Can the Hagerstown Community College Hawks do a repeat of getting to the NJCAA Division I World Series as it did last year?
Right now the Hawks are 32-12 after Tuesday’s 4-1 win over Chesapeake and are in the top spot in the region with a 6-1 record. HCC currently is in the top-seeded position in Region XX and they can stay there for good if they can take care of business on Thursday with a critical game at Garrett.
I just talked to coach Scott Jennings and we were talking about tiebreakers if the Hawks end up tied with Potomac State. Heck, just go out and win Thursday and take care of everything. Potomac State is done with its region games and is 6-2.
Jennings said he’s pretty happy where his team is at right now.
The Hawks are led offensively by infielders Daniel Heatwole, hitting .421, and Matt Greene, hitting .415. Greene was one of the team leaders last season. Also, a surprise for the Hawks this year has been the pitching of Garrett Harrison, who pitched into the ninth inning against Chesapeake to record his fourth win in six decisions.
HCC has experienced players to remain successful in its postseason run. In five of the last six years HCC has had to get past Potomac State and it’s likely that scenario won’t change this season.
It will start to get very interesting for the Hawks soon.
