The Oak Hill Academy Raiders did not get off to a great start in district play when they faced Manchester Academy three times last week. Manchester put up 46 runs in the three games, as Oak Hill dropped to 0-3 in conference play to start the league portion of the 2011 season.
Tonight, the Raiders will attempt to refocus to better their chances for a playoff berth, when they take on the struggling Rebels of Carroll Academy.
The Raiders have been on and off so far this season, with the bats heating up at times, and going cold at others.

For many people, Spring Break means a much-needed rest from work or even athletics. For the West Point Diamond Wave team, the week-long holiday will include some much-needed games.
Thanks to a series of rain storms, West Point’s baseball games have been rained out over the last week. The team is hoping to make up ground over Spring Break in order to be prepared for their first district game on March 22 against Saltillo.
“We need to play in a bad way,” said head coach Buddy Wyers on Wednesday.

Armed with one senior and one junior, the Raiders are in the middle of a common cycle in high school sports. This year’s group is the foundation, and a solid one at that, for what Bratton believes are great things to come in the next couple of years.
