Lower Columbia defeats Mt. Hood for 2015 Baseball Championship

Scores: Game 1 | Game 2

Working on two days’ rest, Lower Columbia College pitcher Tanner Olson was dealing with some soreness and stiffness in his back. He wasn’t going to let it stop him and his fellow Red Devils from reaching their goal.

Olson tossed a six-hitter to garner Most Valuable Player honors, and his teammates pounded out 13 hits to beat Mount Hood 6-1 in the title game of the Northwest Athletic Conference Baseball Championships on Monday at David Story Field.

Earlier in the day, Mount Hood needed 11 innings to beat LCC 2-1 to force a second championship game in the double-elimination tournament.

LCC (41-10) won its conference-record 11th baseball title in its 24th championship game appearance. Mount Hood, which notched its fourth runner-up finish in seven title game appearances, finished 35-14.

“It’s a great feeling to win this, and it’s what you work for every day beginning in September,” LCC coach Eddie Smith said. “We put them through a grind to get them ready for a tournament like this and a day like this, and it’s worth it.”

Olson was sharp, throwing 69 of his 106 pitches for strikes. He struck out three batters and walked two.

“I battled through the soreness and stiffness and got the job done,” Olson said. “I came out, threw strikes and let them put the ball in play. I have a good defense behind me, and they made the plays.”

Saints’ coach Bryan Donohue also was impressed with Olson’s performance.

“Their arm was a lot sharper, they hit better and they showed up to play,” he said. “You get to this game and you hope to have a chance to win it. We didn’t have that chance as the game went on, and they did a good job putting runs on and creating space between us.”

The Devils scored all the runs they needed in the third inning. Chris Rogers led off with a line drive double down the left field line, and scored when Saints’ pitcher Seth Rayburn tossed a sacrifice bunt from Ryan Engquist over the third baseman’s head.

Two batters later, Seaver Whalen drilled a Rayburn offering into the left field bullpen, which scored Engquist.

“There wasn’t anything we could’ve done differently,” Donohue said. “The three-spot hurt, and any time we felt we had something going their pitcher nipped it in the bud.”

The Saints scored in the fourth inning, but left three baserunners stranded in scoring position in the first, fourth and ninth innings.

“The one thing we could’ve done more was put pressure on at the offensive end,” Donohue said. “We had a few runners on, but we grounded into a lot of double plays.”

Hood grounded into five double plays, including twin killings that ended the first, sixth and eighth innings.

“We did a good job taking care of the baseball, attacking the zone and limiting their opportunities,” Smith said. “We were able to extend offensively.”

Smith talked himself out of replacing Olson with a reliever for the ninth inning.

“The sophomores probably would’ve killed me if I had done it,” he said. “I couldn’t imagine he’d be that good coming back like he did on two days’ rest, but he was the best he’s been all season.”

LCC had 13 hits. All-Tournament picks Whalen and Tanner Marty had three hits apiece, and all-tourney selections Ryan Littlefield and Lorin Archibald added two hits each.

Mount Hood 2, Lower Columbia 1 (11 innings): The Red Devils made one error in the first championship game, but it was costly and led to the Saints’ game-winning run.

Devils’ All-Tournament reliever Christian Parsons opened the 11th inning with consecutive strikeouts when he gave up a first-pitch base hit to Saints’ center fielder Isaac Benard. One pitch later, Benard stole second, and moved to third when the errant pickoff throw sailed into center field.

After intentionally walking cleanup hitter Nolan McCall, Tommy Lane hit a line drive to center field, which scored Benard.

LCC broke a scoreless tie in the fifth inning when Engquist reached base on a third strike passed ball, and scored on an RBI double to right-center field from Kane Ulrich.

Hood tied the game in the eighth when Evan Jones hit a leadoff single and later scored on a sacrifice fly from Nick Gawley.

Southern Division MVP and All-Tournament pitcher Joe Balfour checked LCC on six hits and struck out three in a complete-game outing.

“We played well and it was two great teams going at it,” Smith said. “They had an arm on the mound which was the Southern MVP for a reason, and we came out on the short end of a good ballgame.”

All-Tournament starting pitcher Kade Kryzsko scattered five hits and threw 54 of his 82 pitches for strikes before yielding to Parsons, who took the loss.

Jake Bakamus had two hits including a double, and Michael Forgione added two singles.

Also named to the All-Tournament team were LCC pitcher Alex Torson; Mount Hood pitcher Balfour, catcher Louis Wolf, infielder McCall and outfielders Benard and Nick Gawley; Tacoma infielders Jake Vieth and Alex Hull; Treasure Valley infielder Steffan Zanoni; Edmonds infielder Jamie Umbinetti; and Douglas pitcher Cody Duggan.

“The guys embraced the toughness it took to be a great team, and rather than shy away from it they took it head-on,” Smith said. “You have a band of guys doing it for each other and no one was going to give up.

“They knew they would find the championship some how, some way.”

Baseball Championship Today Mt. Hood vs. Lower Columbia – Sunday Recaps

Red Devils beat Edmonds, move into title game

By Rick McCorkle

Alex Torson gave Lower Columbia College eight solid innings on the mound, and his teammates responded with an 8-1 victory over Edmonds in the NWAC Baseball Championships on Sunday at David Story Field.

The Red Devils (40-9), winners of their last 13 home games, face Mount Hood for the tournament championship at 12:05 p.m. on Monday.

LCC is the lone team without a loss in the double-elimination tournament and needs one win in two possible games for the conference championship. Mount Hood, which has a loss, would need to beat the Red Devils twice on Monday to claim the tourney title.

The loss ended Edmonds’ season at 34-12.

“It’s a good feeling to know you need to win only one game,” LCC coach Eddie Smith said. “When all is said and done and the dust settles, you hope you’ve scored more runs than the other team.”

Torson’s solid outing, along with an inning of relief from Ryan Peart, gives Smith a lot of available pitchers for the championship.

“Alex’s performance now gives us a lot of options out of the bullpen,” Smith said. “The bottom line is the championship will be a dogfight which both teams have worked all season to reach. We’ll have to go out and make the plays.”

Torson gave up a run in the first inning and surrendered leadoff hits in the initial four innings. The freshman from Vancouver hit his stride in the fifth inning, allowing two hits and a walk in his final four innings. Torson threw 65 of his 93 pitches for strikes, finishing with two strikeouts and a walk.

“I was relying on the defense behind me and knew they had my back by making plays on ground balls and pop flies,” Torson said. “I like to get ahead early in the count which is key for me and my success. When you’re ahead in the count, a lot of times you can get batters to either roll it over or pop up.”

LCC scored all the runs it needed in the second inning when it parlayed base hits from Ryan Littlefield, Tanner Marty, Chris Rogers and Ryan Engquist into a 3-1 lead.

An Edmonds error and singles from Michael Forgione and Marty produced a Devils’ run in the fifth, and they tacked on four insurance scores in the eighth.

A scary moment for the Devils occurred in the eighth inning. Forgione led off with a walk, but when he slid back into first base on a pickoff attempt, he dislocated his shoulder.

Forgione, the Devils’ third baseman, spent an extended amount of time lying on the field while LCC’s team trainer worked at getting the shoulder back in place.

“It was definitely scary,” Smith said of Forgione’s shoulder. “He’s one of 33 guys who are the heart and soul of this team. We’ll have to think long and hard about who we’ll put at third base tomorrow. We’ll have to go out and win a championship for him.”

LCC finished with 12 hits. Marty was 3 for 5 and scored twice, Engquist was 2 for 4 with three RBIs, Littlefield was 2 for 5 with two runs scored, and Forgione had a hit and walked twice.

Mount Hood 7, Tacoma 3 — Nick Gawley’s two-run homer in the fifth inning broke open a close game for the Saints as they advance to Monday’s NWAC Championship title game.

Mount Hood (34-13) led 2-1 after three innings. In addition to Gawley’s blast, the Saints also scored on a bases-loaded walk to Jay Rogers. Hood added a pair of insurance runs in the sixth with a two-run single from Isaac Benard.

The Saints had 11 hits. Gawley was 3 for 5, Benard was 2 for 3 with three RBIs, and Nolan McCall was 2 for 5 with a double. Aaron Clift scattered three hits, struck out three batters and walked three through six innings for the win. Chase Wiger tossed three innings of one-hit relief with three strikeouts.

Tacoma, which finished its season 36-14, had five hits including Jake Vieth with two.

Olympic sophomore Hunter Keffer overcame major life hurdles to become a Track & Field All-American

BREMERTON — Scars always make for interesting stories.

Olympic College sophomore Hunter Keffer has a scar about four inches long that starts on the right side of his head by his hair and curves around his hairline and ends just above his temple.

He used to hide it by parting his hair to that side, but now, he’s no longer embarrassed about it or how it looks. Keffer leaves it in plain view.

“It’s kind of a victory for me,” he said.

It’s only noticeable if you talk to the 21-year-old for more than a few minutes, but the story behind it and the memories that are still with him make it stand out more and more.

It all started the summer before he was to enter the eighth grade. Keffer was already into several sports such as football (already a strong athlete, he was put where ever the coaches felt he would be best), soccer (a goalkeeper, he traveled briefly with a select team) and wrestling.

One day when he was at church, he suffered the first of many epileptic seizures.

“I was just standing in the sanctuary and all of a sudden I blacked out and hit the floor,” he said.

The ensuing trip to the hospital and the MRI that followed revealed a dime-sized tumor on the right frontal lobe of Keffer’s brain.

It’s called an angoicentric glioma tumor and it’s one of the rarest, but one of the fastest-growing, tumors in existence. It was first introduced into the World Health Organization tumor classification in 2007. Only 28 cases have been reported. Keffer barely remembers the name because it’s so difficult to pronounce.

He’s thankful the seizure happened.

“I don’t want to say it’s good to have seizures, but it was a blessing in disguise, because if I didn’t have the seizure, I wouldn’t have gone in and have it checked out,” he said. “I’m just glad that it’s out of my head.”

A month later, he had surgery to have the tumor removed. There wasn’t much damage to his brain, although he did have to do some therapy with his right leg and relearn some organizational skills.

But that wasn’t the end of his woes.

Keffer had to go back in for surgery to remove scar tissue that was building up in his brain and had become a dangerous mass.

The worst part of his recovery was the massive amount of pills he had to take. There were three different pills to deal with his epileptic seizures, for his constant migraine headache, for his depression. In all, he was taking about 35 different medications.

“I had a metal box for all my pills and a key that I had around my neck and I carried it everywhere with me,” he said.

Keffer said he had trouble dealing with all the medications and was often in a drug-induced haze. He also worried about how taking all of the pills every day and whether they were doing long-term damage to his body.

“You’re not supposed to be on max medication for a significant amount of time,” he said.

Through all this, Keffer still competed in track and field. The doctors told him he had to give up the other sports as he couldn’t risk taking any blows to the head, but track was safe.

“I had to take it more seriously because it was the only sport I could do, but in that I found that track is where my passion lies,” Keffer said. “It was bittersweet because I really liked those other sports, but I’m glad I was able to find track and still compete.”

He was introduced to the high jump in the ninth grade and quickly took to the event, qualifying for state twice for Olympic High School. He earned a medal as a junior, when he took sixth.

Keffer transferred to Central Kitsap his senior year because that school offered classes and resources for students dealing with a serious illness in order for him to graduate. He ran for the cross country team and did track and field, but didn’t make it to state in the high jump.

“One of the reasons I loved the high jump was that it was the only time that I was getting ready to jump, I could get rest from the headache that I had,” he said.

After graduation, Keffer took a year off and volunteered at Island Lake for Crista Camps. He also decided he was tired of having to take all the meds.

So he slowly weaned himself off the medication. By the time he took his last pill, his migraines finally went away. He hasn’t had a seizure since.

“The doctors were actually looking to add more medication,” Keffer said. “It wasn’t something my doctor told me to do and I don’t suggest anyone to do the same without talking to their doctor first, but I was just fed up with it. My friends and family were saying that I wasn’t Hunter, that I wasn’t myself. So one day I just knew that I wasn’t supposed to be on this many pills.”

His faith played a massive part in him helping to recover.

“If I didn’t have my faith, I would have lost hope a long time ago,” he said. “One of my favorite verses is Matthew 6:34 — do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow has enough worry of its own. So I was able to look at that and it really helps me out. I can’t worry about having epileptic seizures anymore cause I’ll get caught up in that fear and I don’t need that. I’m so free right now and it’s so awesome to be set apart from that fear.”

Keffer said he’s open to helping those that have also gone through what he once went through. Several members at his church have reached out to him to do just that.

“I knew that there was something good that was going to come of it,” he said. “Looking back now I can see that there is very much good that came out from me going through that surgery and so now I’m able to share my story with others and help them.”

During his time off, he found he missed track and field so he decided to enroll at OC and go out for the team.

Coach Dan Dittmer was more than excited to have him come out for the team.

“He had not done track in a year, but he showed up to practice and we got to talking,” he said. “So we started working with hurdling — I make all the kids work with hurdles — and a year and two months later, he’s good enough to qualify in the top 16 for the entire NWAC.

“He has unlimited potential,” Dittmer continued. “And I’m flat out amazed at where he’s at from where he once was. It just goes to show you what you can do.”

While Keffer had to work to get back in shape, he was having a good season last year, but got hurt when he landed wrong on a pole vault attempt and dislocated his kneecap. Although he avoided serious injury, he still had to sit out the rest of the season to rehab it.

This season, he’s healthy and excelling, qualifying for the NWAC championships, which begin Monday in Spokane, in five events: the high jump, the 100-yard dash, the shot put and the 4×100 and 4×400 meter relays. He’s the top seed in the high jump at 6-foot-7.

“It feels pretty good to finally make it to the championships and hopefully place,” he said.

He took sixth at the NWAC decathlon championships in Salem, Oregon, the weekend of April 27; his teammate Jayson Brocklesby won by over 250 points over second-place finisher Colton Thurman of Lane Community College.

“I didn’t put up the numbers that I needed to,” he said. “I was pretty tired and I didn’t have the pop that I needed in a lot of the events, but it just gives me the opportunity to do better at the NWAC Championships.”

It will be the last time Keffer competes in track and field competitively. He’s been accepted to the Northwest College of Art and Design in Poulsbo and will take part in their graphic design program. Though he won’t be doing track and field, he’s finding other sports to try out, such as rock climbing and cycling.

Dittmer hopes he changes his mind — he said he’s heard from several colleges about Keffer, including Portland State — but he knows that education is important to him.

While Keffer is shooting for a top-three finish to earn All-American honors, he’s still happy he’s alive to make it this far one last time.

“I’ve had a huge victory over something that is very dark and scary for kids,” he said. “I definitely had to grow up really fast and learn a lot of things that kids my age back then wouldn’t have to go though and people won’t have to go through their entire lives. But it really helped get my focus straight and know what’s important.

“I could have just passed away,” Keffer continued. “But now I’m able to come out and enjoy life and compete in track and be a normal adult.”
