Elder Wins 1400th Baseball Game

The Elder baseball team reached another milestone in their championship tradition on Tuesday.  The Panthers 5-2 win over LaSalle marked the school’s 1400th win all-time in baseball.

With the game tied at 1-1, junior catch Sam Hauer crushed a two-run triple to give Elder a lead they would not relinquish.  The Panthers were led on the mound by senior Austin Koch who pitched 5 innings of 1 run ball.

Elder’s 1400 all-time wins in baseball are the most for any Ohio high school.  The Panthers 12 baseball state championships and 20 state tournament appearances also lead all high schools in the state.

Join Us for Grand Opening Ceremony of Jack Adam ’57 Baseball Stadium At Butch Hubert Family Panther Athletic Complex – April 19th

A grand opening ceremony will be held for the Jack Adam Baseball Stadium on Saturday, April 19th at the Butch Hubert Family Panther Athletic Complex at 11:00 a.m. The ceremony will take place prior to the Elder vs. Turpin double-header. The Panther Athletic Complex is located at 1915 Quebec Road.

The ceremony will feature an unveiling of the Jack Adam Baseball Stadium plaque; Elder’s Vocal Ensemble will perform the National Anthem, and Mr. Jack Adam will throw the ceremonial first pitch.

The Jack Adam Baseball Stadium is the final piece to the original Panther Athletic Complex plan. The 500 seat state-of-the-art baseball stadium will include three seating sections, bathrooms and a press box.

This is the final piece of the 2003 master plan according to original Panther Athletic Complex trustee and 1971 Elder alumnus Jim Daffin. Jim was instrumental, along with the other trustees, in getting the baseball field built and now he says, “This stadium is like putting a diamond in the ring setting. It will make Elder more competitive across the city. Who wouldn’t want to come and play baseball here?”

2014 Varsity Volleyball Preview

Via the Cincinnati Enquirer:

Team: Elder

Coach: Sean Tierney

2013 record: 19-9 (state runner-up)

Players to watch: Senior middle hitter Matt Nortmann, senior outside hitter Ben Smith, senior setter Nathan Herdeman

Outlook: Nortmann is a returning starter from last year’s team. He was a Second Team South Region and Second Team GCL winner. Last season, he led the team in blocks (115) and was second on the team in kills (189). He will be a key player on the offensive and defensive sides of the ball. Smith is a returning starter and was honorable mention in the South Region. He led the team in kills (192) last year. Herdeman, a returning starter, was 5-1 last year and set a new record for Elder with the most individual season assists. Tierney likes the depth of talent on this squad. “We are returning our setter, our two middles, one outside, and two backcourt specialist who have received significant playing time,” Tierney said. “In addition, our junior class is going to be solid; featuring players from a JV team that went a collective 23-1 in 2013. I am happy with the amount of experience that will be returning to our floor as well as the quality of talent that will be available from the rest of the members of the team.”
