Sargent wins twice for Wolf Pack
Here is a breakdown on Carson Valley athletes who have graduated from high school and now compete in college:
KALI SARGENT — University of Nevada, 2015 Douglas graduate — Sargent celebrated her debut for the Wolf Pack in a big way last Friday when she pitched seven sterling innings to earn credit for a complete game 4-3 victory against Southern Illinois at the Southeastern Louisiana Lion Classic in Hammond, La. The sophomore right-hander only needed to throw 76 pitches to finish with a three-hitter, to go with four strikeouts and two walks. “Sargent really stepped up in game two and gave us the boost we needed to get that win,” coach Josh Taylor told the Nevadawolfpack.com website. “Good defense and timely hitting took care of the rest.” Sargent came back on Saturday to pitch a complete game five-hitter and no walks in a 1-0 shutout of Nicholls State. She worked out of a sixth-inning jam, retiring the side on two ball balls with runners on second and third. Sargent pitched more three innings in relief and absorbed the loss on Sunday when Army rallied to knock off the Wolf Pack, 6-5. She allowed three runs on three hits to go with six strikeouts and no walks. The Wolf Pack face BYU today at 12:15 p.m. at the DeMarini Classic in Las Vegas.
KELLY SONNEMANN — Humboldt State University (Arcata, Calif.), 2014 Douglas graduate — Humboldt State had its four-game series at home against Chico State rained out last weekend and the series has been rescheduled for March 21-22. The Lumberjacks were named No. 1 in this week’s National Fastpitch Coaches Association Top 25.
KALEB FOSTER — University of Nevada, 2015 Douglas graduate: Foster has been announced as the starting catcher for the Wolf Pack coming into their season opener today, according to the Nevadawolfpack.com website. Foster made 27 appearances as a freshman last season for the Wolf Pack, who reached the 2016 Mountain West championship game under first-year head coach T.J. Bruce. Nevada plays its opener today at 4:30 p.m. (PDT) against Sam Houston State in Huntsville, Texas. The three-game series continues Saturday and Sunday and then Nevada plays again on Monday against Baylor in Waco, Texas. The Wolf Pack have been picked to finish third in the Mountain West preseason coaches poll with a roster that includes 12 letter winners, four starting position players and one weekend starter from a team that went 37-24 overall during the 2016 season.
JACKSON KETRON — Midland University (Fremont, Neb.), 2012 Douglas graduate: The 6-foot, 180-pound right-hander pitched one complete inning, allowed one run on no hits, and was credited with the win for the Warriors’ come-from-behind 9-8 verdict over Louisiana State University-Shreveport last Friday. The Warriors scored three runs in their last at-bat in the bottom of the seventh inning to win the game.
CORRYNE MILLETT — College of San Mateo (San Mateo, Calif.), 2015 Douglas graduate: Millett scored 28 points (shooting 13-for-17 from the field) and had 15 rebounds (10 on the offensive end) Wednesday in San Mateo’s 77-58 loss at home against Skyline. The score was tied 31-all at halftime.
