Whatâ€™s been a difficult season for Newton-Conover on the baseball diamond so far in 2013 got just a little brighter on Monday.
The Red Devils drove in 17 runs on 13 hits en route to stunning top-seeded Bunker Hill 17-4 in the first round of the Catawba County Easter Baseball Classic.
St. Stephens baseball coach Chip Watts likened his teamâ€™s performance in this yearâ€™s Catawba County Easter Baseball Classic to being in the NCAA tournament.
â€śWe talked about March Madness and living for the occasion,â€ť Watts said. â€śBig players make big plays in big ball games.â€ť
The Tribe made big plays when they mattered the most.
Below is a look at Monday's first round scores from the 23rd Catawba County Easter Baseball Classic, as well as Tuesday's slate of games:
