SPASH BASEBALL SWEEPS DOUBLEHEADERS OVER WAUSAU EAST, LA CROSS CENTRAL



Zaleski Sports


STEVENS POINT – The Stevens Point Area Senior High baseball team had about as good of a weekend as it could have, sweeping a pair of doubleheaders to extend its winning streak to six.


SPASH defeated Wausau East 9-2 and 17-1 in Wisconsin Valley Conference action on Friday, and took care of La Crosse Central 11-8 and 9-1 in a pair of nonconference games Saturday. Both doubleheaders were at Bukolt Park.


Logan Schulfer struck out 11 in five innings, and had two singles and a home run in Game 1 against Wausau East.


The Panthers rolled in Game 2, scoring runs in each of their five at-bats, including eight in the third inning.


Kenny Schultz picked up the win, striking out seven in three innings.


SPASH saw a 7-0 lead evaporate in the opening game against Central as the River Hawks put up four runs in both the fourth and fifth innings.


The Panthers regained the lead with four in the bottom of the fifth and held on from there.


Jake Sankey, Schultz and Gavin Przbelski each had two hits for Stevens Point, with Sankey driving in three runs.


Schulfer went 4-for-4 with two doubles and four RBIs in the Game 2 rout on Saturday.


Stevens Point (12-2, 9-1 Wisconsin Valley Conference) plays a doubleheader at D.C. Everest on Thursday to finish its WVC schedule. The Panthers have to win one of the two to clinch their third-straight WVC championship, and 13th since 2005.
