5 stars for May 19

It didn't rain! Kosmo is sorry for being absent last week, but the fact everything not under the sun (get the pun?) was postponed due to awful weather. But there were plenty of sunny skies and great individual performances under perfect weather on Monday so Kosmo here to offer his 5 stars. 5th star Jordan Ewald, Farmington Hills Mercy softball - In a Mercy lineup full of young stars it is still nice to have a veteran glue player. Ewald sure is that, as she had two hits and five RBI in an 11-4 win over Ladywood in the Catholic League A-B final. 4th star John Van Hoef, Troy Athens baseball - Call him the area's king of walk-off grand slams. Van Hoef hit his second walk-off grand slam of the year to finish off a 13-2 win over Bloomfield Hills in the second game of a doubleheader. As a result, Athens is in first place in the OAA Blue. 3rd star Allie Barsh, Wixom St. Catherine softball - Obviously more attention should be paid to this program that won its first ever Catholic League C-D title. Barsh was a big reason why, hitting a 2-run single in the 6th inning to provide the winning runs. 2nd star Amelia Denison, Southfield Christian softball - A powerful bat for a small school, Denison had quite a day in the first game do a DH sweep over Parkway Christian, collecting four hits and 7 RBI. No wonder a university was named after her. 1st star Jim Crosby, Birmingham Groves baseball - No doubt former player Pat Caputo is proud. One of the pillars of high school baseball in the state recorded his 700th win on Monday with a win over Cranbrook. Everyone say "Hey! Hey!" In salute.
