Game Recap

Dux Win MHSAA District Quarterfinal

The Zeeland West Varsity baseball team won their MHSAA District Quarterfinal for the second consecutive year as they shutout Kelloggsville High School 7-0. The Dux were sharp early as the Rockets went down 1-2-3 in the top of the first inning. Zeeland West would go on and score four runs in the bottom of the first inning as Shane DeJonge knocked in runs number three and four with a two-RBI double. The Dux would add another run in the fourth on a sacrifice fly by Blake Haveman and then would score two more in the sixth on a 2-RBI single by Mason Kuipers.

The scoring was helpful but all the Dux pitching staff needed was one as Brendan Vriezema shut down the Kelloggsville offense while pitching five shutout innings. “Brendan gave us everything we hoped for tonight,” said head coach Adam Locker, “he kept them off balance and gave guys a chance to make plays behind him.” The Dux did make all the plays behind Vriezema as they committed zero errors in the win.

Three players had multiple hit games for the Dux. Shane DeJonge was 2 for 4 with a double, Mason Kuipers was 2 for 3 with two singles, and Cooper Kilinski was 2 for 4 with two singles. Nic Keyzer, Max Hecht, and Grant Smith each had one hit apiece.

The win brings the Dux overall record to 19-17 which secures the first winning season for the baseball team in Zeeland West school history. The 19th win is also the most wins in a single season for the Dux. The Zeeland West baseball team now gears up to take on OK Green Conference foe Unity Christian in a 10:00AM District Semi-Final match up played at Holland Christian High School.
