Pinecrest Slips Past Leesville into Third Round

NCHSAA 4A Playoffs - Second Round: Pinecrest 2, Leesville Road 1 (8 innings)

– Pinecrest claimed a dramatic 2-1 extra-inning win over Leesville Road Friday in a second-round state 4-A playoff game held in Holly Springs.

Playing at Salamander Stadium, the Patriots’ Nik Pry raced home from first base on a bunt in the top of the eighth to provide the winning run.

Pry, who had reached on a walk, scored when Dax Ingram laid down a bunt that the Pride’s pitcher Jared Leins fielded and threw over the first baseman’s head into right field.

Ingram, who came on in relief of Pry in the bottom of the seventh, would get the win after the Pride went down in the bottom of the eighth. READ MORE.

Patriots Blast Scots for SEC Tourney Title

SEC Tournament - Championship: Pinecrest 11, Scotland County 1 (6 innings)

– Pinecrest made it two in a row Friday.

With a convincing 11-1 win over Scotland County in the finals of the Southeastern Conference baseball tournament, the Patriots picked up their second consecutive league tournament title.

“Back-to-back years shows where this program is and the hard work the kids have done,” said Patriot veteran head coach Jeff Hewitt. “This started back in the summer, rolls through the fall, the work we did in the weight room. We’re playing for every thing we’ve done to this point.”

And the Patriots are playing really well as they wait to find out who they face in the upcoming NCHSAA state 4-A playoffs. The pairings were announced Saturday, but were not available by press time. The Patriots are almost guaranteed a home game. Hewitt indicated that he thought the game would be played on Tuesday. READ MORE.
