For Northwest Guilford, Robbie McIntosh came on in relief of Ben Saunders in the top of the 6th inning and he faced a bases loaded-no outs situation and McIntosh struck out the EF Eagles in order, 1-2-3…..

Again congratulations to Coach Sonny Gann and his Northwest Guilford Vikings on their Metro 4-A Title.

NWG back in action on Friday night at 7PM at home as the #1 seed from the Metro 4-A Conference versus a Wild Card team.

    Its Sanders KUXHAUSEN (pronounced cooks howzin), and you might as well learn to spell it because you will be hearing a lot about this lone sophomore on the NW varsity team in the coming years. He is a fine young man as well as one heck of a baseball player.

    Congratulations to the NW Vikings!!

    Thank-you so much. What you gave us is exactly what we were looking for. All in all we weren’t too far off and now we know.

    Best of luck to the young Mr. Kuxhausen and the Northwest Guilford Vikings in the playoffs.
