Baseball hits the road Tuesday as they face District 10-5A rival Lebanon Trail at 7:30 p.m., looking to continue their 4-game winning streak and improve their district record to 3-0.

“Mentally, the boys feel great. They’re a young set of guys, but they’re starting to figure out their game, starting to compete a little harder, and just feel well prepared for any opponent they have to face,” head coach Scott McGarrh said. “We’ve scouted and practiced for Lebanon Trail, and the boys have a good foundation of what Lebanon might do, so they’ll be able to adapt when it comes to game time.”

Senior Knox Mercer is looking forward to facing a district rival and is ready to adjust to what Lebanon may throw at them.

“We have an idea of what they might try to enforce, but the entire game relies on what we see in the first few innings, and how we change to put the game in our favor,” Mercer said. “Whether it’s how we play defensively, how our pitchers are going to approach the rest of the game, or if we want to be pushing once we’re on the offense.”
