Warhawks end L-S season in district playoffs
MONTEZUMA — With Cale Van Wyk taking the hill, Lynnville-Sully’s Hawks looked confident. Despite having won just five games in the regular season, the Hawks showed up to the Montezuma High baseball field with a bounce in their collective step, ready to take on South Iowa Cedar League rivals North Mahaska.
Their confidence was not unwarranted, despite the lackluster win-loss record for the Hawks. Van Wyk — one of two seniors on the team — had an outstanding regular season, racking up 142 strikeouts and only allowing 33 earned runs in 80 2/3 innings.
However, Van Wyk’s opponents on Tuesday had some familiarity with him, which undoubtedly contributed to the result. North Mahaska’s Warhawks did enough to advance in the Class 1A baseball district playoffs with their 7-4 win over the Hawks.
