High School Baseball:
The Lions Takes Care of Business

There are several key dates approaching that may have several teams realizing that the cutoff date to qualify for the upcoming state tournament is quickly approaching. The Lions from Cherry Hill West are one of those teams that need to take matters in their own hands if they want to extend their season into the post season. In a non-league baseball game, the Dragons from Kingsway visited Cherry Hill West. After being shutout in their previous game, the Lions rebounded behind starting pitcher Jason Kelmer and took control of this game. Cherry Hill West would stay above the five hundred percent mark by posting an 11-0 win against Kingsway.

The Lions had a tough time against the Vikings from Eastern in their previous game as they were unable to produce any runs. West would jump out to a 1-0 lead during the bottom of the second inning. But it would be the next inning that the hits would come for the Lions as they exploded for 10 runs. Kelmer not only struck out six batters, but also belted his third homerun of the season helping his own cause.
