Coach McCorkle said his varsity Bearcats threw strikes in Cairo and the defense made plays behind them.

“I was really pleased the efforts of our pitchers in Cairo,” coach McCorkle said. “Right handers Cayden McQuaig, Lawson Lane, Will Kelley, Russell Wheeler all pitched well in Cairo. Defensively I thought shortstop Keith Lyle, center fielder Tyler Story and catcher Griffin Long all had strong performances.”
