In most ways, it was a typical season opener for the Winder-Barrow High School baseball team Tuesday.
The Diamond Doggs saw some positive things, some things they need to work on and perhaps some glimpses of what the 2012 campaign will be like. In the end, WBHS dropped a 2-1 decision to visiting Stephens County High School leaving Bulldogg coach Brian Smith with at least some level of disappointment.
“Our pitching was definitely a bright spot,” Smith said after the game. “(Blake) Marbut was probably not even at his best despite throwing well. He went out there and got out of some tough situations. We still have to take advantage of opportunities when we have them. This one got away from us. I would like to see us play with more intensity. I always want our team to play like the region championship is on the line. When you do that, you will usually be O.K.when it comes to your effort level.”
