Successful Weekend for Blackhawks

It was a busy weekend for the Southeastern Community College Blackhawks.

Beginning with the baseball team, SCC picked up two wins against Spoon River College 10-1 and 11-10 on Friday.

In the first game, Devin Buckner and Bryce Simon each picked up a pair of runs batted in while Cooper Jones and Gavin Logan each knocked in a run as well.

Chas Sagedahl, who is coming off a stellar 9-2 season where he posted a 1.41 ERA and had 109 strikeouts in just 76 innings, bounced back from a rough first start of the season to post six shutout innings and struck out eight batters.

For the second half of doubleheader action, the Blackhawks had to battle back after getting down 6-0 going into the bottom of the fourth.

Cole Tucker had a fantastic performance to help lead the comeback as he went 4-4 at the plate and drove in five runs.

Dayson Croes batted in a trio of runs while Jones and Franklin Aparcio each had one.

Kyle Ament picked up his first win of the season out of the bullpen by coming in to pitch a scoreless 7th inning while striking out the side.

SCC moved to 4-2 on the season with the wins and both of their games against Morton College on Saturday were cancelled due to the weather.

Each of the Blackhawk basketball teams picked up wins over the weekend as well with the men’s team defeating Black Hawk College 88-62 on Friday and the women’s team taking down Little Priest Tribal College on Fan Appreciation Nite at SCC.

Trenton Massner led the men’s team in scoring off the bench with 16 and was one of four players to finish in double figures.

Massner also finished with a team high five assists while Kelvon Fuller hauled in eight rebounds to go with his 11 points.

The win pushed them to 25-4 on the season and they will play Iowa Western Community College at 7 PM in the regional semifinals on Wednesday.

Six players finished above the ten pointe threshold for the women’s team with Mrylena Stewart’s 16 leading the team, but she was joined by Andresiha Waller, Bededetta Morpurgo, Shaniya Caldwell, Miah Shelby and Destiny Trujillo.

Waller had a team high six rebounds while Stewart was also the top facilitator with six assists.

The Blackhawks knocked in ten threes out of 25 attempts and shot 61.4% from the field to pick up their 17th win of the year.

They will head on the road next to take on Iowa Central at 5:30 PM on Wednesday and then will be back at home for the final regular season game of the year on Saturday where they will celebrate Sophomore Day against North Iowa Area Community College at 1 PM.
