The Rockbridge County Wildcats collected their first win this season in a blowout 18-3 road victory against Parry McCluer (PM) April 1.

The ‘Cats started hot and never cooled down. They had four runs in the first inning alone, credit to Thomas Armstrong, Eli Sorrells, and Brady Majors. They kept on rolling with another two runs in the second inning from Nolan Stines and Armstrong, an additional run in the third inning thanks to Zac Majors, and a staggering six runs in the sixth inning from Clay Irvine, Bradi Ziegler, Rocky Perlozzo, and Armstrong.

Armstrong and Zielger had particularly strong performances with three hits at bat for each. Likewise, Brady Majors stood out with three runs for the ‘Cats. 

While the Wildcats’ offense was on fire, their defense also held tight only allowing three runs from PM.

Senior catcher Thomas Armstrong gave his thoughts on the game. 

“We played well as a team, [stayed] very focused, and really just got on a roll,” said Armstrong.

The ‘Cats record is now 2-5 after a late stage comeback against Alleghany April 11. They play away at Turner Ashby April 12.
