Seniors make mark

Both the Wolves and Rebels had seniors turn in two sensational defensive plays.
In the bottom of the second, senior right-fielder Jeffrey Hurt robbed senior leadoff man Daniel Scronce of an extra base hit with a fully-extended catch.
The play prevented an extra-base hit and possibly two runs, as the Rebels had men on first and third. Hurt, who has a Superman tattoo, resembled the super hero making the catch.
West Lincoln’s third baseman senior Heath Cole turned in the other stellar defensive play in the game.
Cole, who is a solid defender, robbed freshman Nate Wright of a double in the top of the sixth. The hard-hit ball was hit behind Cole, who back-handed it with his glove before throwing to first for the out.
“I got lucky. I’m just happy because this is the last time I’ll ever play Lincolnton in anything, unless we play them in the conference tournament,” Cole, the three-sport athlete, said.
Fellow senior, Dustin Hester, was just happy to participate in the game. Last time the two clubs met, he was in Cleveland, Ohio wrestling in a national tournament.
“It feels great to finally be here and be a part of this (beating Lincolnton). When we were playing in the Easter Tournament, I was calling every five minutes to see how my team was doing. That’s when Tater (Daniel Scronce) hit his first homerun, I wish I could’ve seen it,” he said.
