With a run of bad luck, the Escambia Academy Cougars are hoping to start fresh from this point of their season on and push for a berth in the playoffs.
The Cougars being coached by first-year coach Josh Daugett have been hit by everything from poor hitting to the injury bug.
Their most recent games included losing both games of a doubleheader to the Lowndes Academy Rebels last Friday in Canoe.
In the two games combined, the Cougars were only able to muster one total run.
Daugett said his team’s lack of success has just been bad luck.
With a little more than half the season gone, the Cougars are looking towards starting over and making the best of the remaining games that they have left.
Daugett said that his team has the opportunity to secure a three or a four seed in the region tournament if they finish strong.
The Cougars have been working to achieve a hot streak of wins.
Daugett said players have been practicing much better in the last few days.
