Hillwood Travels to Florida for Tourney

The Hillwood High School boys varsity baseball team, who traveled to Florida this week to play in an invitational tournament, struggled at the plate and dropped four games.

“It was an exceptional learning experience against some very good teams,” coach Randy Harrell said. “It was a great trip for out team.”

The best game of the trip came against the Seminals, who had just beat the Number 1 team in the country IMG the week before.

Senior Rolly Hunt continued to pitch well, giving up one run in a 2-1 loss to Seminal.

He then threw five innings in a 5-0 loss to Gainesville.  Hunt allowed two runs on four hits, walked none and struck out three.

Senior Dustin Hoard smashed a double for Hillwood, while junior Trevon Wade and senior Connor Robinson went 1-2.  Junior Patrick Coyle went 1-3 for the Hilltoppers.

Coyle continued his hot hitting against the Atlantic Sharks, going 2-2 in a 16-0 loss.

Against the Highland Hawks, Hunt got the only hit for Hillwood, as the team suffered a 8-0 shutout loss.
