Jake Dexter-Meldrum’s Solid Pitching Gets Cate Back on Winning Track

Cate's baseball team bounced back with 5-0 win over Pahranagat Valley from Nevada on Saturday.

The victory puts Cate's record at an even 3-3.

Jack Deardorff  was 2-3 at the plate with a RBI and a run scored. Patrick Armstrong had a two-run double in the second inning and Bryce Huerta went 1-3 with three stolen bases on the day.

The player of the game for the Rams was senior Jake Dexter-Meldrum, said coach Dave Soto. The right hander was nothing short of stellar on the mound, going the distance (7 innings), while scattering 4 hits, walking just one, and striking out 8.

Dexter-Meldrum got defensive support from Deardorff  at shortstop and Dean Smith behind the plate.

The Rams were coming off two losses.

"What a difference five days can make," Soto said. "This was one of the best games we have played in a while and I'm proud of the way we came back after a tough time in our pervious two games."

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
