High School Baseball: Mustangs 4, Eagles 2; Mustangs 3, Eagles 2
Iola head coach Mark Percy was elated Tuesday night after the Mustangs series at Wellsville.
It wasnt because his team swept the then-13-1 Eagles, though that helped. It wasnt because the Mustangs had a good pitching performance from their top two arms or that the Iola defense made numerous acrobatic catches, each more important to the game than the last. All of that was gravy.
No, it was the fact the Mustangs found themselves in two grind-it-out dogfights versus a team with comparable talent after plowing their way through seemingly run-rule after run-rule this season that made the Iola coach most pleased.
