Hornets close out regular season with 11-1 win over Camden Fairview
With two conference starters and a closer sporting earned run averages under 1.00, there haven’t been too many varsity innings lately for the Bryant Hornets bevy of talented young arms. That’s been especially so since the Hornets got into the heart of the 7A/6A-South Conference schedule. They’ve not faced a non-conference foe since taking on Monticello on March 25.
But, on a chilly, damp Saturday afternoon, the Hornets closed out the regular season with a game against the Camden Fairview Cardinals and sophomore right-hander Blaine Knight got the call.
And he came through with 5 1/3 innings in which he allowed just one run on four hits with a walk and eight strikeouts. Junior Devin Dupree closed out the sixth and the Hornets put together a six-run uprising in the bottom of the inning to complete an 11-1 run-rule win that was highlighted by senior Marcus Wilson’s 4-for-4 performance at the plate.
