Baseball teams wrap up regular season schedules

By Daniel Brunty The Winston County Journal

As the season winds down for local high school baseball teams, a few of those will try to position themselves for a postseason berth to continue their season. With only a few games left, many teams will be looking for big division wins to bring them closer to their goal. The Louisville Wildcats were looking for some big division wins when they played a series against Kosciusko that started on Apr. 10. The Wildcats traveled to Kosciusko to face the Whippets in division play. In a game where both teams would be looking to their defense for results, the Whippets held on for a close 1-0 victory. The Wildcats would have a chance to even things when the Whippets came to Louisville on Apr. 13 for another division contest. Looking to get some offense going but could not, the Wildcats found themselves on the losing end of a 13-3 score. Louisville is currently 8-14 overall and 4-6 in division play. The Nanih Waiya Warriors had a busy week, starting with hosting West Lowndes on Apr. 10. The Warriors would go on to easily handle the Panthers 15-1 in their division contest. The Warriors would turn around and host French Camp Academy on Apr. 13 in another division game. In the same fashion, the Warriors would stop the offensive charge of the Panthers and would win 13-1. Up next for the Warriors was a non-division contest against Class 2A East Webster on Apr. 14. The Warriors would give the Wolverines all they could handle, but they could not get the victory as they lost in a close 9-8 decision. The Warriors are looking once again to challenge for another state championship as they continue to dominate in division play. They are currently 15-3 overall and 9-0 in division play. The Noxapater Tigers continued their division schedule at the beginning of the week by hosting Weir on Apr. 10. In a pitcher’s dual, the Tigers would come up short as the Lions edged out a 3-2 victory over Noxapater. The Tigers would then make a road trip to face Sebastopol in a non- division contest on Apr. 12. The Tigers were hoping to end their losing streak against the Bobcats, but could not pull out the victory as Sebastopol took a 7-4 win over Noxapater. The Tigers are currently 3-12 overall and 2-7 in division play. Next week will be a big week for most teams, as they will wrap up any make-up games as well as wrapping up their regular seasons completely. With the start of postseason play on the verge, many fans will be looking to see if their team will continue play.
