No. 5 Palisade Looks Ahead to Dristrict Tourney
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.--The fifth-ranked Palisade baseball team will look to stay undefeated in league play when they close out the regular season Saturday in a doubleheader against Eagle Valley.
The Bulldogs clinched their second-straight Western Slope League title after a come-from-behind victory over Delta Tuesday night; however, head coach Steve Moore said the team needs to stay focused moving forward.
"I felt like last night we weren't focused," Moore said. "We weren't mentally prepared when the game started. We got behind, and then we got rolling. But in the districts, you have to be mentally prepared going into the first game. It's a single elimination and it's cut throat, and we've got to get over that hurdle."
If the Bulldogs manage to sweep the third-place Devils, they'll take a 13-game winning streak into the district tournament.
