Golfers begin shortened season

After a long wait, the combined Ely and Northeast Range boys golf team was able to get out on to the links this week.
The golfers started their season at an East Range Conference event in Virginia.
The young team is competing in ERC junior high events, and finished with a team score of 242.
Ty Fabish, an eighth-grader at Northeast Range, had team medalist honors with a score of 50 over nine holes.
Next best in the group was Ely’s Ben Cavalier, who shot a 59.
Kale Beno of Ely carded a 65, followed by Arrin Frank at 68. Ethan Zaitz, who attends NER, rounded out the scoring at 73.
Virginia won the event and the Blue Devils’ Brett Okland and Andrew Peterson shared medalist honors with matching 40s.
The golfers compete again Thursday, at Eveleth, while the junior high girls are slated to take part in a meet Tuesday at Hibbing.

Ironmen vault into playoff position with big weekend

Ely Echo staff report -

Three wins, including one in dramatic fashion, lifted the Vermilion Ironmen into second place in the Northern Division community college baseball standings.

Lukas Adelman's mammoth three-run homer in the bottom of the 12th gave Vermilion an 11-9 win over Hibbing Saturday afternoon at Veterans Memorial Field. The Ironmen lost the second game of Saturday's twinbill, but bounced back Sunday against the Cardinals and picked up 4-2 and 8-4 victories on the road.

The series win gives Vermilion a 4-2 record in division play, good for second place behind Rainy River (7-3). The two teams play a four-game set this weekend, with a May 5 doubleheader at International Falls and two more games the following day in Ely.

Ironmen return to the diamond

The Vermilion Ironmen’s record will show one victory Wednesday at Minnetonka, but all in all it can be argued the community college baseball team won twice that day.
Vermilion and Mesabi split a doubleheader on the artificial turf at Minnetonka’s Veterans Field,but the Ironmen may have picked up a victory just by getting out on to the field.
Vermilion dropped the opener 8-7 but bounced back and won the nightcap 8-3 behind the pitching of freshman Connor Knettel.
The contests were VCC’s first in a month and came after eight games were postponed in the previous two weeks.
Vermilion and Mesabi were set to open Northern Division play this weekend in Ely and Virginia, but the games were moved to Duluth and Superior, and later Iowa, and ultimately scrapped because of poor field conditions and anticipated wintry weather.
