Pearl River’s Cole Tolbert and Emily Rigney named Forrest General Wildcats of the Week

Published 12:42 pm Tuesday, April 5, 2022

Tolbert lands the award after a stellar week on the mound for the No. 1 Pearl River baseball team. He began the week by pitching two no-hit innings against Gulf Coast. He struck out four batters against one walk.

The right-hander then made his first start of the season against East Mississippi and turned in a great outing. He pitched 4 1/3 innings, allowing just two hits and one unearned run. He tallied seven strikeouts in the game and walked two batters.

The freshman has been a very reliable arm out of the bullpen for the Wildcats. Through 21 innings pitched, Tolbert holds a 1.71 ERA with 31 strikeouts.
