Prep baseball
Salisbury baseball coach Scott Maddox announced that senior Scott Van der Poel has verbally committed to Gardner-Webb’s baseball program and plans to sign soon.
Van der Poel is a right-handed hitting first baseman and outfielder. He batted .463 with 15 RBIs as a junior and is batting .361 so far this season.
Salisbury is currently playing in a tournament in Orlando, Fla.
A story on Van der Poel is upcoming.
While there is no Cliff Peeler Baseball Classic in Salisbury this year, there will be plenty of baseball on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at CMC-NorthEast Stadium. Carson, East, South and West will take on Mount Pleasant, Northwest Cabarrus, A.L. Brown and Robinson in the annual Rowan vs. Cabarrus Challenge. The tournament pairings are in Scoreboard.
Before the tourney, South has a big NPC makeup game at North Iredell on Tuesday, while East is playing Glenn at home on Tuesday. North Rowan is playing at Central Davidson on Wednesday.
North’s game last Thursday with East Montgomery was suspended in the third inning with the Cavaliers down 5-1. The schools haven’t yet agreed on a date to complete the contest.

Intimidators win
The Kannapolis Intimidators rallied from a five-run deficit to beat Hickory 12-11 at CMC-NorthEast Stadium on Sunday.
It was the first win of the season for the Intimidators.
Kannapolis trailed by two runs with two outs and no one on base in the ninth before pulling the game out.
First baseman Leighton Pangilinan has started the season hot, and he had the game-winning single in the ninth. It was his third hit of the contest.
Rangel Ravelo homered for the Intimidators. A fortunate fan won a year’s supply of toilet paper because Ravelo homered during the “Seven Oaks Seventh Inning Slam.”
