In appreciation for the loyalty of Student/Athletes participating in the camp during past summers, HoS has created a special program this year to go along with the deep discount for early registration.

Once a new friend registers for the camp s/he is eligible to start referring friends and teammates and accumulating "HOS Bucks'. Once those extended friends register they can take part in the program too and so on in true Seven Degrees Within Kevin Bacon fashion.
(registrants may be referred only one time)\


~For every half-day registrant referred you receive $5 in HOS Bucks.
~For every full-day registrant referred you receive $10 in HOS Bucks.
~You may also use HOS Bucks toward your camp registration fee!
~No limit on HOS Bucks you can earn.
~Associations may create code and earn equipment!

The way to be sure an S/A gets credit is to have friends enter YOUR LAST NAME in the field 

PROMO CODE just below the lunch order section on the left hand side of the online registration form.

HOS Bucks are redeemable for Mini-Balls, MLS Soccer Cards, PUGG Goals, posters and any of the items shown here below

Spartan Offense Stifled, Seven Game Win Streak 

Snapped in 5-1 Road Loss to Baldwin-Wallace

BEREA, OH – The Case Western Reserve University baseball team saw its seven game win streak snapped, 5-1, on Friday, April 8 visiting local rival Baldwin-Wallace College at Heritage Field. With the setback, the Spartans drop to 21-11 on the season.

The Spartan offense, which had been averaging over ten runs during their win streak, managed only one score during a game dominated by pitching. Jon Capadona twirled five innings of one run ball for B-W and was relieved by Bill Bostelman, who shutout the Spartans over the last four frames to preserve the win.

Case grabbed its lone run in the sixth inning when junior Sam Alexander (Alexandria, VA/T.C. Williams) scored on a double play ball. Senior Devin Dye (Canton, OH/Jackson) pitched 6.2 innings for the Spartans, allowing five runs and taking the loss to fall to 2-2 on the season. Freshman Ray Kelly (Rochester, NY/Aquinas Institute) hurled the final 1.1 frames, allowing just one hit and striking out one.

The Spartans will be back on the field Sunday, April 10 visiting Muskingum University. First pitch is scheduled for 1:00 p.m.
