"Alexee has been absolutely amazing," said the third-year coach. "She is crushing the ball. She got her sixth home run tonight and leads the team in batting average and doubles.
A scout from North Carolina State University was in attendance looking at Haynes, who is one of many impressive freshmen on the Sissonville team.
"I'm very impressed with the freshmen," Gross said. "We start six of them. It really looks good for our future. These girls have set the tone for the program and we have good things coming to us in the future."
I'm really proud of all the freshman," Baldwin said. "I know the difference between middle school and high school. They have stepped up and did a great job."
While the future looks extremely bright for Sissonville, their main focus is the present, and their next game.
Sissonville lost both regular season games to the second-ranked Huskies but both were by one run decided in the last inning.
"We know they are good team, but we are ready," Gross said. "We are hungry. It's going to be tougher from here on out but we have a lot of confidence, and I believe in these girls. It's going to be a huge game."
"We know who is coming," Haynes said. "We can play with them. I think we have a lot of confidence and we will bring it."
In ending its season, Tori Ward hit a three-run home run to supply the Poca offense in the first game.
