Last week was a rough one for the diamond Leopards. Banks County’s baseball team took three on the chin against three very tough region opponents, leaving the Leopards with an 8-8 record entering into the last week of play.
Coach Joe Lord said that he hopes last week motivated the team into doing better this week.
“It's been a long time since we've had a week this rough, but it should make us want to go out the last week and work that much harder,” Lord said. “We're going to keep trying to get better and get back on track.”
This week, Banks has a double header on the road against Union County coming up on Friday.
Game one starts at 5 p.m.
Next Tuesday, April 27, the Banks County diamond Leopards honors the six seniors on the team in a home senior night game against Jefferson.
Game time is set for 5:30 p.m. with the senior recognition before the game.
This past Tuesday, the Leopards were on the road facing North Oconee.
The Titans got a bead on just about everything Banks County pitched, and were able to connect with runners on base to take a 15-2 win over Banks.
Banks couldn’t get started at the plate and the Leopards’ bullpen saw some action as five pitchers tried their hand at slowing the Titans down.
