Back on the diamond
After a very short hiatus, the Hilltoppers are back on the field, along with most other high school teams, for the summer baseball season.
The Toppers wrapped up the high school season in the quarter finals of state playoffs and graduated out six seniors May 23 so the summer season is a perfect opportunity to begin reshaping the team for next spring.
“We play in the summer to get better, get more innings and at-bats,” said Coach Scott Gann. “I get a good look at who we will be next spring, what our strengths and weaknesses will be, things we need to work on over the fall.”
Gann said restructuring the team after graduation is one of the key points to prepare for the 2014 season.
“The team identity usually shows up during the summer so you already have a good idea as to what and who you will be before you even open up in the fall,” Gann said.
The Toppers began the summer season in tournament at East Union falling to Pontotoc, 7-1, and coming out on the winning side of their game with Booneville, 7-0.
For their first game on the home field, they split a double-header with East Webster winning the first game, 4-0, and falling to the Wolverines, 7-2, in the nightcap.
They will be back in action Thursday at home against Nettleton.
