The PHS baseball team started off the season with a 2-1 win against Malad on Wednesday, March 14. Both teams got off to a slow start with the Indians finally scoring their two runs in the third inning. Malad made it interesting in the final inning when they scored a run, but Preston was able to shut them down and take home the victory.
Saturday’s double-header was canceled due to flooding at Snake River’s field, but will be rescheduled in April.
“It was more exciting than it should have been, but I was very proud of the boys for their efforts,“ said Coach Brandon Ormond. “Being the first game of the season, we are all trying to find our role in certain situations. This was a good place to start. We had very solid performances from Colton Draney (6 Ks and 1 walk) and Brayden Jorgensen (5 Ks and 1 walk) on the mound as well as Tyson Hall at the plate, who had a big 2-RBI single which proved to be the game winner. Our defense was solid for the most part, but the boys need to be more aggressive at the plate early in the count. I have no doubt that this will come with time and experience.”
Three games are scheduled for this week: Wednesday, March 21, at home vs. Malad (4 p.m.) and Saturday, March 24, at home vs Bear Lake (DH starting at noon).
