I asked Coach Headley what he had learned about his team tonight. While he was pleased he acknowledged there are some areas he wants to continue to improve. He had this to say, “I thought we played pretty well. I thought Trey had a good outing. I want to get our pitchers to start hitting their spots a little better. Thought we were competitive at the plate. Good start…few things we need to fix but very pleased to get the W.”
The Arrows will travel to Mountainburg on Thursday for a 4:00 non-conference game against the Dragons.
