Tribe Drops Opener at Rivercrest
Delayed by a winter storm and wet conditions, the Piggott Mohawk baseball team finally had the chance to kick-off the 2015 campaign Monday at Rivercrest. The Tribe made the trip to Wilson for their contest with the Colts, and dropped a 16-0 decision in five innings.
The contest marked the first under new head coach David Reynolds, who took over the program during the offseason. He inherits a very young and inexperienced squad, and this season looks to be a rebuilding year for the program. Returning as assistant coach is former Cougar Alan Rabjohn.
Freshman Quinten Reeves had the most productive day at the plate of any of the Mohawks, going 2 for 2 on the game. On the defensive side another freshman posted a good performance as Spencer Hardin came on in relief and pitched one inning, striking out two in the process.
The Tribe is scheduled to return to conference action on Monday, March 30, as they're slated to travel to Osceola for a double-header with the Seminole. The following day, Tuesday, March 31, they're scheduled to begin the home portion of the schedule as the Corning Bobcats visit Independence Park. Next Thursday, April 2, they're scheduled to participate in the annual Duel on the Diamond tournament at Paragould.
