Mercy Baseball Wins a Pair in Chattanooga

March 31st, 2012

The varsity baseball team travelled to Whitwell, Tennessee just north of Chattanooga to play a doubleheader Saturday afternoon, March 31st.  

This small, Tennessee town is in the Sequatchie Valley and is nestled in the foothills of two mountain ranges - it was truly breathtaking and the boys really enjoyed the scenery. They also enjoyed the baseball as they won two hard fought games: a 2-1 victory over Chattanooga School for the Arts and Sciences in Game 1 and 6-5 nailbiter in Game 2 over Whitwell.

Coach Barton of Whitwell, along with the Whitwell fans were great hosts.  The Bobcats parents and players are thankful for their hard work to help make this trip possible.  Their efforts came in the midst of a school tragedy, as they lost a member of their senior class two days prior to the trip.  A BIG thank you to the community of Whitwell - our thoughts and prayers are with them.
