Eights Season Ends in Loss to 22 Hardhats

Pierre Post 8’s 2022 season came to an end on Friday as the Post 22 Hardhats took control in a 13-2 five inning win to eliminate the Eights.

Rapid City scored five runs, three unearned in the first inning off of just two hits as the Hardhats were off and running holding down the Pierre bats and taking a 10-0 lead after two innings. Lincoln Kienholz would hit his sixth homer of the season to put Pierre on the board and Grayson Hunsley would drive in the second run in the top of the fourth, but it was the Hardhats who struck for three more runs in the bottom half of the inning and would end Pierre’s season at 20-22.

Brian White, manager of Post 8 says they were a couple of pitches away from being 2-0 in the tournament…

The Eights will lose super seniors Bennett Dean, Isaac Polak and Aaron Booth. Other seniors on the 2022 team are Garry Nedved, Spencer Letellier, Matt Hanson and Connor Bruce. White expressed his gratitude towards super seniors and seniors…

The Eights finish in the top six of the state going 1-2 in the state tournament. KCCR will have coverage of Pierre Governor sports starting in the fall and will cover football, volleyball and soccer.
