"Great start to the CMAC with a road sweep of a quality (ranked in Division 3) opponent. Our pitchers threw extremely well, and we need to clean a few things up defensively, but our lineup depth and versatility was on display again. We need to finish up Potterville tomorrow night, and then gear up for a huge showdown with PW next Monday." Said Coach Bryan Scheurer
