Your Berkner Rams traveled to Dallas Skyline on Friday to close out the 2-game district set. Coming off their best hit performance of the season the Rams bats posted an additional 8 hits in this second affair. Unfortunately the Rams also left 5 men on base including squandering a 1-out triple by freshman Cole Hill in the top of the 5th inning. Senior Tommy Kramer and freshman Cole Hill each posted multiple hits with zero strikeouts. The Rams lost 4-3.
The Skyline Raiders traveled to Ram Ballpark Tuesday. Your Berkner Rams welcomed the Raiders with their biggest hit explosion of the season. After squandering a 2-out double by junior Garrett Randall in the bottom of the 1st inning the Rams struck with consecutive 1-out singles by senior Tommy Kramer and sophomore Grant Mootz. Two additional consecutive hits came after the second out of the inning by sophomore Nick McLemore and freshman Cole Hill. Consecutive hits score runs and Berkner closed the inning with two. The bottom of the 4th would see additional singles by Mootz, McLemore, and senior Jack Rouse while mixing in a HBP and walks for Hill, junior Elias Munoz, and Randall extending the Rams lead to 4-0 after 4 complete. With momentum firmly in hand the Rams continued their hitting ways in the bottom of the 5th inning as Kramer, Mootz, and McLemore would all reach base on singles and with a Skyline error in the mix the Rams would plate an additional 3 runs to close the inning at 7-0 which is also where the game would end. Your Berkner Ram players of the game were Grant Mootz and Nick McLemore who were both a perfect 3 for 3 (3 singles) from the dish.

The JJ Pearce Mustangs traveled to Ram Ballpark on Friday. The Ram ball club honored their most inspirational teachers with a Teacher Appreciation pre-game where each teacher was escorted to the field by the baseball player that nominated them. They were each treated to a warm recognition by the fans, a team-signed baseball, and a free dinner at the game. Thanks teachers for everything you do!!!
As the game got underway on a beautiful Friday night both teams posted 3 scoreless innings. It was again, Berkner, who first broke the 0’s by posting individual runs in the 4th and 5th innings. Continue reading “JJ Pearce v Berkner”
Last evening one of Berkner’s very own, Jack Rouse was awarded the Dallas Football Officials Scholarship given annually to a football player based on academics, extra-curricular activities, and community service. The event took place at the Marriott in Addison where the National Football Foundation holds its annual banquet. There were 82 other high academic applicants from all over the metroplex vying for this award and we are happy to say they picked the very best person in Jack!
Last night your Ram baseball team traveled to the other side of 75 for a matchup with JJ Pearce. As has been the case recently the Rams jumped onto the Mustangs early. The Mustangs tried to score in the bottom of the first on a single to left field where senior Trey Verriere gloved the ground ball and fired a shot to sophomore catcher Grant Mootz beating the baserunner by several steps. In the top of the second senior Jordan Barr led off with a base hit and would score after a single by Mootz, staking the Rams to a 1-0 lead. JJP would respond in the bottom of the same frame knotting the score at 1. Our Ram hurler, junior Elias Munoz would battle 4 strong innings and platoon with senior Jack Rouse to keep the Rams within striking distance of the Mustangs. Ultimately, the Rams would struggle at the plate with 12 k’s registered to the Mustang pitchers and the game went to the ponies 4-1. Both clubs face-off again Friday at 730p at Ram ballpark.
The Berkner Lady Rams track team finished with an incredible performance on Friday night at the Nahum Martinez Invitational in Wylie. Finishing Second overall, they dominated in several events winning the 100, 200, 400, 4×1, 4×2 and 100 M Hurdles. Your Varsity Gold Medal Winners are as follows:
