Prior to the beginning of the contest, Washington honored its nine seniors - Brooks Brown, Cory Humerickhouse, Austin Ghirardelli, Hunter Thurston, Tony Serrano, Kole Trask, Josh Kirsch, Luke Jones, Andy Garland. This is Myers’ third year as the Hatchets’ head coach and he coached these seniors as a varsity assistant and in club ball.
“Senior Night is a big deal to these guys with all the hard work they have put into the program and it’s an opportunity to honor them,” Myers said. “I’m just glad we got the win, we managed to pull this one out.”
Washington won’t play another game before the sectional game Wednesday against Boonville, a team the Hatchets defeated 5-0 earlier this season. Myers said it’s important for the team to keep their focus between now and then.
“We have to keep working hard — we have to stay in shape,” Myers said. “We had the Jasper game last Thursday and then this one this week so we have to stay in game shape. That’s going to require us to play mini games to keep our legs moving and keep working hard in practice.”
