Offense eludes Cougars

-A A +A

The only thing drearier than the weather last week was Campbell County’s offense, which was outscored 38-1 in consecutive varsity baseball losses to Halls, Clinton and Knoxville Catholic.

Senior shortstop Blake Potter scored the only run for the Cougars when he drove in Brandon Kindred with a sacrifice fly in the third inning of a 9-1 loss to Clinton last Wednesday (March 11).

Kindred and Andrew Dykes each went 2-for-3 in that game to account for Campbell County’s four base hits.

The previous afternoon, Campbell County was blanked 18-0 by Halls. The Cougars also had four hits in that game scattered among four different players: Lance Webber, Trammel Marlow, Dykes and Joe Goins.

Campbell County played one game of the adidas Classic before the tournament was canceled because of rain.

In their only tournament game, the Cougars fell 11-0 to Knoxville Catholic.

Donnie Huddleston had the only hit for Campbell County, now 0-4 on the season.
