Comets prepare to play four games in three weeks





Comets strong in scrimmage / March 05, 2018
The Halifax County High School varsity baseball team won a pair of preseason scrimmages Saturday, and the Comet coaching staff hopes to see even more improvement this week.

Halifax opens March 16 at Amherst.

Comet assistant Shawn Torian said Halifax played well in two scrimmage games, with solid pitching, especially considering that this club had not been on the field in preseason warmups.

Torian said all the pitchers threw well, and the Comet offense was relatively strong. The Comets posted an 8-1 win over Northside and an 8-0 win over Heritage. Neither opponent had overwhelming pitching.

Head coach Kenneth Day and the staff will be working on preparing for the season this week. Halifax saw some good pitching from Northside, but Halifax also had multiple contributors on the offensive side.

Halifax should have a strong club this spring, and Torian said the Comets are ready to get back on the field after nearly winning the 5A state title against eventual champion Briar Woods last summer.

BANE HOSPITALIZED: Halifax head softball coach Woody Bane has been hospitalized, and the Comet program will have interim leadership for an undetermined amount of time.

Bane will be replaced by assistants Jennifer Rutledge and Curly Marstin.

The Comets were involved in preseason scrimmage action at Appomattox Saturday.
