On Thursday, May 11, the Mariners Boys’ Baseball Team brought home the Lake Su­perior Cup from Cook County in an 8-1 win over the Vikings. The Lake Superior Cup is a traveling trophy between Cook County and Silver Bay, and Coach Ward Wallin was proud of his team’s victory. Winning pitcher Jacob Carpenter had two hits and two RBIs (runs batted in), Jake Stadler had two hits, and Avery Thompson had two RBIs on one hit.

This victory came close on the heels of an­other victory on May 9, when the Mariners beat Two Harbors 5 – 1. Braylen Hoff was the winning pitcher, and Jake Stadler had two hits.

May 12 saw a loss of 5-4 to Mountain Iron- Buhl, but not without a two RBI double from Andrew Wehrman.

Coach Ward Wallin says, “The kids have bought into the system [of baseball] and un­derstand it’s a process. It ultimately starts with fundamentals and progresses from there. As young as we are, we are holding our own!”

By the time of publication, the Mariners should have a few more home games under their belts, ready to finish out their season with away games in Cook County and Crom­well. May your season finish strong with many great memories made.

Hello! My name is Haley Searls. I’ve loved writing from an early age, though my nonfiction writing at five years old consisted mainly of weather and gardening reports. I still have some of those early articles: “It’s sunny.” “It’s still sunny.” “It’s raining.” I’m glad to say my writing has improved since then. I wrote a guest post for the Silver Bay Public Library blog, and was the writer/editor of the newsletter for my American Heritage Girls troop. I have been writing for the North Shore Journal since June 2022. Besides writing, I love reading, drawing, photography, music, and spending time with family and friends. Two books that have really influenced my writing are Reforming Journalism by Marvin Olasky and Writer to Writer by Bodie and Brock Thoene. As a journalist, I want to share positive community interactions and inspire people to make lasting connections. Article topics that interest me are ones which show community activities and involvement. Such articles include community events, youth accomplishments, library programming, small businesses, local history, local artists and authors, art programs, and cultural events such as theater and dance. If you have an article idea, email the North Shore Journal with my name in the subject line! I look forward to hearing from you!
