Thanks to Tony Sutphin we have news on the GTCC Titans and their baseball team headed up by coach John Barrow.
Here’s Tony’s report from Saturday afternoon:
GTCC is on their way to Sweeping Doubleheader over Salem Community College at Ragsdale High School
GTCC won the opener 11-2 with Brad Ison (Eastern Randolph) picking the win (the first of the season for GTCC). Offense was led by Chad Hockaday (SW Guilford) 2-3, John “Diesel” Neese (NW Guilford) went yard, shortstop Brandon McKinney (NW Guilford) also had a big two rbi single. It was also great to see Burlington Williams grad and past GBC Prepstar Jordan Covington go 1-1 in the opener.
In game 2 – Joe Haumacher is in line to get the win, as GTCC was up 10-0 in the fourth. Leadoff hitter Chris Dameron (S. Alamance) led off both games with doubles – nice starts, and he added a bomb to center in game 2. John Neese added another single in game 2. Brandon Dhue (Toronto) had a big 2 run single in GTCC’s 6 run first inning. Brian Ivan (Toronto) hit a line drive off the middle of the scoreboard at Ragsdale that the wonderful umpires ruled a double, and then he added another real double down the lf line. Catcher Brent Young added to the offense with a double to RC. Secondbaseman – Jonathan Fernandez (Ft Lauderdale) dropped a deep bomb to rf and added a double to LC – I know coach Barrow loved the way the ball jumps off this kids bat.
Great to see GTCC get their first two wins of the year and there was a big crowd out on a nice day!! GTCC plays two more tomorrow(Sunday) at Ragsdale!!
*****Thanks to Tony and we look forward to more of his reports.*****
