Baseball sits at .500 despite playing in frigid temps

The Dexter Men’s baseball team is 2-2 over its first four games, braving the rough weather and surviving four or five cancellations.

In the season opener on April 5, Dexter split a doubleheader at Canton. The Dreads lost the first game 9-1 before winning the second game 8-2.

“In the first game, we just couldn’t hit or field at all,” junior infielder David Kreske said. “In the second game, we jumped on them early and got two runs quick and just continued from there.”

On Tuesday, Dexter split a doubleheader against Bedford. The Dreads took the opening game 2-0 but lost the second game 8-6.

“[Ryan Schoch] threw a lot of strikes and kept the ball down in the zone in the first game,” Kreske said. “They didn’t get many hits. In the second game, we just didn’t do well pitching-wise. They got a bunch of dinkers and we had a bunch of errors. We gave it to them.”

Up Next: The Dreads have a doubleheader against Milford tonight beginning at 4 p.m.

Women’s Soccer outscores Lincoln and Chelsea by a combined score of 14-0

In the beginning of the week, the Dexter women’s soccer team played Lincoln. They won the first half by a mercy by scoring 8 goals – the other team scored zero. It was clear who was the better team, considering they only played one half. The girls stayed on their level and didn’t drop to the level of the other team.

On Wednesday, the Dreads played Chelsea, Dexter’s biggest rival. Dexter scored early in the game, which made they energetic — their morale was high. Through great teamwork, the girls beat Chelsea 6-0. Senior Sammy Corcoran had a hat trick, scoring half of the goals.

Next Up: Dexter (2-0) hosts Tecumseh at noon on Saturday.
