Watson relishing relief role for Buffanblu; Stremick swinging hot bat for 1st-place Falcons




Cade Watson

Punahou baseball  •   #30  P/OF  Junior

Cade Watson is doing his best to make up for lost time.

After his sophomore season of baseball never materialized due to a torn knee ligament he suffered during basketball season, the Punahou junior is thriving on the diamond this spring.

Watson, a 6-foot-1, 190-pound right-handed pitcher, has logged a team-high 16 1/3 innings pitched with a 3.44 earned run average. He found himself right in the middle of a couple of breakthrough games for the Buffanblu last week.

In a 7-4 win over PAC-5 last Tuesday, Watson recorded two no-hit innings in relief of starter Nathan Overbeek to log his first save of the season. Watson threw 18 of his 26 total pitches for strikes and struck out the side in the top of the seventh inning to finish off his team's first Interscholastic League of Honolulu win of the year after an unprecedented 0-5 start to league play.

"In a way, you want to say every game carries the same amount of importance, but for us, never having started the year oh-and-five, we all felt like that game was our World Series," Punahou coach Keenan Sue said.

Sue brought Watson in from the bullpen to start the sixth inning. He faced the Wolfpack's middle of the lineup – their fourth, fifth and sixth batters in the card – and set them down in order.

"Cade wanted the ball. He was excited, but not overexcited and he stayed within himself and threw strikes. I think for all of us it was a big game and he came into that situation and dealt with the pressure and rose to the occasion, or as we like to say, sunk to the level of his training," Sue added.

The Buffanblu followed up the much-needed victory over PAC-5 with a second win in a span of three days in the form of Saturday's 5-2 win in extra innings over then-No. 2 Saint Louis. Sue and his staff used much the same formula as they did against the Wolfpack. That is, starting pitcher Micah Shintaku went four innings before he gave way to Watson, who did not allow a hit over five scoreless innings of relief.

Watson struck out four batters, walked two and was the pitcher of record after Punahou plated three runs in the top of the ninth inning. He tallied 35 strikes of his 54 total pitches thrown. Watson faced the minimum 15 batters after he was aided a couple of times by catcher Jake Tripp, who threw out a pair of baserunners after Watson had put them on via walks in the sixth and seventh innings.

Sue pointed out that both batterymates had a hand in eliminating both would-be base-stealers. He explained that since Watson's first two outings – losses to Mid-Pacific and Kamehameha – the junior has worked to speed up his delivery to the plate.

"He's a power pitcher and a lot of times power pitchers have a bigger leg kick and that was exposed – as it should have been – and both Mid-Pac and Kamehameha ran all over us. We had a discussion with Cade about toning down the leg kick and being quicker to home. Since then he made that adjustment and it gave Jake Tripp, our catcher, a chance to throw some guys out, so he did get some help from Jake by him making a couple of great throws, but he also helped Jake out by being quicker to home," Sue said.

The ACL injury forced Watson to take in the 2023 baseball season from a different perspective. In hindsight, it proved to be beneficial, Sue said.

"You can't fake adversity and the only way to know that you can work through challenges in life is to actually be challenged in life and so I think the injury was a proverbial blessing in disguise for him. It taught him some humility with some actual physical adversity that he had to have the motivation and perseverance to work through and I think he has a gratefulness to be able to just compete alongside his friends and teammates now," Sue described.

Watson is capable of playing the outfield and swinging the bat, but has mostly been limited to pitching. Sue said Watson's baseball IQ was evident in the long relief outing against the Crusaders Saturday.

"Every pitcher wants to be a starter, but what's helping Cade and our team is that we're starting to figure out that everybody needs to do what they need to do to help the team win and Cade has accepted that role and it's been a good formula for us. When Saint Louis came back and tied it, instead of going full tilt, he throttled back because he knew that we needed more innings from him so he left a little bit in the tank, which I thought was tremendous self-awareness – he did that without us telling him to do it – so I think that's a signal that this is just the tip of the iceberg for his success and I think he's going to be one of the best pitchers in the state, if not already. He has one or two Division I (scholarship) offers already and I'm sure there will be more to come when people learn how self-aware and how much of a competitor he is," Sue said.

Watson has three pitches in his arsenal: a fastball, change-up and a slider.

"He can throw all three pitches for strikes in any count. I wouldn't say any one pitch is overpowering, but his velocity is good enough for our league – mid to upper 80s – that it will keep guys off balance. I think what's great about him is even though he throws hard, he's not just a hurler, he's a pitcher and he's going to challenge hitters. That doesn't always mean he's going to throw the fastball, but he can locate and he believes that he is going to win. It's an authentic confidence that he has that is based on the amount of preparation that he puts in," Sue said.

Watson worked diligently over the offseason to prepare himself for the ILH gauntlet. Sue credited the sweat equity Watson has put in with the Buffanblu pitching coaches, as well as private coach Ashkhon Kuhaulua, a former Kamehameha standout and college pitcher.

"Cade deserves a lot of credit for his own preparation. He's really prepared well and it's showing up now. He's a consummate competitor and wants the ball all the time. He's focused on his preparation and his process – he's very serious about his pitching preparation – and because he buys into the process, when he shows up to the field he's prepared, he's confident and he believes he can win every pitch. He kind of controls the pace and the tempo and that whole package put together gives him a mound presence that is formidable," Sue said.

Watson's younger brother, Daly, led Punahou's intermediate team in hitting this season. Their father, Derrick, serves as Chief Judge of the U.S. District Court for the state.

"I think that sort of discipline and focused has definitely assisted Cade and his brother Daly, both are tremendous athletes and have natural leadership qualities," Sue added.

Punahou was dealt a 3-0 loss at the hands of No. 1 Kamehameha Tuesday afternoon.

Watson and the Buffanblu (2-6) will look to rebound when they take on Damien (3-5) Thursday at Patsy T. Mink/Central Oahu Regional Park. First pitch is slated for 3:30 p.m.

Naomi Stremick

Kalani softball  •   #16  OF/P  Sophomore

There has been no shortage of offense for the Kalani softball team this spring.

The red-hot Falcons lead all of Division I statewide in both base hits and runs scored and rank second in runs batted in. Naomi Stremick has certainly contributed to the cause as the sophomore is the team leader in nearly every major offensive category.

Stremick, a 5-foot-7 centerfielder, has been swinging a hot stick this year, to say the least. She ranks second in the Oahu Interscholastic Association amongst all D1 players in base hits (18), fifth in runs batted in (17), first in runs scored (19) and second in batting average (.643).

Not many know her better than her coach – and mother -- Iris Stremick. Naomi is the youngest of four siblings in the Stremick household. Her older sister, Leona, is a senior third baseman for the Falcons.

"She hasn't struck out (this season), she rarely does," Iris Stremick said.

Naomi Stremick has hit safely in all nine games this season. The lefty has recorded three hits in each of her team's last three games.

"She knows what she's looking for. She has a plan going in, she has an idea of what people may be throwing her and she has power, but is also able to hit for contact if they're not pitching her in her zones. If need be, she'll put the ball in play," Iris Stremick said.

Last week was one to remember, to be sure, for Naomi Stremick. In two games, she combined to go 6 for 6 at the plate with 11 RBI and five runs scored. Stremick slugged a pair of home runs in both Thursday's 11-6 win over Castle and Saturday's 20-0 rout of Kahuku.

Coach Stremick said the recent display of power is a result of Naomi's focused approach in the batter's box.

"This year it's been kind of a windy season, so we've really tried to focus on the girls hitting hard liners less than hitting the long bomb, so even though she's recently had a couple of homers, her focus has always been hitting hard liners," Iris Stremick said.  

Iris Stremick describes her daughter as a cerebral player who is cognizant of "the bigger picture of things."

"She picks up a lot of things that we hadn't even talked about or recognized. When she was younger she used to watch a lot of baseball because her older siblings played baseball and softball, so she's been around the game and picked up things from her brothers and sisters and cousins that I didn't even realize she knows or understands. I think for her, her mind is her strength and she understands the game well and has really developed that. She might not be the fastest runner, but she steals bases because she reads well or anticipates well," Iris Stremick said.

Occasionally, however, Naomi tends to overanalyze things and becomes her own worst enemy.  

"Her mind is her strength, but it can also be her weakness. When she's down it's usually because she's overthinking things and I think the hardest game to play is the game right after you've been successful and you're trying to do more, but this past week she was more relaxed, just trying to loosen up her hands so they're not so tight and just trying to be more on time and staying aggressive but also being selective at the same time. She's in a good mindset right now and I hope that continues," Iris Stremick said.

Naomi Stremick drew a walk in her first plate appearance Thursday against Castle, but got the scoring started in her next at-bat. She belted a three-run home run – on the first pitch she saw – over the fence in right field to ignite a nine-run bottom of the third inning for the Falcons.

"It was a high change-up that kind of hung so she went after that one," Coach Stremick recalled.

Later in the same inning, Stremick came up to bat again and laced a single back up the middle to score Kylie Tanimura. In her final plate appearance, she crushed a solo homer to right with two outs in the bottom of the fifth inning to stretch her team's lead to 10-4.

"I believe it was an inside pitch and she took it pretty deep. It's one of the farther hits she's had. It one-hopped the tennis court fence at Kilauea (District Park) – that was pretty fun to see. Straight off the bat she knew that it was going far. When she's tight and compact with her swing, you know that she's going to do some good things there," Iris Stremick said.

It was more of the same out of Stremick Saturday against Kahuku. She smacked a two-run home run in the top of the first inning and had a couple of trips to the plate in a 14-run second inning. Her first at-bat resulted in an RBI-single. She eventually came around to score and then later in the frame, hit a three-run home run to give her team a 13-0 cushion.

In all, the Falcons rapped out 16 hits against the Red Raiders Saturday.

"The thing that gets overlooked is that you can't really talk about Naomi without talking about the team," Iris Stremick stated.

"The team has become very close and supportive and they've kind of caught the belief of what they're capable of. The support of the team isn't reflected by the numbers, but it's infectious and it gives Naomi more confidence to be surrounded by an attitude and culture of ‘team first' and getting to the next batter and just really wanting to focus on the whole rather than the individual. They're playing for something bigger than themselves and it's helped them all to be a lot looser and really have fun and enjoy it together," Iris Stremick said.

The elder Stremick noted that Naomi greatly benefitted from the tutelage of former Kalani standout Maddix Muramoto, now a freshman infielder for the University of Hawaii Rainbow Wahine softball team.

"She really looked up to her and her work ethic and how she would lead by example. Naomi was very fortunate to have that role model in her first year," Iris Stremick said.

While Naomi did her share of pitching as a freshman a year ago, the continued development of junior Kadie Carpio – Stremick's cousin – has allowed her to focus mainly on her duties in centerfield and as the team's second batter in the lineup.

"She still pitches, but being able to put Naomi in center has helped our team become stronger all around," coach Stremick said.

Naomi Stremick has appeared in six games as a pitcher this season and sports a 2.69 earned run average in 13-plus innings of work.

She was an All-OIA Division I East First Team selection last year and also earned All-Hawaii Second Team recognition.

Stremick and the Falcons (8-1) are ranked ninth in this week's ScoringLive Power Rankings. They hold a half-game lead on 10th-ranked Moanalua (7-1) atop the OIA D1 East standings.

Kalani continues league play Thursday against Kaimuki (2-7). First pitch at Kilauea District Park is scheduled for 3 p.m.
