Coming into the season there were knowns and unknowns for the four teams on the diamond across Dickson County.
Creek Wood softball would have all the pieces needed to be a great and powerful contender, they are 1-3.
Dickson County softball has the bats but just needed to bolster their pitching, due to losses at the position.
They are 1-4-1 on the year and outside of the opening matchup with Creek Wood runs have been just as big an issue.
Dickson County baseball would be young, but talented.
They have lived up to their billing with a 4-4 record and a lot of close games, wins, and losses.
Creek Wood baseball is only 2-0 at the moment but might be the biggest surprise so far.
Having to replace names like Brandon Porter, Bailey Deason, Noah Christenson, and former district player of the year Kaden Miner, would be no small task.
In two games, they have not missed a beat.
Tate Hinson, Aaron McCoy, Andrew Bruce, and Jacob Stephenson have shown the ability to be the next man up.
Growth will be paramount for each of these teams going forward.
All four have the personnel and ability to take big steps throughout the season and find themselves deep in the postseason.
However, a quote from Head Coach Bert Newberry, that the other head coaches I am sure would agree with is this, “We better grow or it’s gonna be a loooooooooooooong season.”
