ACCS trying to improve at the plate

Published 3:50 pm Monday, April 9, 2007

With a double header at Jackson Prep looming against Jackson Prep for Tuesday, a home showdown against Centreville on Friday and a round robin showdown with Trinity and Bowling Green on Saturday, Adams County Christian School is trying to improve at the plate.

“We had pretty good pitching this week, we played good defensively, but we didn’t hit the ball well,” Rebels head coach Ron Rushing said.

The Rebels have been lacking consistency at the plate all season.

“It comes and goes from game to game,” he said.

Rushing said he feels that focus, in part, has something to do at the lack of performance at the plate.

“We need to do a better job mentally when we get ready to hit,” he said. “That probably has something to do with it.”

Beginning April 17, the Rebels will face their last district opponent in a three game series. It will be the first time for ACCS, who is third in the district with a 5-4 record and is 11-11 overall, to face second place Franklin County.

“It’s all going to come down to that series,” Rushing said.

The Rebels must win two out of three games in the series to take over the second place in the district, and advance to the playoffs. Porters Chapel currently holds the district’s top position.
