Tolsia Head Coach Robbie Conn
“… Big victory for us Monday night over Section rival Tug Valley. Big home run from Cameron Perkins and solid pitching all around. Good road victory last night over Elliott Co. we got to see a lot of different players get in and that was good for us. Thought Jeremy Vanhoose and Brian Ekers did a good job.”
“… Last week we lost a tough one at Van in the late innings and then we really battled against a very good Man team the next night.”
“… Really proud of our guys so far. We are learning a lot about each other and that is encouraging to see. We have an older team but not a lot of experience.”
