It was the first GIF baseball title ever won by a Valley area team. And amazingly, it was accomplished by a team made up of freshmen, sophomores and juniors. It also marks the first GIF crown for a Valley area team since St. Genevieve of Panorama City walked off with the "A" football title in 1966. "I can't believe it ... it's the greatest thrill of my life," said coach Jay Merrill after the game. The Panthers opened the playoffs by beating Gate, 26-4; blanking Paraclete of Lancaster, 2-0, and beating Bishop, 5-3, to gain the finals berth. Quick, a llth grader, limited the usually hard-hitting Valley Christian batters to six hits and would have had a shutout without four errors committed by his teammates. The tension that began mounting for the team early n the day reached a crescendo with the approach of ,he final half inning. Three outs stood between Quick and the championship. It's funny," he told The News afterwards, "I felt more pressure early in the game. When I walked out there in the seventh, I had all the confidence in the world." He retired the sids in order, getting Don Hibma to pop out -weakly to the second baseman then striking out Tim Tiemens and the dangerous hitting cleanup hitter, Calvin Spoolstra. It was a frustrating loss for the Crusaders, which had rolled past a strong Ontario team, 10-3, in its semi-final game. The Panthers scored three runs in the first inning without the benefit of a hit, then made them stand up the rest of the way. Chuck Severns and Wayne Reed opened up with walks before a balk by Valley Christian pitcher Darrell Brux- woort moved both men into scoring position. Severns scored on an in- iield out, Reed taking third. Weyland followed by reaching first base when hit by a pitch then Scaife delivered his clutch two-run single. The Panthers got a man on base in every other inning except the seventh, but never threatened to score again.
