It may not feel like spring yet, but to the Banks County Diamond Leopards it is close enough.
The Leopards’ season is off on the right track as Banks won its preseason game 14-3 over Johnson last Friday. Monday, Banks was on the road for the first official game of the season, taking on the Franklin County Lions. The AAA Lions were not much of a threat as the Leopards took an 8-1 victory.
Joe Lord returns to coach the Leopards this season and will be looking to build off the success of last year.
