Loss of father didn’t halt Kentlake baseball coach’s success | Coach of the Year

The Kentlake High baseball team spent pretty much the entire spring on an emotional high, winning game after game on the way to a state finals berth at Safeco Field. On that same diamond, however, coach Jason Evans was in the midst of an emotional roller coaster ride, stemming from the loss of his father Dale, who passed away April 14 after a short bout with lung cancer.

After disappointment on draft day when he didn’t get a phone call

Atlanta Braves draft Kentlake’s ‘Big Fella’ Voelkel

He took a flight to Florida a couple Tuesdays ago. But had Ryan Voelkel thought about it, he probably could’ve skipped the flight and flown south using nothing but his two arms. That’s just how much of a high the former Kentlake High star was on. And who could blame him? The big fella, in a roundabout sort of way, had realized a lifelong dream less than a two days earlier and was busy packing his belongings – and dreams – in a suitcase and bracing for the next step in his baseball career. That next step for Voelkel, a 6-foot-6 230-pound first baseman is playing for the Atlanta Braves rookie league affiliate in the Gulf Coast League.

Kentwood’s Jessie Genger was dominant at the net during the fall

Jill-of-all-trades Kentwood junior is Female Athlete of the Year

Basketball or volleyball? Volleyball or basketball? When it comes to Kentwood High’s Jessie Genger, coaches tend to have different opinions on which is her better sport. Understandably so. Genger, a 5-foot-11 junior, has been equally impressive in both the last several years. But this past school year, there simply wasn’t anyone better. And because of that, Genger has been chosen from a strong field as the Reporter’s Female Athlete of the Year.
