Chard: EHS made strides in spring football
Beginning his second year at the helm, and with two weeks of spring football practice concluded, Enid head coach Steve Chard believes both he and the team have developed a level of comfort and trust with each other that bodes well for the season ahead.
“We were hoping to see a little more confidence and familiarity with our schemes,” Chard said Friday after the final day of spring practice. “We wanted to see better practice habits. I believe we saw all of that.
“Now that we have been with each other over a year, there’s no guessing games with what they are going to get from me. They know what to expect from the coaching staff. Last year everything was new. The system was new, my style was different.”
Murray State successful in first Series game
Murray State’s Colt Pickens drove in the go-ahead run in the seventh inning and reliever Eddie Broll made it stick for two more frames as the NJCAA Division II World Series’ de facto home team won its first-ever game in the tournament, edging Brunswick (N.C.), 2-1 Saturday at David Allen Memorial Ballpark.
Pickens broke a 1-1 tie with a line drive to right that scored Daniel Arthur from third on the second pitch Brunswick reliever Kyle Shields threw. Shields was called for a balk before he threw his pitch in the game, moving Arthur and Keach Ballard to second and third with no outs.
