(Elk Horn) The regular season is now in the books for the Exira-EHK baseball team. The Spartans closed out part one of their season with a 7-3 win against Boyer Valley on Wednesday. They'll play either AHST or West Harrison in the district tourney Tuesday, July 16th.
Leading the way in the final regular season game was sophomore Zach Kliefoth with another dominant pitching performance. Kliefoth struck out a season high 14 batters and allowed only three hits and two walks over seven innings. He improves to 5-2 on the season with a 2.28 ERA.
At the plate Kliefoth helped out his own cause with a two run double in the third inning. Coach Tony Petersen says Tabor Anderson's double and a Jared Hansen RBI single were other key hits in the game.
