Final Weekend and CCBC Championship Update

The 2015 CCBC Regular Season is winding down and the league title will be decided this weekend. The good news, the Dawgs control their own destiny.  Heading into the final weekend before the CCBC Tournament, the Dawgs have a 17-7 record in conference games, Thompson River University sits one game back with a record of 16-8.  Three Dawg wins will clinch the 2015 regular season title.

 

The Dawgs are being lead this season by a combination of first year players and sophomore veterans. Newcommers Matt Malec and Mitch Grisbook are hitting .394 and .361 respectively. Both have been fighting for at bats this season in a lineup filled with capable hitters. The two hitters will be looking to stay hot the next week and half heading into the CCBC Championships.

 

Veterans: Tyson Zarowny (.359) Dylan Mckenna (.353) Troy Blad (.323) Josh Wray (.319) and Tanner Banks (.315) are all hitting over .300 heading into the final weekend. The group of 5 have combined for 65 RBI’s during the regular season. If the team wants to clinch the top spot these players will need to continue to drive in those runs.

 

Another newcomer, Cory Scammell is in his first year with the program. The first year Dawg with minor league experience has been a staple at the top of Coach Hubka’s lineup. The 6’5” 225lb Scammell has been scorching CCBC pitching this year with .361 batting average, 17 runs and 19 RBI’s in 83 at bats.  The Edmonton, AB native will be a key player for the Dawgs as they look to capture their 5th straight CCBC Championship.  

 

On the mound the Dawgs have been led by two veteran pitchers, Ben Kennedy and Clark Grisbrook. The duo has 9 of the teams 17 wins in league games this year. Kennedy and Grisbrook have been tough to hit all season. The pair have held hitters to a .203 and .281 opponents batting average respectively with ERAs of 1.21 for Kennedy and 2.89 for Grisbrook.  Two more pitchers to watch as we get closer to the CCBC Tournament are Pat Kelley and Luc Hebert who are both coming off injury, and looking to get healthy just in time for PBA’s run at 5 straight Championships.

 

The Dawgs have adjusted the schedule slightly for the final weekend. Starting Sunday at 4:00pm PBA will take on Okanagan College in a double header at Spitz Stadium. The second game will be under the lights as the Dawgs prepare for the primetime games during the CCBC Tournament May 7-10 at Spitz Stadium home of the Lethbridge Bulls. Monday the Dawgs will play the Coyotes again, the first game at 1:00pm at Lloyd Nolan yard, the second at 7:00pm at Spitz Stadium.
