On a night with weather better-suited for duck hunting, the Lamar County Trojans Baseball Team took some much needed heat with them to Macon Co. in the form of their bats, for a Region 5-AA contest with the Macon Co. Bulldogs. Although, the weather was damp, cold and blustery the Trojans’ bats were anything but cold. As a matter of fact, they were red-hot! The Trojans pounded out 14 hits that resulted in 16 runs in a run-rule invoked game that only lasted for five innings.The final score was Lamar Co. 16 – Macon Co. 0. The Trojans were led at the plate and on the mound by Senior Calvin Adams. Adams was 4-4 at the plate, with a three run clout that cleared the centerfield fence. Adams was just as potent on the mound as he allowed no runs, and only gave up one hit in the five innings that he pitched. He also struck out several Macon Co. hitters in going the distance. Other players with multiple hits on the night were senior Blane Parker and juniors T.J. English and Keaton Brown.The Trojans will have to put this one behind them quickly, and get ready for region contests in the upcoming week with Callaway at home on Tuesday, March 17 and go on the road to battle Heard Co. on Friday, March 20. Both of these games will be crucial for establishing an early pecking order in the region standings. The JV was also successful on the front end of the double header as they pounded the Macon Co. JV, 22-0 in just three innings. Eric Cooper was 4-4 at the plate to finish as one of the standouts of the game. The Trojans enjoyed a good following of Lamar Co. fans as they traveled the long distance down to Macon Co. to support the team.Lamar Co. 16-14-1Macon Co. 0-1-3
