“Carson was phenomenal. Chase did a good job of keeping it a 1-run game in the 7th. The offense finally came through in the 7th inning. I am so happy for our players and coaches. I am also humbled by the fans that showed up and the kind words that people have shared about this team. This was a special night for our community and school. Ware Shoals fought hard. We stepped up and that will be something that these players will always remember. It was a good night to be a Wolverine!”
