CB Drifters begin 2012 season undefeated

On Monday afternoon, at Monroe Park, the Drifters (4-0) varsity baseball team crushed James Monroe 17-0 to continue their streak of wins. The Drifters blasted 14 hits against the double-A Battlefield District team. Jason Vickery, DezJohn Parker and Josh Thomas each produced multiple hits and a homerun. Kamron Smith contributed to the shutout with a three-run double.
On the mound, Nick Graves got the win, as he struck out eight batters during the course of three innings.

As the season unfolds, the Drifters have solidified youthfulness, hustle, fun, and fundamental baseball.

Excited with his team’s efforts, Drifter head coach Steve Swope said, “These guys show up everyday like it’s Christmas

morning, bright smiles, great attitude, and a willingness to work hard 24-7. When you add the upgrade in talent from what the freshmen have brought to the table, you have a healthy roster of competition and kids who have to work hard for playing time.”

David Allison pitched the first three innings to pick up his first mound victory of the season. The lefthander allowed two earned runs, on three hits with two strikeouts, and four walks. At the plate Allison drove in three runs on two singles, and scored two more runs.
