COLBERT - The Leopards’ 5-0 baseball start could get them into the perfect 10.
A 14-0 shellacking of Stonewall on Monday keeps Colbert perfect on the baseball season - for now. They head into this weekend’s tournament in Tupelo with a Thursday matchup against a potent Soper team.
Still, Coach Lance Britt has high hopes that the early season rankings will favor the Leopards. Five wins in four days should go a long way toward getting them into the state’s fall baseball elite.
Kason Krob earned his second win Monday with four innings of impressive mound work, including four strikeouts and only three hits.
“He had good command all day long, and we definitely played well behind him,” Britt said. “He’s making quality pitches, able to hit his spots and change speeds. It was a good team effort.”
The aluminum was popping Monday as the Colbert bats went to work. Six of nine Leopards scored twice, and they put together an 11-run first inning on 16 at-bats.
Caleb Shoemake was 2-for-3 scoring three times; Dakota Graham came up big with three RBIs and a double on 2-2 batting; James Hair, Bradley Nichols, and Dylan Jones all had singles in the win.
