Cyclones Lose Both in Tough Triangular

With a busy start for the Cyclones already, they traveled to West Point for a tough triangular against Tekamah-Herman and Guardian Angels Central Catholic on August 23.


In their first game, the Cyclones had a slow start and allowed GACC to get on the board first.


The Cyclones rallied in the third inning where they scored three runs didn’t allow any runs from Guardian Angels.


But the Cyclones gave up two more runs in the fifth inning and just fell short, losing the game 4-5.


Assistant Coach Jenica Dietrich said, “We started off a little rough and allowed GACC to score the first inning. As a team we fought hard and minimized the errors after that and were able to keep it to a one run game. Overall, the team learned that we need to come out ready to play, and I think we have used that lesson in games since then.”


The Cyclones had to have a quick turn-around as they had another game to play. They would take on the Tekamah-Herman Tigers for the second game.


Again, the Cyclones let the Tigers get on the board first. The Cyclones struggled offensively and couldn’t string together any hits. Hwy 91 allowed the Tigers to score four runs one inning and five runs the next inning, losing the game 0-10.


Junior Payje Rayback said, “ I’m proud to see that we were able to battle against GACC, but we fell short by a run. The Tekamah game wasn’t so pretty, but we had some good at-bats.”


Assistant Coach Jenica Dietrich said, “We started off slow coming off the loss to GACC. Throughout the game, we were able to string some hits together, but just not enough to top Tekamah. Some of the younger girls were able to come through and get some experience, so that helped. In the end, we just weren’t able to out-hit Tekamah-Herman.”


The Cyclones’ record after these games is 3-5.
