Middle Creek baseball downs Apex, stays unbeaten in Tri-Nine
March 28, 2012Tri-Nine Conference
APEX - Middle Creek baseball coach Jeremy Thompson can only shake his head when trying to come up with reasons why this year’s team has picked up where last year’s left off.
The Mustangs had almost complete turnover from last year’s team, which won its final 11 regular-season games to clinch the final playoff berth from the Tri-Nine Conference.
“It is pretty amazing that we’ve pretty much got a new starter at first, second, short, third, behind the plate – everybody’s new. We’ve got our right fielder back, basically, and that was it,” said Thompson. “We’ve been real proud of the guys. Half of this success was built last year by the guys and their good preparation, even when they weren’t playing.”
After a 5-0 win Tuesday night at Apex, Middle Creek moved to 9-2 overall and 7-0 in the Tri-Nine. That makes the Mustangs winners of their past 12 conference games and 20-3 over their past 23 contests dating to last year’s run.
