right? I guess Mother Nature didn’t get the memo this year. I mean, after we had our two or three days of spring weather, it was like she said, “well that’s enough for now.”
Here’s my memo to her: Bring on the warmth of sunshine.
Last time I checked, it was perfectly normal to have temperatures above 50-degrees this time of year. But below-freezing temperatures and snow? That’s a little bit too much.
However, if anything, it’s supposed to rain in April. And we got plenty of that last week, to say the least, as the majority of games were washed out from last Tuesday through Saturday.
The only team to play in that five-day stretch was the West Fairmont baseball squad. Saturday, the Polar Bears improved to 2-0 with another come-from-behind victory, this time against Nicholas County.
Head coach Steve Naternicola and the Bears entered the seventh inning with a 3-2 lead. Then the Grizzlies gained their first advantage with two runs in the top of the inning for a 4-3 edge, needing only three outs for the win.
Still, as was the case against Morgantown in the season opener, West Fairmont found its magical touch in the bottom of the seventh.
Starting pitcher Nathan Meador helped his own cause with a two-out triple, beginning the rally. Meador crossed the plate when Joseph Tatta hit the ball to the left side. The ball was booted by the shortstop, allowing Meador to score and keeping the Bears alive.
With Tatta on the move, Steve Tennant dropped a looper into centerfield for a single. In an attempt to gun down Tatta at third, the ball was overthrown, while finding its way into the dugout. That’s when Tatta was awarded to go home for the game-winning run.
Meador pitched a complete-game six-hitter, while needing only 60 pitches to record the win.
“The kids were wanting to get out and play a game before the week ended,” Naternicola said. “We’re hoping to get more games in this week.”
