The Turpin Boys have achieved some big things this season. They managed to secure their first winning season since 2013. They secured their first home playoff game since 2013, and won it in exciting fashion on Tuesday night vs. the Madiera Mustangs.
Turpin shut out Edgewood 7-0 Wednesday in the first round of the OHSAA state baseball playoffs in Trenton. Jake Silverstein pitched a complete game 3 hitter with 7 strikeouts and was bolstered by two inning-ending double plays in the third and fifth innings by the Spartans defense. Drew Sesler went 3-3 with a double and Jake Silverstein went 2-3 with a triple. Justin Silverstein and Matt Millikin also collected two hits apiece.

The Spartans (9-4 ECC, 12-11) extended their win streak to six with a solid come from behind 9-3 victory over Anderson. Before the game, Anderson extended an incredible gesture on their senior day by recognizing Turpin’s seniors with flowers and a small gift. What was even more special about the gesture is Anderson did not even have a single senior.
The Spartans fell to the Redskins 9-7 at a very windy Spartan Stadium last Tuesday and then 11-7 at Anderson on Wednesday. Turpin held narrow leads in both games, but couldn’t hold off Anderson.
The Varsity Spartans of Turpin Men’s Tennis (@TurpinMTennis) added a fourth consecutive ECC Championship to their collective resume. Coach Kate Rodgers’ squad added a first-place finish in the league tournament on Tuesday to an undefeated regular season league record, to complete the four-peat.
The Spartans got several clutch performances late to come back from a 3-0 deficit to surprise the Tigers 4-3 on Thursday. Turpin got six innings of solid pitching from Drew Sesler, great defense from center fielder Jake Silverstein, and two hits each from Justin Silverstein, Ryan Lambert and Will Blamer. Lambert was credited with the win and Matt Millikin provided the two-out game winning hit in the bottom of the seventh.
