After a disappointing two game stretch during Spring break, the Cowboy varsity baseball team is back at their winning ways. The team traveled to Quitman Monday for a contest against the Brooks County Trojans and came home with a decisive 15 to 1 victory. As a team, the Cowboys had fifteen hits, seven free passes and fourteen RBI’s. With the win, their season record now stands at 13 wins against 6 losses, with a district record of 4 wins and 2 losses. Zack Money picked up his third win of the season pitching 3 innings and Jarrod Burns got the final 6 outs of the game including five K’s.
On the night, Heath Carroll, Jake Latner and Zack Money led the way each going 3 for 4 at the plate including 2 doubles and 4 RBI’s for Heath, 3 RBI’s for Jake and a triple and an RBI for Zack. Also contributing were Patrick Bowen (2 for 3), Adam Odiorne (2 for 2 & 2 RBI’s), DJ McKnight (1 for 3 with a HR & 2 RBI’s) and Aaron Brown (1 for 4). News also came Monday that the Cowboys have moved into the top eight in the Big Bend area rankings as voted by Next level baseball.
The Cowboys now start a 7 game home stretch to finish out the regular season beginning Thursday, April 5th against the Lafayette Hornets at 7:00pm.
