Sluggers break slump

By:  Baylee VanKirk

   After getting off to a steaming hot start going 7-3 in their first ten games, the baseball team has since cooled off.  The record now is 8-9 while playing some stiff competition.  While facing Cabell Midland, they had a five-run lead going into the last inning. The Vikings ended up losing 9-7.

   In this stretch they have played 3 teams in the top ten in the state including Cabell Midland, George Washington, and Fairmont Senior.  While keeping close in all games, they just can’t seem to pull it off in the end.

   “That was definitely the toughest part of our schedule,” said junior Easton Berry.

   After losing six straight games they ended that streak on March 16, beating Shady Springs 10-0.

   “It felt really good to win again,” said Sophomore Chris Jordan, “I was getting really tired of losing.”

   With only 10 games left in the regular season, the team hopes to use this win as a momentum-gainer.

   Freshman Anthony Jarvis is hopeful for the rest of the season.

   “If we can come together and play as a team, I really do think that we could make a run into states,” said Jarvis
