Seniors eliminated

West Point 2nd baseman Cole Kreikemeier plants a tag on a Wayne baserunner during Sunday's Class B Area 5 baseball tourney game at Anderson Field.

For as many lows as West Point endured during Sunday’s elimination game at Anderson Field, they enjoyed just as many highs.

Unfortunately for West Point, the final emotion they felt was disappointment and the pain of being eliminated from the Class B Area 5 Senior baseball tourney.

Wayne, on the other hand, was able to soak in the joy of a dramatic-fashion win as they plated the game-winning run on a wild pitch in the bottom of the 7th inning to edge West Point, 16-15.

“That was a wild one. I thought we had it. I can’t believe how the game ended,” West Point coach Bruce Schlecht said. “Things just didn’t bounce our way. It was a tough one to lose.”

West Point finished the year with a 17-4 record. This marked the final game for five seniors: Bryant Rief, Cole Kreikemeier, Austin Streeter, Chase Streeter and Derek Petz.

“They all played a lot of baseball, and were key to to the success of West Point baseball,” Schlecht said. “Someone will have to step up and replace those guys because they were a great group.”

On top of that, administration is always pressuring them to maximize the number of readings. What this means is that they need to make those decisions faster and faster. Certain issues can arise, such as network or computer failure, which can hinder their ability to work and this is stressful to them since it makes it difficult for them to deliver what cost of precast concrete is expected of them. Edison radiology is a specially useful case if you want to understand things better. In some cases a fast reading is important for the patient's well being.
