COACH'S COMMENTS

“... I want to start with the 2008 team that we honored on Thursday. What a special group I can go on for hours talking about that team from Jeff Cyrus to Chandler Shepherd and all of the others. That was a great run to a runner up finish against a great PRP team.


“... Great win for us against Johnson Central they had beaten us a bunch lately and our kids really battled tonight to come out with the victory.”

“... Our kids have been great all year long. We don’t have to do much to get them going and that is a real testament to all of them.”

“... Not much else I can say about Bryce and CJ, they were great again and have been all year. Spring Valley and Rowan Co. are both very good hitting teams and those teams only had six hits combined in 14 innings of play.”
