“We got a good disciplined win in the first game over a good baseball team” said head coach Travis Henson “in the second game we just walked to many batters to win the game. It was a frustrating to say the least and we had our chances to win but I’m proud of how the team played in the first game.”
The series split puts the Crusaders at 4-2 on the season with a three game series  coming up at Southern Wesleyan on the 19th. Anderson will come to North Greenville to take on the Crusaders on February 24th.
