 Softballers go 3-2 in top-flight Erie Festival

Mullen called it a successful venture after going 3-2 the past weekend in the Erie Festival, always a top stop on the softball circuit.

“We probably should have been 4-1, but we were pleased,” coach Greg Hogan said.

The Mustangs, now 4-4, opened with a 5-4 decision of regular Class 5A power Pomona. Next was a loss to another Jefferson County team, Dakota Ridge, by 7-3; a 4-3 victory over Pueblo West, a regular 4A challenger; a 10-9 setback to Sequoyah of Claremore, Okla., a recognized out-of-state power; and an 11-4 victory over 5A Chatfield, also in Jeffco.

Of the 4A Mustangs’ four setbacks, three have been one-run games.

“The power rankings we had out of there were great for our girls,” Hogan said. “This will make us better and playing consecutive games was great for us, too.”

Against Pomona, Caley McKune contributed two hits and two RBIs, and Keri Donovan and Tatum Maloney each added two safeties.

In the Dakota Ridge loss, Bella Hawkins had two hits including a triple, and drove home a run. Tiffanie Brieno and Alexis Duran also plated runs.

Mullen scored twice in the bottom of the sixth inning to knock off Pueblo West. Sophomore Marissa Sanchez went the distance pitching and added a two-run double.

In a matchup against the very talented Sequoyah Eagles, Mullen scored in every inning but the fifth and managed 12 hits, but was hurt by three errors. Maloney, Emma DiGiacomo and Elena Garcia each drove home two runs. Garcia also tripled.

As for the seven-run victory over Chatfield, Mullen scored a season-high in runs and hits (19), headed by Brieno, who was 4-for-5 with four runs scored and three RBIs. She also homered and doubled twice. Every Mustangs regular either hit safely or scored.

Plus, Hogan cited the pitching of Sanchez, a sophomore, throughout the tournament.

The Mustangs will next see action on Wednesday (Sept. 6), against visiting Columbine before an eight-day break.

New coach, new look for Mustangs' boys tennis



By Neil H. Devlin

(Second in a series of fall previews for the Mustangs.)

Quiet on the court … Mullen is serving a new wave of boys tennis.

From a new head coach to a fresh batch of freshman hopefuls, the Mustangs have opened 2017 with a new look.

It began in the off-season and head coach Jacob Ohrman has liked what he has seen.

“We had been doing camp three days per week,” Ohrman said. “The summer with these kids has been great. We were having a ton of fun and I couldn’t be happier with how it went, it was better than expected.”

He expects 50-60 players to be active in the program. Ultimately, the top 11 (three singles players and four sets of doubles) will stay at varsity, then others will comprise the varsity II and junior-varsity units.

“Depending on the school we play, they may all get to play or some will get to play,” Ohrman said. “Obviously, if possible, it would be great to get everyone to play.”

This year’s Mustangs will be freshman and sophomore heavy, perhaps exclusively – Ohrman said he has no returning seniors and two juniors were “on the fence” about playing when preseason camp practice opened on Monday.

As it is, the coach said he has about five players on the same level. Sophomore Tanner Amman and No. 2 doubles partner from a year ago J.T. Starkey are returning. They will be pushed by three freshmen, Mac Caldwell, Dante Dino and George Henry Hansel.

Ohrman, who was a top singles player as a high-schooler and participated in the John Necombe Academy in Texas, said he enters his first prep coaching job “definitely a little bit blind, and I was warned that Mullen may be in a bit of a rebuilding year. But these freshman kids are good. Tennis is their sport. It’s what they play.”

As usual, the Mustangs will be facing the high end of Class 5A competition in the vaunted Centennial League, including the likes of annual big-school state champion Cherry Creek, before heading into the 4A postseason. Top regular-season competition, including against 4A’s Air Academy, can only prepare the Mustangs for a playoff run.

“I think we can be good,” Ohrman said. “Our depth will help. We might struggle a bit at the top, but we’ve got some really good depth. This is me saying it without seeing any other teams, but I think we can be competitive.”

Mullen will open the regular season with a dual match against Air Academy on Aug. 23, then will play in the Kadets’ tournament a couple of days later.

Regionals, which will be hosted by Mullen, are to be completed by Oct. 7. The 4A state tournament will be Oct. 12-14 at City Park in Pueblo.
