CHHS clobbers Greenville

Greenville’s baseball season came to an abrupt end last Friday night in Troy.

The Tigers made the trip for the first round of the playoffs, but the Trojans topped the Tigers 9-1 and 16-0.

Greenville head coach Brad Horn said that Trojans are a better team than their record indicates.

“They were better than they might have been last year,” Horn said.

The Tigers’ run in the first game came after Stewart Moody got a base hit and Josh Ray drove Moody in.

Horn gave credit to Troy’s pitching staff for both games.

“In the first game, they threw a left-hander that we just couldn’t hit,” he said. “In the second game against them, we had too many errors.”

One bright spot for the Tigers is that there are no seniors on the team, so this year has given the younger players game experience.

“It’s been a tough year at times, but we’ve got a lot of players coming back,” Horn said.

The Tigers end the season with a 16-13 record.
