The Alice Lloyd Eagles baseball team will open the 2015 campaign on February 6, when they travel south to face the Tennessee Temple Crusaders.
Coach Scott Cornett is hoping this year’s squad can build on the successful finish they had in last season’s KIAC Tournament. In that postseason playoff, the Eagles upset both Berea and Asbury to advance to the Semi-Final round. They eventually succumbed to powerful Indiana University- Southeast, but not until taking them down to the wire before dropping a last-at-bat heartbreaker, 9-8.
On the field, the coaching staff will rely heavily on seniors Trae Minton and Kevin Smith to provide valuable leadership, while fellow seniors Jake Bales, Ryan Burrow, Ian Delaney, Jordan Horn, and Greg Wright should bring a vast wealth of experience.
The opening game will take place Friday in Cleveland, Tennessee, with the first pitch slated for 2pm. The same two clubs will return to the diamond for a Saturday double-header. The first pitch is scheduled for high noon.
