The 2018 Greyhound Baseball team opened up the season on Tuesday, March 15th when they traveled to Ellensburg to take on the Defending State Champs. With first year head coach Mike Kinkade and the departure of six seniors, this revamped team looks to make their first trip to state since 2011. The Greyhounds coming off of a 6-9 season, looked to get off to a hot start after dropping last season's opening game last year against Deer Park, 12-9. Junior Payton Kallaher got the start on the mound for the Greyhounds as it was three up-three down inning for both ball clubs. The bats were quiet for both teams until the bottom of the third when Ellensburg notched a run in, to take the first lead of the game 1-0. Ellensburg's bats were only hotter from there as they scored six runs the next inning, following with three the next inning as they won the ball game in five innings 10-0. The Greyhounds did have opportunities in the early innings to get runs on the board, but they failed to get those runners in as they stranded two runners in each of the second and third innings. With momentum never going the Greyhounds way, they had only a total of two hits for the game. With many new pieces on the team, the Greyhounds will be looking for some momentum in the future non-league games. The Greyhounds will travel up to Chewelah on Saturday, March 17th to take on the Cougars woth the first game starting at 12:00 P.M.
