Nathan Gabryszwski started on the hill for the Cardinals. The freshman was limited to two innings (predetermined), and gave up one run on four hits and two walks. He stuck out three. Ryan Cawthon (1-0) earned the win for LU with 2 2/3 scoreless innings pitched. The senior allowed only one hit and struck out three. Tied at 1-1, Chaneng Varela ripped a double through the left side that scooted under a diving shortstop and rolled deep into left center field. His double scored Trey Silvers — who reached on a one-out walk — from first base and put the Cardinals (29-21) up 2-1. Chad McKinney kept it going with a double that banged off the left field wall and scored Varela, and moved to third base on back-to-back walks to Phil Ingram and Vincent Dellocono.Following the two walks that loaded the bags, Grant DeVore and Reid Russell each drew bases-loaded walks to make it 5-1 before Bryndan Arredondo unloaded on another wall-banging double that cleaned the bags and made it 8-1. Lamar sports informationBATON ROUGE, La. — It was a well-pitched ball game on both sides to start, but Lamar baseball broke through with two outs in the seven-run fifth inning and put the game away when the Cardinals defeated Southern 10-1 Wednesday afternoon in a non-conference, midweek tilt.
Mission Hills Mayor Rick Boeshaar’s history of public service started early in his life — he earned his Eagle Scout rank from the Boy Scouts of America as a high schooler.Now, Boesharr and a group of area Eagle Scouts are trying to make sure Eagle Scouts throughout the region can stay in touch long after earning the group’s highest achievement. He recently penned a message to Heart of America Council members encouraging them to register in the group’s alumni database:Once an Eagle Scout, Always an Eagle Scout! Right!?! So why are we calling this an Alumni Association? Because we want to reach out to people who were Scouts and who may not be active right now. We also want to stay in touch with Scouts who may be involved in a Troop now, but have earned their Eagle rank and may be off to college or the military or a job in the next couple years and would not be as active then. The Alumni Association will be a source of information about what is going on in Scouting and a way to stay in touch with friends. We hope you will click on the link to join. It costs nothing! We will post our events and you may choose to attend or not. There are over 35,000 Eagle Scouts living in the Kansas City area. You probably know several of them. Send them a post, or a text, or some other shout out and ask them to join with you!Scouts can register on the alumni page here.
