Coach Brent Landrum: Our bats have cooled off a little but they will heat while we are in Florida. They always do. We competed in every game this weekend. A 2-2 record vs. the competition we faced is very good. This team has the potential to have a great season. As we head to Vero Beach, FL, I am very excited to see what the rest of the season brings. We take a 9-5 record into Florida. That’s quite an accomplishment given the competition we have faced thus far.
