April 16 2014: High School Wrap Up
Chapel Hill jumped all over Haralson Wednesday evening, clinching a spot in the 2014 GHSA AAA State Playoffs. The Panthers scored four runs in the third, one in the fourth and seven in the fifth for a 12-0 win.
Brandon Sattenfield was lights out on the mound. He allowed only two hits and four walks in five innings of work. He struck out five.
Triston Leggett led the offense, going 2-for-4 with a double and a fifth inning grand slam. With Chapel Hill up 8-0 in the fifth and the bases loaded, Leggett, who normally is the type of hitter to spray the ball around to all fields, had the opportunity to step up to the plate and literally swing for the fence. Leggett connected on a pitch and sent the ball on a line, over the left-center field wall.
“I did not think it would get out, it was hit so low,” said CHHS coach Mick Harper. “He puts a lot of work in that a lot of people don’t see and made solid contact every time he went up to the plate.”
Leggett finished the game with five RBI’s and two runs.
Jason Rodriquez, Brandon Peterson and Jason Winslett also walked away from the game with two hits apiece. Rodriquez went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI’s and two runs. Peterson went 2-for-3 with an RBI and two runs. Winslett added two doubles and one RBI.
Harper expressed great relief after the game.
“Coming back from spring break and not having great weather to practice in, and knowing we had to win at least one of two games on the road this week to secure a spot in the playoffs was stressful,” Harper said. “There were a lot of unknowns and we have not hit particularly well this season and we were playing without MJ Rookard, but we were able to secure a spot.”
