Noah Borgerding

The KLPW Radio Athlete of the Week is Washington Senior Legion Baseball Player Noah Borgerding. It's been a terrific start to the season for Noah. He is currently hitting .423 with seven runs scored and five runs batted in. His on-base percentage is .464 and he is slugging .615. Noah played a big role in Sunday evening's 4-3 win over Elsberry. He had two hits with two runs. He usually plays first base, but showed his versatility Sunday night by playing right field. Noah threw out a base runner trying to advance from first to third on a hit to right in the seventh which proved to be a key play in the game. Noah is a graduate of St. Francis Borgia Regional High School in Washington and attended East Central College last year.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

On Saturday, September 6, our family lost a dear friend to a car accident. Listeners know her as Lexi the Impulse Puppy. It surprised us a bit just how much the loss struck us--a tribute to just how much that dog loved us--and just how much we loved that dog. Dogs are not the same as people, but they certainly tap into the very best of us.
