“Our guys are still humble, and are still working hard,” Munroe baseball coach Jayme Williams said after three more wins last week that raised their record to 10-0 for the season.
“We’ve been getting good pitching, good hitting and our fielding is really coming around,” Williams said while talking about his team that defeated Aucilla, Thomasville Brookwood and Franklin County in the week’s work.
“The hard work from last summer and the leadership of seniors Stephen Miller and Myles Edwards have helped build our success; let’s just hope things will keep looking up,” Williams concluded.
Miller and Edwards had a lot to do with the three wins last week. Miller had three hits and Edwards two in the 9-0 win over Aucilla last Tuesday. Casey Mathers and Will Harris also had two hits in the game and Bradley Klees doubled in two runs. This backed Mathers’ three-hit, eight-strikeout pitching performance. The complete game shutout gave Mathers a 3-0 record.
In Friday’s 4-3 nine-inning win over Brookwood, Miller got the win in relief and Edwards scored the winning run on a hit by Johnny Walkup.
Then in Monday’s 12-1 win over Franklin County, Edwards drove in three runs with a first inning bases-loaded triple that helped propel a pitching win for Harris.
Harris also had two hits in the game as did Nolan Haire, who drove in three runs with his hits.
Munroe has only one game this week at Westwood in Camilla Thursday.
During next week’s spring break the Bobcats will play in the P-Town Tournament at Jacksonville Providence. Tuesday they play Good Pasture (Tennessee), Wednesday they play CCA, and Thursday they play Palatka.
