North Laurel finishes spring break trip with an 8-1 loss

CORBIN — By Les Dixon/ Sports Editor

CHARLESTON, S.C. — North Laurel ended its trip in the Hanahan Classic by dropping an 8-1 decision to West Ashley, S.C.

The seven-run loss dropped the Jaguars to 5-6 on the season while going 1-2 during their spring break trip.

“It was a closer game than the score showed,” North Laurel coach Darren McWhorter said. “They had a kid throwing about 87 miles an hour and his curveball was hitting 80, so it was hard for us to get anything on the ball.

“Our only run came when Marcus reached base with a hit, reached second on a passed ball and scored on a passed ball,” he added. “It was tough out there. That pitcher was really, really good.”

Despite the loss, McWhorter said he was pleased with his team’s effort.

“I thought our pitchers threw well,” he admitted. “It was only a 3-1 game going into the seventh inning and that’s when they scored five runs to put things away. We just ran out of arms and had to bite the bullet. We were trying to keep it respectable, but they scored some runs in the win.

“The thing I really liked is that we battled and competed with them,” McWhorter added. “That was the biggest thing. We never gave up and I’m proud of our guys for that. I thought we performed well at times down here against some very good teams.”
