White Lake starts off season 3-0 after 13-11 road win over Three Lakes
space
In a high-scoring affair, the White Lake Lakers baseball club downed Three Lakes on the road Tuesday 13-11. In a three way tie for first with Crandon and Florence in the Northern Lakes Conference, the Lakers could not afford a loss.

“I like where the kids are at mentally. Winning three games on the road, especially when they are your first three games of the year, (is great),” Coach Brian Boyd said after the game.

With runs in the first inning and two in the second, White Lake never lost its initial lead. A five-run sixth inning virtually guaranteed a Laker victory.

“Getting out-hit on the road and still ending up with a win is something to be proud of,” Coach Boyd noted. “The fact that we continue to hit the ball with two outs has been a key to our early season success.”

White Lake finished with 16 total hits to Three Lakes’ 20. Leading the way for the Lakers was Dillion Gollihue, who went 3-5 on the day including a three-run homer in the top of the third.

Boyd later spoke of Gollihue, “Dillion really spearheaded our attack at the plate tonight. His (performance) was a major game changing play. As soon as the ball left the bat, you knew it was going to be amazing.”

Joe Kubacki finished his day 3-5 also, with two doubles and a single. Nick Wickersheim was 3-4 with a home run and two singles.

Though Kubacki and Gollihue pitched two and three innings respectively, Zack Mabry was decided the Lakers winning pitcher. Mabry gave up five hits for two runs (only one earned) with two strikeouts and zero batters walked.

Looking ahead to the future, Coach Boyd said, “Our remaining conference games are at home, so we have set ourselves up nicely as we head down the home stretch. Since Thursday is our home opener, I know we will see a great turn out from our community.”

The first pitch of the abovementioned White Lake home opener is at 5 p.m.
