The Grimsley Whirlies baseball team got their season off to a smashing start on Tuesday afternoon with an 11-2 victory over Southwestern Randolph.
Alan Ashkinazy’s squad jumped on SWR early and the Cougars found themselves down 6-0 after only three complete innings.
Clint Moore got the start on the mound for GHS and he pitched well going five innings and getting the win.Â Moore is close to signing a scholarship offer from Army and could be on his way to West Point after his senior season with the Whirlies.Â Sounds like a great deal, getting a full ride and playing baseball on the Banks of the Hudson.
Everyone played well for the Whirlies and Alan Craven, the GHS center fielder, got things rolling as the lead-off batter and thenÂ it was all Whirlies on Tuesday afternoon.Â Greg Henry, Ken Daly, and Andrew Faircloth all came up with some big hits and drove in the key RBI’s.Â Moore helped his own cause by going 1-3 and driving in a coupleÂ of runs.Â Lucas Wrenn did a solid jobÂ on the mound in reliefÂ of ClintÂ Moore and their catcher Gabe, the young sophomore had another strong day behind the plate.Â
GHS is 1-0 to start the 2007 campaign and will be backÂ home next Tuesday to take on the Glenn Bobcats at 7pm.Â
