  • Playoff Loss Ends Encouraging Season

    Despite falling 15-0 to #1-seeded New Hampton, the #4-seeded Kimball Union Wildcats played a strong game and capped off an encouraging season that saw tremendous improvement. Senior Chloe Rourke-Nicholas, helped by classmate Scout Beaupre's excellent defense at shortstop, held New Hampton off the board in the first inning, while KUA squandered a leadoff walk by Maddy Haynes to keep the game scoreless into the second. New Hampton chipped away, scoring three times in the second to take the lead before breaking the game open with single after single in the third. The Wildcat defense was strong, but the balls found the outfield green enough for New Hampton to rally for double digits in the inning. In the top half of the fifth, KUA got a leadoff single from senior Seana Perkins, followed by a double by junior Olivia Larose, but the Wildcats could not advance them home. Despite the loss, the future looks bright for KUA softball. The loss of Perkins, Rourke-Nicholas, Beaupre, and fellow senior Hannah McGrath leaves a big hole, but the emergence of freshmen Abby Flanagan, Shannon Moran, and Audrey Donahue is a significant boon for the team. In addition, sophomores Molly French, who adds athleticism and versatility, Lu Rodriguez, who went 1-for-2 at the plate in her at-bats, and Casey McCauley, who was solid on the mound all season, give KUA reliable depth. Juniors Katherine Lawton, Kate Mackey, Maddy Haynes, and Olivia Larose will help lead the way as the Wildcats look to climb the ranks of the Lakes Region.

  • Wildcats Play Well in Loss to Proctor

    On a beautiful day that saw the Wildcats honor seniors Chloe-Rourke Nicholas, Hannah McGrath, Scout Beaupre, and Seana Perkins, KUA played a strong game but ultimately came up short against Proctor. After falling behind 4-0 in the first half of the first inning, KUA earned two runs back as Maddy Haynes walked, Beaupre doubled, McGrath walked, and Rourke-Nicholas hit a sacrifice fly to score Haynes. Beaupre later scored on a wild pitch. The KUA defense went to work after that, with outstanding plays by left fielder Audrey Donahue and a Perkins throw to Beaupre at second base to pick off a would-be Proctor base stealer. Donahue also had two hits at the plate while classmate Shannon Moran hit a triple and scored twice and Katherine Lawton doubled and added a run scored. Casey McCauley pitched the first six innings for KUA before Rourke-Nicholas came on to pitch the seventh, retiring three Proctor batters on just five pitches, which included making an excellent diving catch off the mound. The loss cost the Wildcats a birth in the top four playoffs for the Lakes Region title, but the team will be back in action soon, hosting the 5 vs. 6 Lakes Region game on Wednesday in Meriden.

  • KUA Falls to Exeter

    The Wildcats surrendered eight runs in the top of the first inning and never recovered, falling 20-1 to Exeter on Wednesday in Meriden. A combination of Exeter's batting and KUA's defensive errors and walks contributed to a tough day in the field for the Wildcats. Offensively for KUA, senior captain Chloe Rourke-Nicholas led the way, going 3-for-3 at the plate with two singles, a double, and the team's only run scored. Freshman Audrey Donahue was 2-for-2 at the plate, while Maddy Haynes, Seana Perkins, and Katherine Lawton all had one hit each.

  • Seniors Lead Wildcats to Win

    Seniors Chloe Rourke-Nicholas, Seana Perkins, and Scout Beaupre all had big days to lead the Wildcats past the Brewster Bobcats in Wolfeboro on Monday. After the Wildcats gave up a lead in the second inning, Rourke-Nicholas came in to pitch in relief and proceeded to throw five shutout innings while striking out two. Perkins went 3-for-5 at the plate with three runs scored while Beaupre had two hits, two walks, and four runs scored. A strong junior class also contributed for KUA, as Olivia Larose had three hits and four runs scored while Maddy Haynes and Katherine Lawton each scored three. Fellow junior Kate Mackey was stellar defensively at first base. The freshman class was not to be outdone, as Abby Flanagan had two singles, a double, four RBIs, and three runs scored and classmates Shannon Moran and Audrey Donahue each had a hit, an RBI, and a run scored. Defensively, Lawton was sharp behind the plate while Beaupre made key plays, including turning two double plays, at shortstop. Rourke-Nicholas also snagged a comeback line drive on the mound with remarkable quickness and hand-eye coordination, reminiscent of the many hockey goalies on the KUA roster.

  • Offense Carries KUA to Victory

    After a rough first inning, which saw the Wildcats down 11-1, Kimball Union stormed back and eventually earned the mercy-rule 39-19 win over Holderness on Wednesday in Plymouth. Despite the runs against, many of which were the result of defensive miscues, KUA pitcher Casey McCauley was solid on the mound, striking out six batters in five innings. Shannon Moran was equally strong behind the plate. Offensively, Scout Beaupre led the way with five runs scored on three walks, a triple, and a monster three-run home run that soared over the fence in left field. Seana Perkins, Maddy Haynes, and Audrey Donahue also reached base five times and scored five runs each. Olivia LaRose and Chloe Rourke-Nicholas each scored four runs. Abby Flanagan added three runs of her own and had a double and a triple at the plate while Lu Rodriguez scored a run and added an RBI single.

  • Quiet Bats Hurt Wildcats

    The Kimball Union Wildcats managed just one hit, a line drive by Olivia LaRose with two out in the fifth inning, and struck out 13 times in five innings in a lopsided loss to New Hampton on Wednesday at KUA. The game started well, as shortstop Chloe Rourke-Nicholas converted a double play to keep the game 0-0 after one inning. New Hampton managed one run in the second and the KUA outfield of Audrey Donahue, Maddy Haynes, and LaRose was stellar defensively. Taking a 1-0 lead into the third, New Hampton broke the game open with a four-run inning, followed by an eight-run fourth inning before putting up two more in the fifth. Casey McCauley and Kate Mackey shared the pitching duties for KUA, each striking out one batter.

  • Good Start Not Enough as Wildcats Stung by Hornets

    The top half of the first inning saw the visiting KUA Wildcats take a 4-0 lead over the Proctor Hornets, but some defensive miscues and potent Proctor bats prevailed in the end, taking a 17-7 decision. Maddy Haynes and Scout Beaupre once again led the offensive attack, scoring twice each, while first-year player Abby Flanagan continued to look like a softball lifer, belting two hits and an RBI. Chloe Rourke-Nicholas added an RBI double. Rourke-Nicholas and Beaupre were stellar defensively as well, each making several great plays, some of the diving variety. The battery of pitcher Casey McCauley and catcher Katherine Lawton went the distance for the Wildcats.

  • Strong Start, Tough Finish for Wildcats

    The Kimball Union Wildcats started the game well and took a 5-5 tie into the fifth inning before St. Paul’s put up two big innings to take the win in Concord. Maddy Haynes led the way again for KUA, reaching base four times, belting two doubles, and scoring two runs. Three freshmen also figured prominently in the KUA attack as Shannon Moran had two hits and a run scored while Audrey Donahue and Abby Flanagan each had a hit and a run scored. Casey McCauley pitched five innings for KUA before yielding to Kate Mackey for the final inning.

  • KUA Starts Well but Falls to Tilton

    Maddy Haynes and Scout Beaupre each had two hits and two runs scored, but the Wildcats fell to Tilton on the road. Beaupre led off the game with a single and Haynes cranked a triple to bring Beaupre home. Katherine Lawton’s deep sacrifice fly scored Haynes during the next at-bat. Tilton answered in its half of the first, taking advantage of a couple of defensive miscues by KUA while putting up seven runs. In the third, Beaupre and Haynes repeated their first-inning performance, with Beaupre singling and Haynes reaching third on an infield hit and an errant throw. Haynes later scored on a passed ball. The highlights were few after that for the Wildcats, though Olivia LaRose went 1-for-2 at the plate and had several nice catches in left field and Shannon Moran was excellent behind the plate as KUA’s catcher. Casey McCauley and Kate Mackey shared the pitching duties.

  • Wildcats Come Close but Drop Season Opener

    Maddy Haynes had three hits, three runs scored, and five RBIs while Scout Beaupre and Audrey Donahue also scored three runs but the KUA Wildcats ultimately fell 12-11 to the Northfield-Mount Hermon Hoggers in the season opener on Wednesday. KUA was spurred by a six-run fourth inning, that included a bases-loaded, bases-clearing double by Haynes and RBI doubles by Beaupre and Olivia Larose. Casey McCauley went the distance on the mound for KUA while catcher Seana Perkins had a two-out RBI single in the top of the seventh to put KUA up by one. Taking an 11-10 lead into the bottom of the seventh, the Wildcats were within one strike of winning until a windswept fly-ball found its way onto the grass to give NMH the walk-off win.
