Wheaton High School
Northwood High School
WOW!! The gladiators came out tonight on a very special night. Four terrific seniors were honored for their hard work, dedication, and team play throughout their years at Northwood. Seniors Calvin Stinson, Darrin Florin, Matt Sampson, and Eli Brent were a big part of Northwood baseball and we’re sad to see them go.
As for the game, hitting was contagious Monday with everyone in the starting line-up getting at least one hit. Senior Darrin Florin and Calvin Stinson each got 3 hits, while Senior Matt Sampson stole 6 bases. Senior Eli Brent showed terrific hustle and speed through out the game.
Junior Zach Bridwell hit a monster triple that was at least a 350 foot shot to dead center. Freshman Mendi Kabillio and sophomore brother, Eli Kabillio also contributed with some timely hitting.
Defensively, freshman catcher Wilver Salmeron was unbelievable behind the plate, holding the Wheaton Knight runners at bay on the bases.
