Re: Matt In Char Nc
The freshman team is 6-1 and looks to be very talented. They scrimmaged the JV team and beat them before the season got started. The Varsity team is senior dominated and has been a little disappointing so far. (13 seniors) Matt is 2-0 and has both conference wins for the freshman team, beating Westfield and Lafayette Jefferson. They lost to Carmel's JV, 9-4, on a rainy Saturday in the first game of a DH in which the coach didn't start his regular lineup. We still haven't figured that one out. The second game was rained out, and was to be against their freshmen. Lots of opportunity for varsity next season with all the seniors leaving.
The umpiring has been OK. Pleased with that so far. Supposed to be playing at Lebanon tonight if the rain holds off. Matt will pitch again on Saturday in the Brownsburg Invitational. They have a 3 man starting rotation that they have stuck to so far.
Talent is God Given: be humble.
Fame is man given: be thankful.
Conceit is self given: be careful.
