A season ago, Hartsfield paced the Cougars offensively, batting .439 with 18 hits and 13 RBI in just 15 games. He was joined by Morton, who toured the spring in .361 and led the club with 21 base knocks. Patrick and Roux were also solid contributors, combining for 24 hits, 22 RBI and eight extra-base hits. Navy blue enthusiasts should expect no less this spring from the quartet, who would certainly love to properly introduce GHS to its new 2A brethren. Pitching, Pitching, Pitching Patrick, along with the sophomore duo of Natorian Nobles and Matthew Lewis, combined to toss 98 1 ⁄3 innings last year — or 79.6 percent of the staff 's workload — a number that took its toll as the season progressed and ultimately manifest- ed in a strikeout-to-walk ratio of .95 to 1. And if Goldsboro is to avoid big innings, it must find some help for its three returning starters. Expect Morton to secure a fair amount of that chore, with pos- sible appearances by Roux as well. 2018 Schedule February 28 Neuse Charter March 1 at Hobbton March 6 Hobbton March 8 at Beddingfield March 12 at Neuse Cha arter March 13 Beddingfield March 16 James Kenan March 20 at East Duplin March 21 Kinston March 23 at Clin nton March 26 Eastern Wayne March 27 Wallace-Rose Hill March 29 Spring Creek April 10 at Midway April 11 Jones Senior April 12 Clinton April 18 at Kinston April 20 at James Kenan April 24 East Duplin April 27 at Wallace-Rose Hill May 1 at Spring Creek May 3 Midway March 12 at Neuse Charter March 13 at Beddingfield March 16 vs. James Kenan March 20 at East Duplin March 21 vs. Kinston March 23 at Clinton GNA | FILE PHOTO @GHS_Cougars
