JV Dogs cap off year with win over East Jackson
By Greg Sullivan
The JV Diamond Dogs went to Rockdale County Saturday for their season-ending tournament match-up where they defeated East Jackson 10-1 to finish up with an 11-7 record on the year.
The Dogs jumped on top early with a lead-off homer from Drew Stapleton on their way to the 10-1 rout. They also capitalized on a good pitching effort from Wesley Barrett.
JV Dogs Head Coach Josh Reeves said it was good to get the win and that his team put together a good season.
"A lot of our guys did a very good job this year at various positions," Reeves said. "JV baseball is all about preparing players for the varsity level. Some of our guys got called up this year and made a smooth transition to varsity ball. That is the definition of a successful JV season."
The team went into Saturday's win coming off a win last Tuesday, where they beat Alcovy 9-6.
The team was down 5-1 going into the fourth inning when they mounted a comeback, capped off by a Tim Azar double driving home to runs to put the Dogs ahead for good. Azar also picked up the win on the mound.
