The Apalachee High School baseball team may have just turned the corner this spring. At least, coach Mike Cavey and his Diamond Cats hope so.
A 4-3 road win against North Forsyth Saturday showed Cavey that his team is capable of being victorous, even when faced with adversity. The coach said he hopes being able to win that type of game will help his team’s mental approach as they prepare to enter the subregion battles for 2012.
“It feels good to be on the positive side,” Cavey said. “It gives us some needed confidence. In Saturday’s game, we let a 2-0 lead get away, but we came back. We’ve been pitching well and our defense has stepped up. We are making the routine plays. Our pitchers are also gaining more confidence in our defense to make the plays behind them.”
