Following a short appearance at the Harmony Baseball tournament, the Farmersville baseball team entered this week with hopes of earning more experiences in live competition.
Only able to get three contests under their belt in a month, the Farmers were happy to get back on the field and compete against more teams, traveling to face Van Alstyne before competing in the Grand Saline tournament over the weekend.
Farmersville coach Jon Nordin said he appreciated all the pre-district experience the Farmers were able to participate in this week, helping the team grow as a unit.
“I was really proud of our week,” Nordin said. “We played some good teams and had to play with pressure a lot. We were in situations that you can’t recreate in practice, and that’s why it’s so important that we play as many games as we can. We weren’t perfect, and have some getting better to do, but our guys did a lot of good things. We ended up playing six games in five days, and put 11 different kids on the mound this week. It took everybody.”
The Farmers opened the week March 2, traveling to Van Alstyne to face the Panthers. Facing a similar 4A opponent, Farmersville thrived in both areas of the game, dominating the Panthers en route to a 12-0 victory.
