Multiple Teams · Baseball Sweeps Tecumseh

The Hornets had a double header tonight against the Indians from Tecumseh.  The Hornets would sweep Tecumseh by the scores of 3-0 and 8-0.


In Game #1 Michael Hendrickson would pitch a complete game gem with 13 strikeouts.  After the game, head coach Scott Thiesen had this to say about Hendrickson:  “Michael was ahead of the count all game long,“ Saline coach Scott Theisen said. “His fastball was very effective over seven innings and has gotten off to a good start this season. This is as well as I’ve seen him pitch early in the season because usually he gets better as the season progresses.”


In Game #2 Brett Nearing pitched all 5 innings as the Hornets would mercy the Indians 8-0.  Nearing only allowed 3 hits and this win would give the Hornets back to back shutouts.  In the second game, Josh Smith tripled in the bottom of the second and the triple would clear the bases for 3 RBI’s.


The Hornets are on the road April 17th against the Grizzlies of Ypsilanti.

It was 65* at game time of the first game of the season.  It was 45* and the end of the second.  The Hornets opened their 2014 campaign against Class B defending State Champions and SEC White foe the Tecumseh Indians.  The Hornets are extremely talented with versatility at just about every position, but regardless of talent the Indians would test the Hornets.


In Game #1 Saline would defeat the Indians by the score of 4-1.  The Hornets would have their ace on the mound in Laura Vaccaro.  Saline was led by Junior Sam Bruley who went 2 for 3 and scored 3 runs.  Vacarro went 2 for 2 and walked once.  Kaylee Harmon, Angel Schilke and Olivia Darmos all had one hit each.  Vacarro picked up the win.

In Game #2 freshman Riley Hecklinski would get the nod.  Her control early would lead to a walks and a high pitch count early and Tecumseh would jump out to a 5-0 lead at the end of the 4th inning.  Saline would only manage 3 hits by the end of the 4th.  Laura Vaccaro came back in the game to finish it off.  In the bottom of the 7th the Hornets would battle back and battle hard.


The 7th would start with Angel Schilke taking a base on balls.  Riley Hecklinski would flyout to center.  Bond, Layne Bond would would reach first on an infield hit.  Brooke Robison would take a called third strike and it looked pretty bleak at that point.  Ashley Harmon and Kaylee Harmon would draw back to back walks.  Kaylee’s walk would score Schilke and leave the bases loaded for Bruley.  Sam would draw the inning’s 4th walk (3rd in a row) and that would force in Bond making the score 5-2, bases loaded, for Vaccaro.  Vaccaro came through with a base hot that would score Harmon & Harmon.  Bruley would advance to third.  Runners at the corners, 2 out for Katie Alexander.  Alexander was having a solid day and she hit a very hard ground ball to third and that would end the game.  Final 5-4.

Multiple Teams · Girls Soccer and Their Spring Trip

The Varsity Girls Soccer team traveled to Destin, Florida over spring break.  The team had played well before the break and as we all know the weather was not great.  The team had practiced indoors quite a bit and really had not gotten acclimated to one another and being outdoors.


Saline’s Head Coach Dana Restrick had this to say:

The team traveled to Destin, FL.  We played on a beautiful grass field in a local sports complex.  We trained for 3.5-4 hours each day we were down there.  This trip included practices, team bonding activities, and lots of fun.  We all stayed in a house together that was about a mile from the field, and 2 blocks from the ocean.  After our morning practices, we typically ate lunch and headed straight to the amazing beach with turquoise water and white sand.  We saw dolphins playing in the water, a couple hundred yards off shore, and even saw a shark swim by!

All in all, it was an incredible trip that brought us closer as team, made us better soccer players, and got us into some great sunny weather!”


The Varsity Girls start a string of away games starting tomorrow night as they travel to Troy Athens and then on the 17th as they travel to Tecumseh.

A humbling trip with dedicated students, admirable leaders, and a resilient group of Haitians who remind us to enjoy the everyday beauty and hope of our world community.

With your help we were able to provide each family at least four bars of soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste, and one mirror. Extreme thanks to the SHS French Club’s donation of five boxes of school supplies. These pencils, pens, crayons, markers, and paper will prepare students in the Pomme Mountain area for learning in a new school they hope to build this year.
