SEASON NOTES FROM COACH JONES:
WE INCREASED RUNS SCORED BY 43%, HITS BY 30%, EXTRA BASE HITS BY 40 %. WE DECREASED OUR ERRORS BY 44% AND CUT OUR ERA FROM 4.2 TO 2.58. WE WENT INTO THE LAST PLAYING DATE WITH A CHANCE TO SHARE THE LEAGUE TITLE. THAT SURPASSED MOST OF THE GOALS WE SET AT THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR. WE NEED TO LEARN HOW TO PERFORM WITH CONSISTENCY, ESPECIALLY WHEN THE COMPETITION IS TOUGH. WE FELL SHORT ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS WHERE A LITTLE BETTER EXECUTION COULD HAVE MADE A BIG DIFFERENCE. BUT IT WAS A GREAT GROUP OF YOUNG MEN AND A BIG TURN-AROUND FOR THE PROGRAM.

SUMMER:
WE WILL FIELD 2 TEAMS IN CCSSL (THE HIGH SCHOOL SUMMER LEAGUE), PLAYING 3 GAMES A WEEK UNTIL LATE JULY. THE OLDER SQUAD WILL INCLUDE VARSITY CANDIDATES FOR 2014; THE YOUNGER SQUAD WILL BE COMPOSED OF INCOMING 9TH GRADERS AND RETURNING JV PLAYERS.
