I Spoke Too Soon

Posted by Scott Holstad on April 2, 2012

I blogged just two posts ago about my beloved Farragut Admirals baseball team being ranked #6 in the nation and trying to grab their 5th straight state championship. Then, this past week, they played in the Blackman Invitational and got drilled in multiple games. So disappointing! Now we’ll drop out of the rankings, that’s for sure. May never be able to work our way up again, no matter how good the season goes. Really, a lost opportunity. Of course, we can still win our 8th state championship of the past 10 years, but our ace pitcher is injured and out for the year now, another one is on the 15 day DL, and we’ve got a bunch of freshman filling in. Disappointing….

My high school alma mater, Knoxville’s Farragut, is off to another great start to their baseball season. They’re currently ranked sixth in the country by MaxPreps. They’re going after their fifth straight state championships, and eighth of the last 10 years. Go Admirals! (BTW, I think we’re something like 12-0 now….)

6.  Farragut Knoxville, Tenn., 5-0

The Admirals opened the season last week with five straight wins, including a pair of shutouts. Farragut clobbered Lenoir City 19-0 in the opener and then edged Heritage 5-2. It followed with an 8-0 win over Soddy Daisy, a 7-4 win over Father Ryan and a 7-4 win over Station Camp at the Scenic City Classic. Cameron Strickland, Nick Senzel and David Logan all hit home runs against Lenoir City. A.J. Simcox added a homer against Heritage. Simcox also went 4-for-4 against Father Ryan.
