RLS plans to end 2009 season on ‘high note’

Published 8:21 pm Wednesday, April 8, 2009

With only three games remaining in their season, the Red Level Tigers are looking to get past the 16-6 and 10-0 losses to Excel Tuesday night and finish on a high note.

“We got shelved twice,” Red Level coach Tony Ingram said. “In the first game we were up 3-0 and playing good ball. Then, we made an error here and an error there and that opened the gates.

“In the second game, we were just out of it,” he said. “I think we’ve been down ever since the Flomaton game. We haven’t picked our heads up since.”

The Tigers (8-11, 2-7 in Class 2A, Area 1) lost to Flo-maton March 27 4-0 in 11 innings.

Ingram said right now the focus is ending the season with wins.

“We want to finish this thing on a high note for our senior players and the players playing next year,” Ingram said. “I’m proud of our kids. We’ve got three seniors that have been with me a long time. It’s going to be hard to watch them go.

“I just wish we had sent them out a little better,” he said. “They’ve been a part of good baseball for Red Level. We want to send them out on a high note.”

Red Level will travel to play Florala Friday in a doubleheader starting at 4 p.m.

Then, on Saturday, Red Level will play Opp at 11 a.m.
