Northview swept Snook Christian on March 9 in a doubleheader, and topped East Webster 6-2 last Saturday at home.

The Chiefs defeated Snook 15-0, 16-0 in the doubleheader.

“Those were two good wins for our baseball program,” NHS baseball coach Jeremy Greenwell said. “We took the lead early, and had a chance to get a lot of our younger players some varsity experience. There was a good atmosphere that our fans continue to set for our program.”

East Webster, a Class 2A program of Mississippi, recently won a state championship in baseball, Greenwell said.

“We had a chance to play a quality championship program out of Mississippi,” he said. “Jackson Moore, along with the rest of our defense, was fundamentally sound through 6 innings, keeping the game tied at 1-1.”

Greenwell said in the bottom of the sixth inning, Seth Killam led off with a home run, and the Chiefs scratched four additional runs in the same frame.

Moore had a no hitter through six innings, and Killam closed the game on the mound.
