COACH PRICE LEADS FOXES TO EXTRAORDINARY 26-4 RECORD

(Fort Collins, Colo., July 17, 2016) – With the guidance of Coach Riley Price and Assistant Coach Nathan Bowker, the Fort Collins Foxes ended their 2016 season 26-4. The final game of the season against the Windsor Beavers may have ended in a loss for the Foxes, but the team still holds an impressive record.

The Foxes took the lead in the first inning after Gunar Drinnen (Allen CC) slid onto home plate. A line drive hit by Cody Rowe (Pittsburg State) scored Josh Mondt (Concordia) in the bottom of the second inning. An RBI double hit by Reed Thompson (Murray State) advanced Greg Reynolds (Colorado Mesa) home, allowing the Foxes to maintain their lead in the third inning.

The Beavers responded to the Foxes by tying the score in the fourth inning and taking the lead with seven additional runs in the top of the fifth. The Foxes answered with two runs in the bottom of the fifth. An RBI double hit by short stop Greg Reynolds scored Gunar Drinnen. After a bases loaded forced-in walk, Reynolds scored the second run of the inning. No runs were scored by either team after the fifth inning, leaving the final score 10-5 Beavers.

Pitcher Dalton Dahley (Pikeville University) went 4 and 2/3 innings with four strikeouts. Matt Hicks (Fort Scott CC) threw 4 and 1/3 innings only allowed 1 run with 3 strikeouts. Hicks was able to hold the Beavers for final three innings. Greg Reynolds went 3 for 5 with 2 runs and 2 RBIs. Gunar Drinnen went 2 for 5 with 2 runs and 1 stolen base. Christian Heideger went 2 for 4 with a stolen base and a walk.

During today’s game, the Fort Collins Foxes inducted two members into the Foxes Hall of fame. Coach Bowker was recognized for his dedication to the team for the past few years. In 2014, Bowker hit .294 for the Foxes and was the only outfielder to win the team’s Gold Glove award. In 2015, he returned at center field and moved on to be the 2016 assistant coach for the team. Coach Price was inducted after several years in the league. In 2013, Price hit .359 for the Loveland Blue Jays. He then moved on to coach the Windsor Beavers in 2014, leading the team to the 2014 Centennial State League Championship. Price has coached the Foxes for the past two seasons, leading them to outstanding records. The Foxes chose to award their exceptional players of the season at the final home game. Catcher Christian Heideger ended his final season by being awarded the Gold Glove award. The Pitcher of the Year award was presented to John Keane (Redlands). Greg Reynolds ended the 2016 season by earning the Player of the Year award.
