Coach Dan Wendel of A-A stated, "I thought Jaden pitched a superb game in his first varsity start. He seemed to get stronger and more comfortable as the game went on. Our defense was strong again tonight, and offensively we came up with timely hits. We are doing a good job of coming to the baseball field focused and ready to play."

In Wednesday's game against Newell-Fonda, Ryan Friedrich and Ben Stevens combined on a no-hitter, with Friedrich going the first four innings and striking out three and Stevens coming in to pitch the last inning and adding another K.

Friedrich was also 2-3 at the plate, as was Christian Weiland 2-3. Jaden Holton, Neil Marshall, Matt Sefcik and Chris Bengtson all drove in runs for the Warriors.

Coach Wendel stated that "Ryan and Ben both pitched very well for us tonight. Newell-Fonda did a nice job of putting the bat on the ball, and our defense did a great job of making plays. We have been pretty good defensively the last few games, and I hope we continue to build on this success. I thought Connor (Juilfs, who pitched the first two innings for NF) pitched a good game for them, and he does a very nice job of mixing it up. We took advantage of some of their mistakes and that was the difference in the game. We need to keep playing at this level and finish strong."

The Warriors' record now stands at 15-2 overall.
