The Indians dropped both games to Blackfoot on Saturday on the road.
“But our team is showing growth,” said coach Brandon Ormond. “We are better now than when we began our season two weeks ago. So I am pleased with that. We lost the first game 6-3 behind a great pitching performance by Jason Wade. It seemed like our defense was trying too hard to do well.
“We were strung so tightly that we popped a couple of times and made a few costly mistakes.”
Ormond said Preston lost the second game 6-0, but had some very positive efforts by Jesse Parker on the mound and Jaden Panter at the plate.
“They are both very good sophomores and were aggressive throughout the game. It’s tough to play league games so early in the season. All we can do now is tune up for Century the first week of April.
“We have four non-league games this week and are looking forward to improving before we see the rest of the district.”
