Coach Swope picks up 1,000 wins at CBHS

Colonial Beach High School baseball head coach Steve Swope has reached another milestone in his career. After defeating James Monroe, the 34-year veteran coach has now won a total of 1,000 games in both baseball (483) and basketball (517). “I hadn’t realized it until a good friend of mine called to tell me he was tracking it,” Swope said. “It’s attributed to having lots of good players, and good assistant coaches.”

Last week, the Drifters picked up two wins to push their unblemished record to 4-0 on the season. After rescheduling, due to inclement weather, the Drifters defeated West Point, and James Monroe at home.

CBHS 3 – West Point 2
In a hard fought battle, Sophomore Drifter pitcher Nick Graves pitched a seven inning complete game to lead his team over the Pointers. Graves allowed a total of two unearned runs, but he gave up three hits, while striking out eight—and walked only one batter. In the end, the game proved to be his best outing of the season.

In the fourth inning, with two outs, the Drifters punched across three runs. Jason Vickery and Josh Thomas produced two singles to get the Drifter machine started. Devin Davis drove in the first run with a single to left field, and Sidney Horton crushed a clutch two-run RBI single to right field to complete the scoring.

Although West Point threatened in the top of the seventh by scoring two unearned runs, and latter bringing the tying run to the plate, the Drifters responded with solid pitching. Graves struck out two of the last three batters to preserve the victory.

CBHS 18 – JM 8
In the face of freezing temperatures, the Drifters pounded out 19 hits, that resulted in 18 runs against two James Monroe pitchers. They produced their biggest offensive output of the season, as they pummeled the Yellow Jackets, 18-8.

Sophomore Kamron Smith picked up his second mound victory of the season, as he allowed two runs (one earned run), two hits, while striking out five—and hitting one batter. To aid his cause, Smith scored five runs on offense.  His plate production included a double, single, three walks, and one RBI.

Batting third, and fourth, short stop, Nick Graves, and first baseman, Carlos Bermudez became a two-man wrecking crew. Graves stroked a three-run homerun in the first inning, and later added a run scoring single. He also produced a run on a sacrifice fly. Bermudez supplied a base clearing three-run triple, RBI double, and RBI grounder.

Senior catcher, Josh Thomas continued his torrid hitting with a double, two singles, two RBIs, and two runs scored.

Sophomore second baseman, Ryan Thomas singled twice, driving in a run, and scoring three runs. Devin Davis smacked a double, single, and scored two runs.

Dion Gonzalez lined two singles, stole a base, and scored two runs. Jason Vickery supplied two singles, and a run scored. Carter Foster singled, and scored, while teammate Gavin Lutz rounded out the hit brigade with a double.

The Drifters are now 4-0 overall, and will play three games this coming week. The Drifters will host King & Queen on Wednesday, March 27 in a make-up game. They will finish out the week on Friday, March 28 with a game featuring Northhampton (from the Maryland Eastern Shore), at the unfriendly confines of West Point. Results from the King & Queen game on Tuesday were not available due to press deadlines.

Please note this week will be last chance to order mulch. Delivery will be on Saturday morning, March 30.
