Northpoint Baseball Finishes With Winning Record
The Northpoint baseball team closed out its season in the regional tournament, taking a win against Fayette before bowing out to eventual state semifinalist Harding Academy. The team finished with a record of 15-13, including four wins in a highly competitive district.
Split Non-Conference Games, Prepare for Regional
The Northpoint baseball team split a set of four non-conference games during the final week of the season in preparation for the playoffs, which begin later this week. The Trojans shut out Cordova 5-0 on Senior Night before dropping a 10-0 decision to St. George’s the following day. The team closed out the regular season with a win over Germantown, 9-2, and a loss at Rossville, 5-4.
Northpoint Closes District Play with Walk-Off Win
Blake Cherry’s two-out double in the bottom of the ninth inning plated two runs in Northpoint’s 7-6 win over Harding on Friday. Dillon Pool picked up the win with three effective innings of relief. Earlier in the week, Harding had picked up 13-5 and 2-0 wins over the Trojans. Northpoint dropped a 10-6 decision to MUS on Saturday to fall to 12-9 on the season. Justin Jones and Daniel Casto recorded pitching wins. The Trojans have a full slate of conference action this week before the regional tournament begins the following week.
Trojans Drop Series to ECS
Northpoint’s baseball team lost three close games to ECS last week, 7-2, 3-2, and 5-2. The Trojans are now 3-3 in district play with an important series this week with Harding.

The division-opening wins over FACS came on the road (3-1) on Monday, at Northpoint (3-2), and back at FACS (8-6) on Thursday. Strong pitching and timely hitting proved to be the difference in each game. The Trojans scored early and piled on late in Saturday’s 10-1 win over Tunica.
