A total of 30 boys and 28 girls ByTOMBARBOUR Tribune Sports Writer If you were Highland High School baseball coach Ron Dill, you might be calling Greg Pilkington this week for advice. Dill, you see, is in the same boat Pilkinglon was last week. The Huskies meet Denver Christian in the semifinal round of the Class AA playoffs Saturday at 1 p.m. in Pierce. Denver Christian had little trouble posting a 5-0 win over Pilkington's Valley club last week to advance while the Huskies were knocking off St. Mary's. The story of Valley's loss was Crusader righthander Ray VanderWal. The All- Metropolitan League selection fired a three-hitter at the Vikings, sending 11 hiking back to the dugout after striking out. Pilkington,' who at one time played leftfield for the University of Northern Colorado, sounds just like Bear coach Tom Petroff when offering ideas on how to defeat Denver Christian. "It's a matter of getting the offense going," he said. "Highland has to hit the ball and make their (Denver Christian's) defense play it." Petroff would call that creating a situation. Pilkington probably thinks he knows VanderWal like the back of his hand after last Saturday, but he's still wondering about the Denver Christian defense. "We never really found out what kind of defense they have," Pilkington said. "When you have U guys strike out in seven innings, you really don't get to see a whole lot."". That's true. VanderWal personally handled 11 of the 21 putouts in the game with the strikeouts. In addition to the Ks, the Vikings had eight batters ground out, one foul out and one popup in the infield. Of the eight ground outs, three were to the mound, two to Denver Christian second baseman Greg Ham, a pair to first sacker Dave Van Eps and one to third baseman Scott Hamstra. Hamstra caught the foul popup and Ham handled the infield pop. The three Crusader outfielders -- Jim Dumler, Randy Traitor and Steve Wolffis never touched the ball, and shortstop Eric Forseth only got his hands on it when it was thrown around the infield after another strikeout. The only time Denver Christian came close to an error was when VanderWal slipped in the wet grass coming off the mound to field Dale Rains' bunt in the first inning. He kept his composure, however, and quickly regained his feet to throw. Rains out at first as a Valley runner advanced. But Pilkington is convinced of what needs, to he done. "They have to hit VanderWal," he said. "They have to make Denver Christian make a play on the ball." Hey, Ron, did ya get all that? Debbie Shaw loses Greeley West's Debbie Shaw lost both of her matches in the Girls' State Tennis Tournament last weekend at the Air Force Academy. On Friday, she took the first set from Ellen Sigman of Thomas Jefferson at number-three singles by 64, but rain delayed the match, and Miss Sigman came back Saturday to win the next two sets, 6-3, 6-2. Miss Sigman then advanced to the finals, allowing Miss Shaw another chance in the consolation bracket. But Beth Blakey of Pueblo South defeated Miss Shaw, 6-1, 6-1. participated in the annual event.
