SEASON NOTES FROM COACH JONES
 
WE INCREASED RUNS SCORED BY 43%, HITS BY 30%, EXTRA BASE HITS BY 40 %.  WE DECREASED OUR ERRORS BY 44% AND CUT OUR ERA FROM 4.2 TO 2.58.  WE WENT INTO THE LAST PLAYING DATE WITH A CHANCE TO SHARE THE LEAGUE TITLE.  THAT SURPASSED MOST OF THE GOALS WE SET AT THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR.  WE NEED TO LEARN HOW TO PERFORM WITH CONSISTENCY, ESPECIALLY WHEN THE COMPETITION IS TOUGH.  WE FELL SHORT ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS WHERE A LITTLE BETTER EXECUTION COULD HAVE MADE A BIG DIFFERENCE.  BUT IT WAS A GREAT GROUP OF YOUNG MEN AND A BIG TURN-AROUND FOR THE PROGRAM.
 
SUMMER:
 
WE WILL FIELD 2 TEAMS IN CCSSL (THE HIGH SCHOOL SUMMER LEAGUE), PLAYING 3 GAMES A WEEK UNTIL LATE JULY.  THE OLDER SQUAD WILL INCLUDE VARSITY CANDIDATES FOR 2014; THE YOUNGER SQUAD WILL BE COMPOSED OF INCOMING 9TH GRADERS AND RETURNING JV PLAYERS.

Record Overall (13-11) Conference (9-5)

Caps have 4-1 lead going into the 7th. Can’t hang on and lose 8-4 vs Heritage

The Caps played great for six innings. Kriegsman threw strikes, they played defense and had timely hitting.  In the 7th the bullpen failed to throw strikes and when things started to unravel the Caps lost their composure.  Credit to Heritage for executing when it mattered most.

Coach Jones ” As the fates would have it our competition for the conference title also lost.  So we still control our destiny. We need to execute, even when it doesn’t come easy.”

Leading Hitters:White (3-4 2B, RBI), Collins (1-2, RBI)

Record Overall (12-8) Conference (8-3)
