The Warhawks of JDCC improved to 2-1 in tourney play Sunday as they downed Snead State 7-4.

“The key for us was Nick Helton,” Jeff Davis coach Darrell Blevins said in a story on acccathletics.com. “He came out and battled and gave us six good innings. Then we went to Tyler Henry who has been strong for us all year long. Of course he’s a little fatigued right now after pitching three straight days. But that’s the good thing about this time of the year. It’s fun, and the guys don’t give up. They give it everything they’ve got.”
With the win, the Warhawks stay alive in the loser’s bracket. Jeff Davis will now play the loser of the Faulkner and Shelton State game Monday afternoon at 12:30.
