• Hey Trinity Wolfpack. So, we’ve really enjoyed covering you, and the community support has been fantastic. We’re going to keep it up, but will be changing it to part of SiskiyouYouth.com’s coverage.

    Logistically, it makes a lot more sense and should mean even more coverage.

    Over the next few days, the stories and photos on ShastaYouth will be copied over to SiskiyouYouth so we don’t lose that history. (more…)

    The Northern Section’s baseball championship Saturday at the Shasta College diamond started with a battle of defending champions, the Fall River Bulldogs and Hamilton Braves.

    Both teams were playing for consecutive section titles. The Bulldogs won last year’s Division-V crown and had visions of grabbing the D-IV belt as the top ranked team. In their way was the defending D-IV champion and second-seeded Braves.

    Pitching and defense dominated the early innings with Fall River carrying a one-run lead through four innings of play. The champions exchanged big blows in the fifth, leaving the score knotted at 5-5 down the stretch. The game went to the eighth inning where Braves took advantage of a couple Fall River errors to plate a run and held on for a 6-5 victory and second straight Division IV banner.

    “It’s a tough one to lose,” said Fall River coach Leo Estes. “In the end they (Hamilton) outplayed us, but not by much. We had our chances but couldn’t push that last run across and a couple errors at the end cost us.”

    “I’m still pretty happy with our season,” he added. “We were just one game short of our ultimate goal, but going undefeated for a league title and finishing with only one loss in the regular season, is a pretty good season.”

    Fall River senior Sterling Humphry started on the mound for the Bulldogs (25-2) and Senior Dylan Shippelhoute took the hill for the Braves (22-6).

    The game had a familiar start for the Bulldogs. Humphry struck out the side and the Bulldogs took an early lead. Jesse Lee singled singled to center and promptly stole second base. Brad Williams was hit by a pitch and the runners advanced on a passed ball. Lee beat the throw home on Klay Worthan’s grounder to short. Williams went to second base with the attention at the plate.

    Logan Johnston, a senior at Trinity High School, is a three-sport-athlete, playing football, basketball, and baseball. He’s always working hard to help his team be successful. Johnston, however, is not only dedicated to sports, but to his education as well. He has a grade point average of 4.29, and he will be attending Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo to major in Agriculture Business. He has been raising livestock since he was ten years old.

    Johnston is also into the big outdoors. He has been involved in Scouts for 13 years. He has been a Cub Scout, a Boy Scout, and most recently has become an Eagle Scout.

    When asked about his scouting experience, Johnston replied, “ The main thing it’s about is creating young leaders and responsible young adults that you can send out into the community. and know they’re going to be prepared for the challenges that lie ahead of them.”

    Concerning his future, Johnston speaks of his plans to graduate with a degree, and then apply to the CHP academy.

    “The reason I’m getting an AG business degree is it’ll give me options after graduation if I don’t make it to the academy. The degree will help my chances of advancement and make me look more desirable because they’ll know that I’m interested in working,” said Johnson

    Johnston has set some very strong goals that he’s already beginning to accomplish. He has received the The Coca Cola Scholarship, which will help him to reach these goals.

    “Thank God for Jamie Green. When I was applying for all my CSUs and colleges, Green said I should go for it (Coca Cola Scholarship),” said Johnston. So I tried it and put it in, as well as 50 other kids from the school, and 111,000 kids in the nation.”

    Johnston explained how the scoring system for the application worked. It took SAT scores, GPA, extra curricular activities participated in, leadership positions, and community service hours. The secondary applications were somewhat similar to the first, but had two portions; the first portion was like the first application where it took all the background information, but the second portion involved 3 essays.

    In Johnston’s first essay, the prompt was about an experience that had shaped his life. He talked about a childhood experience with his dad at work, which gave him the chance to be a leader.

    The second essay was about how family and community members influenced him. He explained how his family taught him to treat everyone with respect, no matter who they are. Johnston also wrote about things that are truthful to him, which was an important part of his essay. (more…)

    The American Christian Academy Eagles captured their second straight NSCIF Division VI baseball championship with a 15-7 win over the Greenville Indians at the Shasta College diamond last Saturday.

    The two-seed Indians battled to take leads in the top of the first and third innings, but the top ranked Eagles countered in the bottom frames to gain a 5-4 advantage. The Eagles kept tacking on and used a six-run fifth inning to take control of the game and fly to a 15-7 victory.

    The Eagle’s sophomore pitcher, Jackson Tuxhorn, got off to a precarious start. His first pitch of the game plunked Greenville’s lead off batter, who eventually came around to score with one out in the first inning. Tuxhorn finished the inning with a strikeout and ground out to shortstop, leaving the Indians with a 1-0 lead.

    Tuxhorn worked five innings on the mound as the pitcher of record fanning seven batters along the way. Senior Malachi May pitched two innings in relief giving up one run and striking out three.

    Dean Yingst got the Eagle offense started in the bottom of the first, with a one-out double to center. Coleman Petit singled to right to put runners on the corners. Yingst scored on a balk. Sawyer Seth hit a grounder to the right side, but the Indians committed an error on the play allowing Petit to score from second to give the Eagles a 2-1 lead. (more…)
