Salina Central Baseball – Team of the Month – Presented by Visit Wichita

By Matt Browning

The Salina Central baseball team was chosen as the Visit Wichita Team of the Month for May. The Mustangs defeated Wichita North in a doubleheader on April 1 then split a doubleheader with Eisenhower on April 13.

“We expected to be strong defensively,” said Salina Central coach Dee Kolzow. “We were concerned about pitching, as we only had one pitcher back that had thrown varsity. He is not able to throw more than an inning or two, due to an injury, and we’re not sure when or if he will be able to get back to throw more. We have played well defensively and really pleased with our pitchers to this point.”

That pitcher who is out is Caden Kickhaefer, who was honorable mention all-league in 2019. Joining Kickhaefer is Dakota Hogan, who was an honorable mention all-league pitcher and second basemen in 2019.

Kolzow just wants his team to continue to progress like they have through the first half of the regular season where they started 7-3.

“After missing last season we just want to improve every game,” Kolzow said. “Our league is really good and fairly even from top to bottom from what I see.”

Against North, Hogan and Kickhaefer drove in seven runs and scored 10 and in Central’s win over Eisenhower, they each recorded a hit.
