From the student section: Cox Mill baseball wins first game

Logan Albers is a student at Cox Mill High School and a member of the cross country team. He shares his thoughts on Cox Mill athletics in "From the student section."

The Cox Mill Chargers experienced their first victory on the baseball diamond over Spring Break. Facing the Charlotte Stampede in the South Stanly Tournament, the Chargers rallied from an 8-4 deficit to come back and win, scoring five runs in the bottom of the seventh. Travis Watkins was strong on the mound and also drove in the tying run and scored the winning run for the Chargers. This win not only helps to build confidence, but helps to build Charger pride as the season winds down with eight games remaining.

The Charger track team races at Hickory Ridge on Wednesday, and boys golf winds down their season with three matches to go.

Tuesday’s boys' golf match at Green Oaks golf course proved a struggle for the team as they placed sixth, but they look to rebound in the upcoming meet at Skybrook Golf Course and the South Piedmont Conference championship the end of April. The team was led by Brandon Cordell, Eric Boumann, Garrett Ray, and Austin Albers.
