“What an outstanding way to cap off a very good first week of the season,” said Joe Frank, AHS head coach.
“Napoleon came into the doubleheader with a 3-0 record and will win a lot of games this season. We played well behind Sarah Wyse and Hanna Allison today, and hit the ball great against some very solid pitching.
“We still have a long way to go to play at the level we are capable of playing, but I couldn’t have been more pleased with our first week. The key is to come back next week and work hard at improving in all areas of the game.”
