Kayhi Baseball Tees Off in Arizona

The runner-up at regionals, the Kayhi Kings varsity baseball team will be kicking their season off in Arizona on Thursday at 11:30 am against Joy Christian High School (Glendale) to start off the Coach Bob invitational.
The Kings had an outstanding season last year having Alaska Gatorade player of the year Nathan Bonck who is now a pitcher for Seattle University. This 2017 season, Kayhi will have 8 returning seniors, 4 of them were previous starters and 7 returning juniors.
Junior Gabe Bowlen believes that the team will have a great start to the season.
“I think that the team will do exceptionally well this year. Even though I’m just a third year returner not knowing the full potential of the team without last years,” Bowlen said. “My freshman year, both the freshman and sophomore classes had a lot of good team chemistry. Since we are gonna be playing a lot of the same kids, I think we’ll do pretty well this season.”
Andy Berntson, is now heading into his 7th year of being a head coach and 10th with the program and has high expectations of the team.
“In this group we have an excellent combination of kids. I think that will be fun. The young guys making an impact, which will be a different thing,” said Berntson. “We have had years past where the older groups have been so talented that makes it hard to get everyone playing time, so that will be something to keep an eye on.”
Kayhi’s next games will be on March 31 at 8:30am against Seaside High School OR, and against Joy Christian High School on April 1st at 10am. Last season the Kings lost to Joy Christian 8-4.
