VARSITY BEATS CONNER IN SEEDING GAME

On April 13, the Ryle varsity squad faced off against the Conner Cougars in the second of Ryle's three district seeding games and came away with an exciting 3-2, 8-inning win.  The Raiders had lost a seeding game earlier this season to Boone County by the score of 9-5.

Starter Max Lonnemann went the distance for the Raiders, picking up his second win of the season.  Jarod Billig went 2 for 4 and knocked a home run to lead the Raiders' hitting attack.  Marshall Rich singled in the game-winning run in the top of the 8th inning and Lonnemann held the Cougars at bay in the bottom of the inning to seal the win. 



JV ON 3-GAME WIN STREAK

Since dropping an ugly 15-10 game versus South Oldham on April 11 - a game in which the Raiders led 10-2 after 4 innings - the JV team has put together a solid 3-game win streak.  Solid starting pitching and timely hitting have been key to the wins.

After losing to South Oldham, the Raiders redeemed themselves in the second game of the afternoon doubleheader, beating Boone County 13-1 in a 5-inning run rule game.  Starting pitcher Drew Jackson was dominant, keeping Boone hitters at bay with a solid fastball and sharp curveball.  The Raiders scored six runs in the 3rd inning to break open the game.  Ryle collected 13 hits in the game, led by Drew Turner, Logan Seimer, and Drew Demler, who each had three hits.  Turner's three base knocks drove in a total of six Ryle runs.  

On April 13, the JV team faced the Conner Cougars for the second time this season.  The Raiders won the earlier matchup by the score of 9-5.   Noah Gayhart got his first start of the season on the mound and went 4 1/3 solid innings, allowing only two earned runs and picking up the win.  He was relieved by Thomas Spiritosa, who was lights out in his 2 2/3 innings of work, and the Raiders again knocked off the Cougars, this time by the score of 11-5.

On April 15, Ryle faced the always-tough Covington Catholic Colonels.  Ryle ace Drew Demler got the start and delivered an impressive pitching performance, throwing 6 1/3 innings and allowing only 4 hits and 3 runs (2 earned).  A close 1-1 game was broken open in the Raiders' 5th inning when they scored 4 runs.  Five Raiders had base hits in the inning.  Ryle tacked on 2 more runs in the 6th inning to go up 7-2.  Cov Cath mounted a comeback in the 7th inning, scoring 4 times, and had the tying run on base when reliever Andrew Huff recorded the final out on a fly ball to left field.  Turner contributed three hits to lead the Raiders' offense, while Huff, Jackson, and Josh Green each had two hits.

FRESHMAN UNDEFEATED SEASON CONTINUES

Not even the April monsoon season could slow down the Freshman Raiders and their perfect season (to date).  The Raiders were forced to cancel an entire week of games due to heavy rains, having last played on April 2 when they beat Boone County 13-12 in a 5-inning, weather-shortened game.  They were finally able to get back on the diamond on April 11 when they faced off against district rival Cooper.

In that game, the frosh came out on top by the score of 7-4, thanks to a solid starting pitching performance by Evan Webster, who went 4 innings and allowed only three hits and 1 earned run.  He was supported by some outstanding defensive play by outfielders Nick McClanahan and Jacob Tarvin, who gunned down Jaguar runners at the plate.  Tarvin was also the hitting star of the game, going 3 for 3 with a double and 2 stolen bases.  This followed up his 2 for 2 hitting performance against Boone.

On April 14, Ryle matched up against yet another district foe in the Conner Cougars.  Once again, the men in orange and black came out on top, winning by the score of 6-2.  Starter McClanahan (4 innings) and reliever Christian Scanlon (3 innings) combined for a 2-hitter.  Tarvin was again red-hot at the plate, going 4 for 4.

On April 15, Ryle ran their record to an impressive 8-0, defeating St. Henry for the second time this season, this time by the score of 16-10.  Ryle found themselves down 10-4 at one point in the game before rallying for the win.  Hitting leaders included: Tarvin (3B, RBI), Blake Burnett (hit, 2 runs, RBI), Drew Fulmer (2-2, RBI), and Mitch Toepfert (2B, 2 RBI).   

The Raiders put their perfect season on the line when the meet Highlands on April 16.

FRESHMAN START SEASON IN IMPRESSIVE FASHION

The Freshman Raiders have come out of the gate strong in 2015, winning their first three games and beating some solid competition.  The Raiders started out the season defeating perenially-tough Cov Cath by the score of 5-4, then followed that with a 9-5 win over Newport Catholic and a 15-2 thrashing of Dixie Heights.  Jacob Tarvin, Christian Scanlon, Drew Fulmer, and Joseph Truitt have led they way on the mound so far.  Key hitters to date have been Kaleb Alstott, Sean Matthews, Max Inabnit, and Truitt.  The Raiders will put their undefeated season on the line on Monday, March 31, at home against St. Henry.

DEMLER & JACKSON COMBINE FOR NO-NO IN JV WIN

The JV Raiders hit the win column on a cold and blustery day on March 24, defeating Newport Central Catholic by the score of 2-0.  Ryle scored one run in the first inning via a timely two-out RBI single by Drew Jackson and that run was more than enough offensive behind the combined no-hitter thrown by Drew Demler and Jackson.  Demler started and went 4 innings, striking out the side in the first inning.  Jackson pitched the final three frames and closed out the game with three strikeouts in the 7th inning.  NCC had only one runner reach second base.  The Raiders added an insurance run in the 4th inning with the help of an NCC error.  The Raiders played solid overall defense in support of Demler and Jackson, with RF Max Vickers turning in several nice grabs in RF.  The Raiders record now stands at 1-1 after an opening day 7-6 loss to Highlands.

RYLE JV IN AUTISM AWARENESS TOURNEY

On Saturday, April 18, 2015, the JV Raiders will be participating in the 3rd Annual "Drew Michels Autism Awareness Tournament" at Covington Catholic High School.  The tournament is honor of Drew Michels, the son of Cov Cath JV Coach John Michels and his wife, Emily.  Drew was diagnosed with autism in 2010 at the age of 4.  The goal of the tournament is two-fold:  to raise awareness of a disorder that now affects 1 in 68 children and to raise money for the charity, 'Act Today For Military Families.'  This national organization provides treatment services and support for military families with autistic children.   In its first two years, the tournament has raised over $30,000. You can help this worthwhile cause by purchasing an item at the tournament or making a donation directly to the charity.  Please visit the website www.dppinc.org for more information about the tournament, autism, and this outstanding organization.
