Taking on the District 9-5A first place Heritage Coyotes Friday at The Nest, the Redhawks baseball team hopes to rebound from Tuesday’s 9-8 loss at Heritage that ended the teams four game winning streak. 

“I think the loss after the 4 game win streak will motivate us to play a lot harder in the next game,” senior, second baseman, Lawson Towne said. “We’ll want to respond with a lot of runs, so I’m predicting a high scoring game on Friday”

One of four schools tied for second place in District 9-5A, a win over the Coyotes would leave the Redhawks just one game out of first place.  

“We shouldn’t change our mindset for any team we play. The goal should always be to attack early and maintain pressure,” junior, outfielder/pitcher Makai Willingham said. “We need to know how to attack and when to be aggressive or conservative, and I think if we can utilize that awareness, we can take down Heritage.”
