    Senior, Brayden Hurley, was also a big help to the team coming up to bat and hitting a double bringing in a run for the Warriors. Throughout the game, Hurley had three runs batted in and overall went two for three. Seniors, Jared Hancock and Chris Sanders, both had big contributions to the Warriors win, with two runs batted in each.

    Junior, Malik Miles, took a few hits for the team. Miles was walked every at bat after being hit by the ball. This may have put him in pain for a few minutes but the team knew Miles was tough. Taking these hits for the team put Miles on base, giving the Warriors’ runners in scoring position.

    The Warriors dominated from the start of the game and completed the game with no errors. Coach, Paul Becker, was very pleased with the performance of his team and believes that this is a great start to their season.

    “It felt good to win and gave a spark to the team, it was a really good way to start off the season,” said Shawn Taylor.

    The boys baseball team knows that even though they have started off with a big win, they cannot ease up and take things lightly. They have to continue to work hard at practice and even harder during each game.

    The Warriors will take on Snow Hill on Thursday and plan to start and finish the game with lots of intensity.
