Mason suffers its second loss of the season against East Central


Tuesday April 8, 2008
When scheduling games outside of conference play, Coach Brian Castner always tries to find opponents that are challenging. East Central from Indiana is no exception. With two strong pitchers, a solid defense and a good mix of batters the East Central team came to Mason prepared to test the Comets on their home field.
Colleen Reinoehl suffered her first loss of the season, allowing 6 hits and had 6 strikeouts.
The Comets started rallying in the 5th inning with a single by DJ Engelman that brought in Christin Miller and L’Ana Jackson.
Realizing the Comets were about to capitalize, the EC team quickly replaced starting sophomore pitcher Eckstein with senior hurler Purdue to try and stop the Comets offensive attack. On the next at bat, a good heads up play by the East Central defense caught two Mason Comet runners off guard and the Comets managed to get caught in a double run-down situation ending the inning.
East Central had a second scoring opportunity in the 7th bringing in two more runs to end the game at a 5-2 loss for the Comets.
When asked about the loss, Coach Brian Castner responded, “Every team we will face in Tennessee will be tough competition. The loss we suffered today brought up situations we need to work on and in the long run that will help us to prepare for this weekend and the rest of the season in the GMC,” coach Brian Castner explained.
The Comets face GMC opponent Oak Hills on Wednesday and then have one day of rest before heading out of town for the Gibbs Invitational in Knoxville, Tennessee.
Offensive notes: Offensively the Comets had 8 hits: with Jackson 2-4, Wills 2-3 and players Miller, Roark, Engelman and Allen all contributing one hit.

Alcoa HS

won 7-5 9-3 5-0

One of the more exciting games was against Alcoa where the Comets saw themselves down 5-1 with not much time left on the clock. Mason once again proved that the Comets know how to come from behind.

After a controversial call at home, the Comets were left with two outs, bases loaded and were still behind 5-2. McCall Sheppard connected with a 3 run double to tie the game and DJ Engelman followed up with her first HR of the Comets season to cinch the win. Offensively Jackson was 2-3, Sheppard 3-3 3RBIs, Engelman 2-2 2RBI, Rye 1-2 with Pursel 2 walks, and Allen 1 walk.

The Mason Comets came back strong after being off on Thursday to have a 5-4 win against the Fairfield Indians. The Comets bats came alive early scoring 2 runs in the first inning. Christin Miller started off with a hit for the Comets and came in to score when L’Ana Jackson hit a hard shot triple down the first base line. McCall Sheppard followed with a ground out single to score Jackson.
In the 4th inning the Comets got on the scoreboard again as centerfielder Sheppard wrapped a single and DJ Engelman and Katie Wills followed with back-to-back doubles. Wills scored on a ground out by Katie Mountsier to bring the Comets up 5-0.
The Indians found themselves in scoring position after getting the first two batters on base with walks in the 6th inning. An error by the Comets allowed the Indians to bring in the first run and then follow up with a second score on groundout making the score 5-2.
With two outs in the 7th inning and 2 base runners, Fairfield was able to score again on a double by Fairfield’s Megan Lockhart. Mason Comet McCall Sheppard made a great effort to come in for the catch in Left Center but was unable to hang onto it an two Fairfield runners crossed the plate.

BOX SCORE

4/21 Middletown won 7-3 13-5 8-2
4/22 Lakota East won 1-0 13-6 8-3


Mason faced cross-town rival Lakota East today in a game that left the Comets wanting a few more innings to push the runs across the plate. The Lakota East pitcher, Mills, did a good job of mixing up the pitches and using everything in her arsenal to help stymie the Comets offense.
At the end of 4 innings of play the score was 0-1 when the Eagles scored on a double by Lakota’s Lafferty.
Although both teams had base runners, no other runs scored. Mason had their best chance in the 7th inning. MaCall Sheppard reached on an error and DJ Engelman followed up with a hard hit shot down the line that the 3rd baseman could not handle. With runners in scoring position and no outs, East decided to switch pitchers with Ballinger taking the circle. Katie Wills laid down the sac bunt to bring Sheppard and Engelman one step closer to home plate. Pinch hitter Linsey Shreve hit a hard ball to the shortstop. The shortstop fired the ball high to the catcher at home for a close play at the plate. The umpire called the runner out, but the call was a controversial because the Mason coach thought the runner got under the tag. During the confusion at the plate, another Mason runner was declared out for abandoning the base path, which ended the game.
Christin Miller took the loss for the Comets in the circle. The Comets are regrouping to come back harder against Sycamore and Fairfield later this week.

Lady Comets Conclude Fantastic 2008 Campaign

It didn't end the way they wanted, but the Mason Girl's Softball Team put together another season of memories.  Appearing in consecutive state semi-finals is an awesome accomplishment that few teams can brag about. 

On Friday the Comets faced a pitcher that had only lost once this season (27-1).  Mason had lost last year to the same Elyria team by a score of 2-1.  On Saturday Elyria was beaten in the State Finals 1-0 (10 innings) to eventual State Champion North Canton Hoover.

The Comets got their runs in the top of the fourth when Miller led off with a single. One out later McCall Sheppard singled to right center field and then stole second. Wills then hit a screamer through the shortstop's legs allowing both Miller and Sheppard to score cutting the lead to 7-2.  Mason didn't get any closer as Elyria added 4 more to their total. 

The Comets will return with a bevy of experienced underclassman to hopefully compete for another opportunity at a state championship.

3rd out of 14 teams

 

6th out of 16 teams

This weekend the Comet men had two meets. THE VARSITY B athletes were at Lebanon for the Lebanon Relays, and the Varsity A group was in Columbus for the big Hilliard Davidson Invite. The B group took 3rd overall behind Middletown and Lebanon, whereas the boys at the A meet in Columbus were up against great competition and took 6th overall. Standout performances were produced by Andrew Gaylan Mann at the Lebanon meet in the 300 Hurdles and the 110 hurdles. We also had a great showing from Randall Robinson in the sprint events. At the Hilliard meet the standouts were, Brian Atkinson in the 200 Dash (3rd place) and Naman Rakheja in the 400 dash (placing 2nd overall) Along with our Pole Valuters who were led by Steven Butsch. Our relays did well also, taking several 3rds and 4ths, but finding the 1st spot very elusive. The team is off to a great start and looks to do quite well this year in the Coaches Classic this week.

The highlights were, Naman Rakheja in the 400 meter dash took 4th place. The 4x400 relay took 3rd place. Brian Atkinson took 4th place in the 200 dash, and so to did our 4x200 relay. The strongest showing was in the 4x800 and the 800 where we were winners in both. The 800 was won by Brendan Caprio, who also anchored the 4x800 relay! The team placed 2nd overall and looks to be a very strong team this year.

The team did well, having several strong showings, but the teams from Centerville and Wayne proved too tough. We held our own only finishing a few points back, but were able to only win 2 events on the night, the 4x400 relay and High Jump. This relay was quite fun, as it broke a longstanding school record, and did so against some strong competition. The team also looked very good in the Long Jump and the 4x1600 relay, both squads also placed second. Overall, the team is coming along nicely. We are working for fill a few holes, but right now the team looks as strong as it has looked in years. Great senior leadership and a strong distance core has allowed us to enjoy some very early success.

After returning from a mild injury, he looked great and wowed the crowd with this performance. The team also got good output from Taylor Celestin who racked up points in the 110 and 300 meter hurdles, along with once again Brendan Caprio who was part of the 4x800 squad, 2nd place in the 800 and part of the 3rd place 4x400 team.
