Cowboys Even District Record
With a great crowd on hand Friday night , the varsity Cowboys evened their district record at one win and one loss with an 8 to 3 victory over the visiting Jaguars from East Gadsden. The Cowboys overall record now stands at 5 and 3 as they head into the middle part of the season which includes four district games in the next eleven days. Coach Barrs thinks the team is starting to come together as evidenced by a strong pitching performance by Jarrod Burns, timely hitting, and a great save at first base by Heath Carroll. Jarrod Burns picked up the victory pitching six strong innings while allowing only four base runners and striking out eleven.
As a team, the Cowboys notched ten hits and six free passes. Aaron Brown led the way with two hits including a homerun. Heath Carroll contributed with two hits and two RBI’s, and Jake Latner, Zack Money and Jarrod Burns pitched in with doubles. The brightest part of the night might have been the Cowboy batters only striking out three times. The Cowboys take the field next when they travel to Perry Tuesday, March 5th for a 7:00pm contest against the Taylor County Bulldogs.
