SPORTS SECTION 2 CHENEY FREE PRESS I 3 Thursday, June 11,2015 Cheney 15 Summerhawks for summer season By AL STOVER Staff Reporter The Cheney Sum- merhawks 15U baseball team is preparing for a change of scenery. Unlike Cheney's 17U team, which plays an independent sched- ule this summer, the 15U squad will com- pete in the Spokane Indians Youth Baseball League. The Summer- hawks' will play all of their games outside of the West Plains. "We were talking with the league to see if we can use West- wood Middle School as a home field for us," 15U head coach Nick Fell said. "But we're the newbies of the league, so we understood if we had to play all of our games outside of Chenev." Fell, who was an assistant coach for the Cheney High School junior varsity team and Summerhawks, is in his first year as head coach. He said his team is comprised of high school and eighth grad- ers, many of whom have played baseball togeth- er in Little League and in All Stars. "They recognize each other's strengths," Fell said. "We have a lot of young talent. I have guys who want to work and hustle. That's what I like to see as a coach." Before the first game, Fell hopes to finalize the positions. The team is working on fundamentals, build- ing their comradery and "getting back into baseball rhythm." "We're making sure that we are on the same page," Fell said. "Base- ball is a mental game and the last thing we want as a team is to beat ourselves." While winning games is important, Fell said he wants play- ers to have fun and get experience to prepare them for next spring. "Right now, we know what we need to do to get ready for this new league," Fell said. "We are looking forward to the chal- lenge." Cheney begins its season against The Joes, June 15, at Canfield Middle School in Coeur d'Alene.

This is an improvement from last year's state tournament where she finished 22nd and shot a 195. Head coach Gerald Morton praised March- and's performance, saying she made great contact with the ball, however her putting game fell short.

"Some- times its mental, some- times it's frustration and other times as you keep U17 continued from page 1 hitting team but they fought hard," Sharp The:C in@ ni0r shot ich wasa:PR:for a groat year for: lipping the ball out, the confidence starts going away. In her case it was a combination of all three." Morton added that Marchand has already signed up for several WJGA (Washington Ju- nior Golf Association) tournaments and will work on her golf game during the summer to prepare for her senior season.
