Beno 2014 eric2014
The Wyoming Area Baseball Program began a new tradition at our 2012 Banquet in honor of John Anthony "Beno" Borzell. Beno passed away in September of 2011 at the young age of 22. He played baseball from 2002 until he graduated in 2007. His versatility was the hallmark of his scholastic baseball career, as he enjoyed success on the mound in the middle infield, in centerfield and especially on the basepaths. His leadership attitude and passion for the game epitomize the ideals for all present and future Warrior players to strive for. Through the annual bestowing of this award, our baseball family will come to honor the memory of a very special young man. Pictured above are members of the Borzell family, Kyle Charney, and Head Coach Dean Carey.

The Wyoming Area Baseball program began a new tradition at our 2014 banquet in honor of Eric Speicher. Eric, age 14, passed away in December 2013 after a courageous battle against brain cancer. Eric was a catcher and loved to play baseball. The Eric Award will be given to the most outstanding Wyoming Area junior high player.

Pictured above are Jen Bonita, Cole Keating, Mike Bonita and Junior High Coach Rich Musinski. The Bonitas are relatives of the Speichers who were unable to attend the banquet.

May 6: Warriors Fall to Dallas  

Dallas 7, Wyoming Area 4

Wyoming Area (6-7) got a triple from Bryant Clark.

May 5: Warriors Beat Tunkhannock 8-2

Wyoming Area extends division lead with WVC baseball win over Tunkhannock

May 05. 2014 11:51PM

By Derek Levarse - dlevarse@civitasmedia.com

TUNKHANNOCK — With the bases loaded against him in the fifth, Zach Lopatka calmly delivered.

The Wyoming Area senior reached back and struck out Tunkhannock’s cleanup hitter with two outs, and walked back to the dugout without any theatrics.

A big moment in an otherwise comfortable 8-2 Warriors win Monday, one that pushed them a bit closer to a WVC Division 2 title.

“Things don’t bother Zach,” Wyoming Area coach Dean Carey said with a smile. “I like that. He doesn’t show too much emotion either way. … Cool, calm and collected.

“Good pitching is what you need down the stretch. This was a big win for us today.”

With the season sweep of the Tigers, Wyoming Area (6-6 WVC) moved two up in the win column over second-place Dallas (4-6). The two teams are scheduled to play Wednesday.

The Warriors have had to break in a host of new starters this season after reaching the district semifinals in 2013. On Monday, it was two veterans who led the way.

Lopatka and junior Joe Gavenonis both had strong performances in the victory. The lefty Lopatka went the distance on the mound and struck out five for the win, including that clutch K to end the fifth. At the plate, he doubled and drove in three runs.

Gavenonis reached base in all four plate appearances, drawing three walks and adding an RBI single.

“They played on a senior-laden team last year, and we try to lean on those two,” Carey said. “We count on them, and they stepped up today.”

Jeremy Zezza’s run-scoring double in the top of the first gave the Warriors a quick 3-0 lead that Lopatka made stand up the rest of the way.

But it was the fourth inning that put the game out of reach as the Warriors pushed four across. Three consecutive bunts to lead off the frame had the Tigers (4-8) scrambling before Gavenonis knocked in a run.

Lopatka then delivered his big double to bring home two more before Tyler Mitchell made it 7-1 with a sacrifice fly, robbed of extra bases thanks to a terrific over-the-shoulder catch by Hunter Hopkins in right.

Hopkins was one of two freshmen who started in the field for the Tigers, along with first baseman Connor Hulslander. In all, the Tigers played three freshmen and six sophomores at some point during Monday’s game.

“They’ve grown mentally and they’ve grown fundamentally,” Tunkhannock coach Gary Custer said of his young roster. “They’re going to be stronger. They’re going to throw the ball harder. They’re going to swing the bat faster. All of that is still to come, so I’m optimistic.”

It was one of the seniors, Sean Soltysiak, who continued to pace the team at the plate. The impressive shortstop blasted his league-leading fourth home run to lead off the bottom of the fourth and finished 2-for-2 with a walk.

Sophomores Cody Brown (2-for-3, double) and Austin Burke (single, RBI) also chipped in.

“You know when you come up here, you’re always gonna get a game,” Carey said. “So to come out with a win, we’re fortunate. That’s a tough team to beat, and a class team, too.

“I was proud of our guys. They came out to play today.”

 
May 3: Crestwood defeats Warriors 2-1  

Times Leader

Brian Markowski threw six innings, giving up one hit and one run as the Comets won a close one over the Warriors. Tyler Jones had the only extra base hit of the game with a double for Crestwood. Pitcher Jeremy Zezza had the only hit for Wyoming Area.

 
May 2: Charney's Hit Gives Warriors 6-5 win over Berwick  

Times Leader

Kyle Charney came through with a bases-loaded single with two outs in the bottom of the seventh to lift Wyoming Area to a 6-5 win over Berwick on Friday in WVC baseball action.

Charney, Joe Gavenonis and Tino Romanelli had two hits apiece for the Warriors (5-5). Gavennonis picked up the win in relief. Berwick (8-3) got two hits each from Alex Klinger, Zach Andress and Cody Talanca.
