  • Hawk baseball has a bright future

     Leading into the 2014 baseball campaign, Hawks’ second-year head coach Eric Allen knew he would have a challenge replacing six seniors with a young group of players coming up. This was nothing new. When he acquired the job in 2013, he had to replace eight seniors.

    Junior Koy Lindsey and freshman Cameron Dawson were the only full-time starters from the 2013 squad, while sophomore Colby Skaggs and senior Dylon Hedgespeth also saw action at the varsity level.

    Lady Hawks coach Aaron Howell called on senior Brigitte Skaggs to close it out.

    Green County drew two bases-loaded walks off Skaggs to rally for an 8-7 win at Green County American Legion Park.
