Corbin turns in good showing; now ready for district play


By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

Rob Ledington’s Corbin Redhounds held their own during the Seahawk Invitational in Hilton head, S.C. The Redhounds (6-4) posted a 1-2 mark against some tough competition.

“All in all, I thought the trip went well,” Ledington said. “I thought we played well. We played some very good teams and we knew what we were going up against when we came here.

“We had timely hits and received good pitching,” he added. “Coming down here, we know playing these type of games will prepare us for what’s coming up down the road.”

The Redhounds dropped a 7-0 decision to Hilton Head, S.C., but followed that with a 6-5 win over Walhalla, S.C., before losing to Richmond, N.C., 11-2.

“We’re still a work in progress,” Ledington said. “We are still trying to figure out some things, but the effort is there.

“I’m really happy with this team,” he added. “We’ve only played two really bad games this year. We didn’t play well against Clay County and we didn’t play well in our last game (against Richmond County, S.C.), but overall, I’m happy with what we have done. Things are going pretty good right now and we’ve had some players step up. Derek Terry has hit the ball well and played good defensively. Kevin Goins and Chad Brown have done a good job, too.”

Corbin begins 50th District play today at home against Whitley County and will play the Colonels again Tuesday on the road.
