THS JV baseball closes out season

Thomson's JV baseball team ended its season last Thursday with a 14-3 loss to Lakeside that puts the season record at 10-6. Coach Aaron Hall described the season as "fair."


Labrandon Hudson strokes a two-run homer against Lakeside in the last game of the year.

"Considering we were as young as we were, I was real pleased with it," he said.

The team that consisted of 11 freshmen and four sophomores pulled off wins against Harlem, Cross Creek and Greenbrier during the season.

Coach Hall said the team was solid for the most part, but their inexperience got to them in tight game situations. Several games were lost on one bad inning of defense.

"It always seemed that one inning found us and ate us alive," Coach Hall said. "We would make small mental mistakes, nothing that was really physical, just inexperience."


Drew Usry looks over his shoulder to check a runner at first base.

According to Coach Hall, catcher Aaron McCorkle was a cornerstone of the team. Ryan Heacock, who pitched and played shortstop, along with leadoff batter and center fielder Clay Dent were also key contributors. Coach Hall also said Evan Howard was his most consistent pitcher.

"As a whole I was real proud of them. They did a good job. They fought hard all season, and I look forward to some good things coming out of them in the future," he said.
