Staff report
Mike Herndon is in his 13th season as Davie County’s baseball coach, and this could be his year to make some noise, not only in the CPC but in the 4A state playoffs.
The War Eagles are as talented and experienced as they’ve been in a long time.
Early season: A 10-run rule romp against Mooresville was impressive, and Davie won a tough one against a good Mount Pleasant team.
Who’s missing? Key losses were right fielder Zach Long and pitcher Josh Berryhill.
Who’s back? Just about everyone else, including shortstop Carson Herndon (Liberty), catcher Jacob Barber (Liberty), center fielder Alex Newman (Gardner-Webb) and outfielder/pitcher Joe Watson (Catawba). First baseman Connor Bodenhamer also can swing it.
Who’s pitching? Ryan Foster and Corey Randall figure to be horses for the War Eagles.
New name to know: Junior hurler Will Beeson was lights-out against a tough Mount Pleasant lineup.
On deck: East Rowan visits Davie on Saturday afternoon.
That one will tell both teams where they stand.
