" I was very happy with the first weekend. I think the guys came together pretty quick after only a few workouts and definatly impressed me through the first 4 games of the fall. Our pitching and defense gave us a chance to win every game, and offensivley we looked real strong. Our guys played hard every inning of every game and it showed on the overall outcome of the weekend." said Head Coach Cam Houston
