Renegades 15U squad goes 4-0 in GSL Tournament

KITSAP COUNTY — The Demarini Renegades 15U team, made up almost entirely of young high school players from Kitsap County, had a weekend to remember.

Competing in the third annual GSL State Tournament, which took place June 28-July 1, in the 16U division, the Renegades went 4-0 and earned the right to play in a state championship game July 16 at Cheney Stadium in Tacoma.

In game one, Olympic’s Logan O’Neil and Central Kitsap’s Chandler Lindstrom combined for a no-hitter in a 9-0 victory. The team rolled from there, defeating Timberjacks 16U 4-2; Showtime North 16U 5-4; and Laces 16U 7-4.

Lindstrom was a two-way threat, picking up two wins in the tournament going 4 for 10 at the plate with three RBI. He pitched 8 1/3 innings total, giving up seven hits and two earned runs while striking out six. O’Neil collected one victory in five innings pitched. He struck out seven.

Olympic’s Jarit Clarke also stood out in the tournament, recording two saves. He struck out 11 hitters in 7 2/3 innings of work and gave up just one earned run. Clarke also collected eight hits in 12 at-bats, including a double, scoring five runs and driving in four.

Chris Schucart, who mostly played first base for North Kitsap this past year, went 6 for 9 with 6 RBI; South Kitsap’s Collin Wolfe went 4 for 7 with three doubles and four RBI; and Ezekiel Rodriguez of Central Kitsap went 4 for 9 with three doubles and three runs scored.

The Renegades roster also includes Josh Fisher and Ryan Hayden from North Kitsap; Charlie Hennessy of Olympic; and Dylan LaBreche, Gary Mullins and Jake Olsen of South Kitsap.
