NWG softball is facing the #2 team in the Nation(look for Gracen Stauton to go for NWG), SWR will be tough at NG softball, but NG’s Ashton Lambeth is (12-0)…..NWG has Cole Aker ready and over the past two weeks he has been on a roll…Cole on a roll and Vikings have been able to stay out of the hole…ND very good and Coach Mike Meadows is the State Games assistant coach for Region 5…NG probably looking toward Josh Pike next as they head to Lee County…First road game for NG in the playoffs and the road can be different…Page baseball should have Kevin Westlake up and ready again and this formula of Westlake in the post season has been perfect for Page and Butler comes in as a 10….SEG is a #1 seed and Raleigh Leesville Road has won something like 15 straight games and if SEG goes Steed, that should be what they need to pull of the deed….
Toughest game going in has to be fore NWG softball…Gonna be tough on road for NG baseball and can Page keep the magic coming??? NWG baseball has to like their chances with Aker on the hill and the same for SEG with Steed and the same again for NG softball with Lambeth….
It all comes down to pitching and we look for Staunton, Lambeth, Aker, Pike, Westlake and Steed on Tuesday….
How do we sit after the Tuesday night games??? Does anybody wait and play on Wednesday and stick with the Wednesday/Saturday rotation???
Now with Six, let’s see who sticks…….
