Wildcats hang on to beat Hoxie

Thursday, March 17, 2016

Trumann jumped out to an 11-0 lead early only to see Hoxie chip away at the lead throughout the game before the Wildcats went on to post a 17-16 win in high school baseball action this past Monday in Trumann. The game had a little extra interest as Trumann's Jason Dahl coached against his brother Adam Dahl of Hoxie.
