FAYETTEVILLE, Ala. – Tuesday night was a very important game for the Fayetteville Wolves. Not only were they playing their area rival in B. B. Comer, but it was also Senior Night and they could lock up an area championship for first year Head Coach Matt Collier.
That’s just what the Wolves did by scoring early and often. Zeke DeLoach, Brady Butler, Kai Tubbs, Reid Wallis, and Hunter Hammonds all had hits and contributed to an outpouring of runs.
Three pitchers combined for a shutout and the Wolves captured another area title. They will host in the first round of the state playoffs next Friday, April 21.
Six seniors were honored in front of the Wolves faithful. Marlon Cook, Cayden Roland, Cadence Barrett, Zeke DeLoach, Reid Wallis, and Brady Butler have given their all to the program.
Now, they have been rewarded with an area title while getting ready for the playoffs before their Fayetteville career is over.
Then on Wednesday night, it was B. B. Comer’s turn to host Senior Night against the traveling Wolves.
The Cats had a big second inning to take a 5-2 lead. However, they could not keep Fayetteville off of the bases, stopped scoring, and lost big, 17-5.
Even yet, Wednesday night was all about saluting one lone senior for the Tigers. Jai Gaddis will be the only player Comer won’t have next year.
Head Coach Stephen Strickland said, “He has been excellent for us this year while becoming a great teammate. We definitely will miss his play next year.”
Congratulations to Coach Collier and his pack of Wolves for winning the area and hosting in the first round of the 2A State baseball playoffs.
