The Hillsboro Mavericks senior team begin to work out the kinks of the game as they begin to battle back from a 0-5 weekend to start out the season.

Coach Scott Morgan stated “It took some time for the kids to knock off the rust and to get back to playing the game the way they know how after being away from it for some time now.”

Mavericks took losses at the hand of Ohio Naturals, and Jefferson Co on Friday, June 12, Hillsboro fell short to the Troy Bombers and MV Prospects on Saturday in a double header, and Sunday the Greenville Thunder 19U handed the Mavericks there final loss for the Troy tournament.

“Ian Wiles of Eastern High School, Briar Bourne of Lynchburg-Clay, and Luke Magulac of Hillsboro have been big part of the winning efforts for this team in the past weeks.” stated Coach Morgan

Hillsboro started off the week on Tuesday by winning against Portsmouth Post 23 and breaking even with the Chillicothe 757 Colts on Wednesday and Thursday.

The senior team is now 3-5 going into Friday where they will be taking part in double headers at the wooden bat tournament at Richard Shaffer Park on Friday, June 19 and Saturday, June 20.
