WARDSVILLE - Jacob Koelling put up some strong numbers on the mound last season for the Blair Oaks Falcons.

An ERA of 1.44 in a team-high 43 2/3 innings probably should have resulted in better than a 4-4 record. The junior is off to a similar start this year, with a 1 in the win category.

Koelling threw six innings of one-hit ball Monday as the Falcons blanked the New Bloomfield Wildcats 5-0 in the season opener for both teams.

"What a performance for a first-time out," Blair Oaks coach Harv Antle said. "He was efficient, threw strikes, hit spots and kept his pitch count down."
