Day pleased with work of varsity baseball ... so far

SoVaNow.com / April 18, 2019
Kenneth Day is pleased with the work of Comet varsity baseball so far, but knows there are very formidable obstacles ahead.

Halifax County High School had a successful outing in South Carolina, playing at the Cal Ripken experience in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

“It was a good trip for the kids, getting away from all the distractions and hang out together and play good ball.”

The idea here was to build good chemistry and enjoying playing together in a prestigious neutral site event.

Day was pleased with the win over Briar Woods, calling this a good victory for the program. He said it’s a “good gauge for where we want to be at. They’re one of the top programs.”

Halifax played exceptionally well, and Alex Lowery worked six innings.

Drew Harlow finished up and throttled a Briar Woods rally.

Troy Ferrell had the key blast in the bottom of the sixth, handing Halifax a 4-1 lead. Ferrell’s hit gave the Comets something of a comfort zone.

Briar Woods scored in the top of the seventh and had two players on base. But the game ended on a fly ball out to right field.

Halifax also got a quality win over Whitesboro Sunday and there was other tough competition in the event.

Day said the Comets have a tough slate ahead, followed by the district tournament and then the regionals.

Halifax has to play mistake free baseball and avoid letdowns.
