Baseball Hawks hot, sweep Karns; HVA boys soccer rebounds to beat powerful West, Powell

Sweeping archrival Karns in back-to-back days, “the past couple of weeks have been real good” for Hardin Valley Academy baseball, HVA head coach Kirk Renegar said about his Hawks after winning nine of their last 12 games.

Meanwhile, HVA boys soccer shook off a season low point — a 3-2 loss at archrival Karns April 16 — to crush Powell before edging past traditional area power West. (More on soccer later in story)

Entering the week 12-16 overall, 6-7 in District 3-AAA, the Diamond Hawks whipped Karns 11-9 Thursday, April 22, then edged the Beavers 7-6 one day later behind the relief pitching of Nathan Richardson. “He’s been huge for us on the mound,” Renegar said of Richardson, who also picked up an April 19 win, as a starter, versus Campbell County (8-2).

Zach Ahmad “had a great week for us offensively,” the coach said about the junior, adding his team “hit well all week” and “executed the running game real well.”

Led by junior forward Nick Skoda’s four goals, Michael McLean’s HVA soccer boys blistered Powell 10-0 at HVA April 20. Dalton Guzman and Jonathan Perelman each added two goals.

Hitting the road two days later, the Hawks slid past West 1-0.

“Right now we’re starting to play a little bit more like a team; we went through a little period where individuals tried to take over,” said McLean, whose Hawks entered the week 6-3-1.

“Justin [Haskell] is playing well in the center-mid[field] and Dalton’s starting to create a lot of opportunities at forward.”
