Joel Revo Gets Cate Baseball Off to Winning Start

Joel Revo turned in a dominating pitching performance and had a pair of hits, leading Cate to an 8-1 season-opening baseball win over Valley Christian Academy on Wednesday.

Revo, a junior, went six innings and allowed one hit and one walk while striking out nine. Freshman Jack Deardorff finished the game by striking out the side in the seventh.

The Rams got things going early in the game when Dean Smith walked to start things off. The senior center fielder eventually came home on an RBI single by Deardorff  who also had a triple and a run scored on the day. Jake Dexter-Meldrum hit a solo home run in the third.

Cate broke things open in the fourth when four Rams came across home plate. Deardorff  finished his Cate debut 3-4, while Smith and Dexter-Meldrum both went 1-3.

"It was a good first game for us," coach Dave Soto said. "We did a lot of really good things in this game and I'm proud of the progress we have made in the short time we've been together. I can't say enough about the great job Revo did for us today. He was outstanding on the mound all day."

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!
