The members of the 2018 District 7 Baseball All-Opponent Team were announced May 12. Back row: Dalton Kentner, Chase Gerard, Maguire Issak, Ryan Sample, Theron Schlomer, Colton Hunt, Camden Weber and coach Larry Weber. Front row: Ryan Zimmerman, Colton Hanson, Jay Link, Ethan Hardie, Marcus King, Jett Nelson.

The Odessa Tigers defeated Colton High School May 8 in the District tournament played at Northwest Christian in Colbert, then moved on to the District championship game against Almira-Coulee-Hartline on May 12 at the same location. The ACH Warriors defeated the Tigers 2-0 to take the championship. The Tigers took second place and move on to regional play against Pomeroy this coming weekend, May 18-19.


Three pitchers went to the mound for the Tigers, with Theron Schlomer starting things off. He pitched two innings, giving up four runs on two hits before Jett Nelson came on in relief in the third, giving up one run on three hits. Tim DeWulf relieved Nelson in the seventh and pitched the final inning, giving up another two runs but allowing no hits.


The Tiger bats were hot as Camden Weber and Josh Clark as each hit a double and collected three RBIs, while Weber also blasted a home run in the second inning. Jade Jennings and Jett Nelson each had two RBIs and Tim DeWulf had one.


The game against ACH was pretty much a pitching duel between Odessa's Theron Schlomer and ACH's Kentner. Each pitcher kept the opposing team's batters in check.

Schlomer gave up two runs on six hits, struck out six, walked two and threw a total of 88 pitches of which 55 were strikes. Kentner struck out 10 and walked none but achieved a shutout despite the five hits he gave up to the Tigers.

Theron Schlomer winds up his pitch Saturday in District play, pitching the entire game for the Tigers against ACH.


Odessa senior Colton Hunt got two hits in the game, and teammates Josh Clark, Eric Johnston and Marcus King had one hit each, but the Tigers left four stranded on base in a game in which runs were hard to come by.

For its part, ACH left eight stranded on base, but the two runners they were able to bring home were enough to give them the win.
