Polk baseball dominates Madison 15-0 in conference opener
Published 6:47 pm Thursday, March 14, 2013
After a couple of scrimmage and non-conference games Polk County faced their first conference opponent in Madison at home March 12.
It was a cold, windy Tuesday night but in the pre-game interview Coach Ty Stott expressed his confidence in an inexperienced team with great potential and promise.
“We are real young; we have one freshman and six sophomores. (But) It looks like we will have some very fine pitching,” Stott said. “As usual early in the season, we are not hitting, but I think it will come around and we will be a better hitting team than last year.”
In terms of the pitching rotation, Stott said he feels confident with a selection of talent.
“We will be a deeper pitching team this year,” he said. “I think Alec Philpott, Dylan Turner and Daniel Painter will be our top three. There won’t be a game that we will go into without a chance to win with those three.”
Coach Stott also likes his team’s speed on the bases.”
