Here’s the run of Tuesday’s results in Baseball and softball in Pearl River County
Poplarville is 6-4 this season as they enter district play on Tuesday, March 14, and Friday, March 17th against a good 8-3 Columbia Wildcats team. Head Coach Slade Jones is still ironing out his young team while searching for a core group of players. The Hornets go 10-11 players deep. With two 8th graders, two freshmen, three sophomores with 2 juniors, and a few seniors, Coach Jones says they’re inexperienced and trying to grow as the season goes on.
“Hopefully we’ll see some, in-season maturity, both mentally and physically to get us to where we can go and compete,” Coach Jones stated.
In this double header, Coach Jones want to see two or three of his players step up to the mound, and strike players out.
The Picayune Maroon Tide is 6-7 this season after dropping back-to-back games at home. They lost to Vancleave, 3-1 on Friday, and to St. Stanislaus, 9-4 on Saturday. The Maroon Tide will try to bounce back this Tuesday as they travel to play the East Central Hornets (7-5) at 7 p.m.
