HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Hattiesburg High baseball held the first Dr. Clemon Terrell Baseball Classic on Saturday in honor of the late Hattiesburg parks and recreation director.

The Tigers grabbed an 11-1 win over Lawrence County followed by a 3-2 win over Oak Grove to improve to 8-2 on the year.

Hattiesburg coach Joe Hartfield and Warriors coach Chris McCardle both talked about how close games this early in the season benefits their respective ball clubs down the road.

“Anytime you’re able to hold onto a win, that’s huge,” Hartfield said. “But especially against Oak Grove and coach Chris McCardle, they do such a good job and have such talented players. It’s a good feeling for us and it’s a big win.”

“We haven’t found a way to close it out yet like we have in the past,” McCardle said. “That just comes with maturity and games and experience. Our kid are fighters, they’ll bounce back and we’ll be better next time out.”
