Hawks baseball starts slow


Five games, four one-sided losses mixed with rays of hope after one close game as Hardin Valley Academy’s varsity baseball program is off and running.

The young, inexperienced Hawks began by losing at District 3-AAA rival West 10-0 Monday, March 9. “Pretty much every player on the team, a little bit shell-shocked,” HVA head coach Kirk Renegar said of his 0-5 team.

A 16-4 home loss to 3-AAA Powell Tuesday, March 12, preceded a 12-1 loss to West at HVA one day later. “Lead-off walks, they’ve been killing us,” Renegar said.

During the rain-shortened AC Athletics Tournament at Anderson County High School Friday, March 13, the Hawks lost twice: 9-1 against Anderson County and 11-8 versus Polk County.

“Graham Rowan, him and Elliot Whitt, those two guys have been the most consistent in the [first] three games as far as working at the plate,” Renegar said.


“I though Joey Covell’s really swung the bat well,” the coach added. “Zach Ahmad had a bit double against Powell.”

Renegar said catcher Stephen Revilla “has absolutely worked his hind-end off, done a great job.”

At ACHS, Renegar noted “big” RBI hits from Jordan Newport and Ryan Russell against Polk, and “nice adjustments” from starting pitcher Nathan Richardson versus Anderson Co.
