DRAGON BASEBALL 2013-2014

 

The Dragon Baseball team will begin off-season conditioning and workouts on August the 19th. The Dragons had a fantastic finish to the season last year coming up just one run shy of making the regional tournament. The Powell Panthers managed a 2-1 victory in the bottom of the 7th to end the dragon’s season. The Dragons went into the tournament as a 7 seed and managed to knock of 2nd seeded Oak Ridge in the first round of the tournament. The Dragons also went on to eliminate 4th seeded Karns and 5th seeded Anderson County. The Dragons finished the season with 14 victories. The team lost 4 seniors last year and will return most of the starting lineup.

 

Returning this year to lead the Dragons will be six seniors:

 

L. Martin (P, SS, 1B)

 

B. Smith (P, 2B)

 

J. Jacobik (DH, 1B)

 

A. Sherwood (P, 3B)

 

C. Viles (OF)

 

P. Abercrombie (OF)

 

Martin, Smith and Sherwood will anchor the pitching staff for the dragons as they will see a ton of innings. Jacobik will be a key bat in the middle of the lineup for the Dragons coming off a season where he hovered around .300 and led the team in doubles and Home Runs. Viles and Abercrombie will be key components defensively in the outfield for the Dragons, and on the base paths, as Abercrombie led the team in stolen bases last season.
