For the Toppers it was an exciting Friday evening as they took game one in the doubleheader over Colfax after a tough week of losses to Clayton/Turtle Lake and Spring Valley.
Glenwood City fell to Turtle Lake/Clayton 7-1 in a non-conference game played in Turtle Lake last Monday, April 29.
Glenwood City then traveled to Spring Valley on Thursday, May 2, and kept the game within reach until the conference co-leading Cardinals scored a run in each of the last three innings to take a 6-0 win. The Hilltoppers had only two hits in the seven-inning game.
The last games of the week were a doubleheader between the Glenwood City Hilltoppers and the Colfax Vikings played in Glenwood City. It was the first time this season that the Toppers hosted a baseball game. Glenwood City claimed a satisfying 5-1 victory over the Vikings after Colfax came out flat on the mound. But the second game would be a different story for the Toppers as they were unable to get anything to connect on the bat barrels and struggled with pitching as the Vikings took a 14-3 win.
The Toppers welcomed Durand to the diamond on Monday evening, May 6, before taking a three day rest period. Thursday, May 9, Glenwood City will be back at home against the Elk Mound Mounders for a pair of five-inning games followed by three more home games against Elmwood/Plum City, Boyceville and Mondovi on May 10, 13 and 14.
The Hilltopper men traveled to Turtle Lake on Monday evening, April 29, to take on the Clayton/Turtle Lake Lakers in a game that would go to the Lakers by a score of 7-1.
Tanner Davis was the only Topper to score for Glenwood City in the sixth inning of the game. Davis also collected two of Glenwood City’s three game hits.
Bryce Fayerweather came in to relieve starting pitcher Hadin DeSmith in the third inning and struck out six of the Lakers’ batters in his four innings of work. Fayerweather gave up only one hit against Clayton/Turtle Lake and was struck out twice when up to bat.
Glenwood City’s Daniel Loring was credited with the team’s lone RBI and was one-of-one from the plate.

Scoring in the first inning was Gavin Janson off a single to left field, followed by a run from Thomas Moede, who came in as a courtesy runner for Bryce Fayerweather.
Daniel Loring and Brandyn Hallquist scored one play later after a single was hit to left field and then an error in throwing to home allowed Hallquist to score.
Two innings later, Glenwood City scored its final run after four straight walks allowed Cole Logghe to walk home.
