By the end of the championship game Saturday, the Warriors – with nine of its players coming from southwestern Wake – proved their coach right with a 6-5 win over tradition-rich Fuquay-Varina in the final.
“We’ve got a bunch of juniors and others who have played with each other for a couple of years, and we knew we could come in and play with the higher level schools. And we don’t get that chance as much,” Harvey said. “We’re thankful for the Murray family inviting us. It told (the Warriors), ‘You belong here,’ and we went out and got the job done.”
The Warriors (10-3) opened the tournament with a 6-4 win over a young Heritage team and followed with a 5-1 win over Millbrook. Jake Ennis, the tournament MVP, pitched the opening win and Jon Rosoff was on the mound in the win over Millbrook. William Cunningham got the start against the Bengals, with Jamey Meeker finishing and getting the win.
