Baseball Crown Lies in Covington
4/25/2012 - by Jordan Fugate
Baseball is a complicated sport, at least statistically speaking, but there is one statistic that has me perplexed today. 21 Wins and 1 Loss; that is Covington Catholicís record so far this season. That record in the 9th region, in any given time-frame, is incredible. Is there much more to say? Does this record speak for itself? Am I asking too many questions? Itís only APRIL 25th; the Colonels could lose every game from here-on-out and still be an above .500 team. Bill Krumpelbeckís squad is flat-out focused this year.

With the help of the Colonels 13 seniors, CovCath has made this season one to remember so far. Their only defeat coming to Dixie Heights on April 7th with an 8-6 loss.

The game of baseball varies. To have a record over .500 is always a notable mark; you arenít going to win every game in baseball. We think of a solid high school baseball team somewhere in the range of (14-7) at this point in the season. Let me reiterate, 21 wins and 1 loss Ö am I the only one that is still trying to figure out how Krumpelbeckís team has done it? Am I the only one who would rather watch these young men give it their ALL as a team, as apposed to paying to see the good ole Reds embarrass themselves so far? I doubt it.

With a pitching rotation of mainly seniors, the Colonels have six games with zero runs allowed and tolerated only two games with five runs or more allowed.

This past weekend CovCath tore through the competition in the Doc Morris Scholarship Tournament, where they faced teams such as Scott, Ryle and Holy Cross. Although, the Colonels most notable win was against Dixie in the championship game where they cruised to an (11-2) victory.

It is easy to see why Covington Catholic is ranked No. 1 in Northern Kentucky, and rightfully so.
