EAGLE WIN 1ST ROUND GAME IN SPRING BREAK BASEBALL TOURNAMENT

Bad weather forecast for Tuesday prompted four teams to begin their run in the Ashley Spring Break Tournament a day early, as Southlake Christian HS took on Laney at 5:30, followed by Dinwiddie, VA against Ashley immediately after.  Each game was started after a moment of silence in memory of Alex Newsome, a 6th grader at Roland Grise who was killed by a line drive during batting practice last Friday.  Laney and Ashley both wore commemorative jerseys with the phrase "Newsome Strong" on the front, and 2 games were completed.  In the first game, Southlake Christian ended up beating Laney by a score of 9-3.  In the nightcap, Donovan Francis tossed 6 innings of 2-hit baseball, picking up the win on the mound by a score of 11-1 via the mercy rule.  Ashley was paced at the plate by numerous players, including Shane Shepard (single, double, RBI),Cully Crott (single, double, 2  RBI), William Noxon (2 singles, 3 RBIs), and Kameron Johnson (2 singles, homerun, 3 RBI), and Dakota Perryman and Drake Overton each added singles.  Ashley advances to the winner's bracket and will play Southlake Christian at 4:30 on Wednesday.  Ashley's record is now 11-5, 6-3 in the conference.
