BELOIT -- The return of baseball season is a reason for celebration for countless fans across the United States. For Beloit College head coach Dave DeGeorge, it’s a lifestyle.
DeGeorge’s Buccaneers began the 2015 season March 7 against fellow northerner Loras College (Iowa) in Florida, which is more than 1,250 miles from the friendly confines of The Ballpark at Strong Stadium.
But a ball field is a ball field to DeGeorge, whose Bucs started his 25th season as manager with an 8-4 record heading into this weekend’s scheduled games.
Adam Gregory ended the 2014 season on a nine-game hitting streak, including four hits in his first two NCAA Division III postseason contests, to help the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater win its second national baseball title.
The Edgerton High School graduate said last year’s magical finish is why he chose UW-W in the first place.
WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- Talyn Lewis is a fan of the television show “Law and Order: SVU” and wants to study criminal psychology in college.
“Softball is a huge mental game,” the Burlington High School junior standout said. ”You have to learn to accept most of the time you are going to fail. You’re not going to get on base every at bat, you’re not going to make every play; mistakes happen.
“With how competitive I am, I forget at times that you can’t always go 3 for 3 in a game. I think I have come a long way with my mental toughness and not getting so down on myself, but it is still something I can improve on.”
JANESVILLE MESSENGER -- Experience can’t be overrated, and a young Parkview High School softball team is counting on two juniors to carry it early and navigate a tough Rock Valley Conference schedule.
Ally Steinke was named the RVC South’s Coach of the Year last spring, leading the Vikings to a 10-6 record and second-place finish behind Beloit Turner in her fourth year in charge after two seasons as an assistant.
This year will be a challenge, so Steinke will rely on Madi Melms and Kortni Grenawalt, who made the league’s first team as an infielder and utility player, respectively.
