"I thought that we did some things well this weekend - All of our guys contributed in some capacity this weekend offensively, but Ty Burchett and Bowen Roberts really stood out to me and had great weekends for themselves and our team," said Hart.

"I thought that as a whole, our pitching staff threw it well, in particular, Nolan Hill, Ty Burchett, Cam Davis, and Kyler Stancil."

Hart adds that the team needs to do a better job defensively and do a "better job communicating and play with aggressiveness."

This week's goal is to focus on fundamentals to get ready for Commerce and Franklin County this week.

The Leopards will play Commerce this week, Feb 23, at Commerce High School
