Basehor takes down Bishop Ward — in baseball
Few teams in any classification have been able to beat the Bishop Ward baseball team in recent years.
The Cyclones, after all, are the six-time defending Class 4A state champions.
On Friday, however, Basehor-Linwood notched its fourth victory of the week and first in a long time over Bishop Ward, winning 6-0 at BLHS.
The Bobcats improved to 11-5 overall and are 5-2 in the Kaw Valley League.
Tyler Henley was at his best on the mound for BLHS as he threw a complete-game, one-hit shutout and moved to 4-1 as a starter this season. Henley struck out 14 batters in the game. The lone hit surrendered was a two-out infield single in the sixth inning.
Henley also had two hits in the victory, Brandon Leppke had two runs scored and Ryan Lawless added two runs batted in to lead the Bobcat offense.
BLHS next plays Monday against Turner.
