Trojans Take Sikes Tournament Title

CHHS won their fifth game in three days to capture the 2010 Terry Sikes Memorial Tournament championship at Troy University. The Trojans defeated Northview 8-2. Blake Hutchinson and Harrison Reeves combined to allow only five hits and no earned runs. K.D. Edenfield led off the game with a triple and was driven in by Chance Shaver in the first inning. Henderson's biggest inning came in the fifth when Shaver led off with a hit by pitch and was followed by singles from Nathan Barron and Mitch McLeod. Quay Lawson and Chase Connell both followed with RBI sacrifice flies to give the Trojans the 8-2 lead they would not relinquish. Jalin Lawson finished 2-3 with a triple, RBI, and run scored.

Earlier on Saturday, the Trojans clinched a spot in the championship game by defeating Butler County Magnet 10-0 in five innings. Chance Shaver picked up his first career win on the mound working all five innings and striking out five. Joel Agnew was 1-2 with a double and two RBI. Jawara White added two singles.

On Friday night, CHHS defeated Northridge 8-2 at Hogan's Hole on the campus of CHHS. Mitch McLeod was dominant on the mound working a complete game and striking out twelve Jaguar hitters. The Trojans scoring began in the second with a single by Jalin Lawson and walk by Michael Fox that led to a two RBI double by K.D. Edenfield. Three runs in the third inning and three runs in the fourth inning would prove to be enough to secure the victory. McLeod finished 3-4 at the plate with a double and two runs scored and Qualy Lawson was 1-2 with a double and RBI.

CHHS will be back in action Saturday March 6 at Prattville and will take on Prattville and Stanhope Elmore.
