Watauga High baseball coach Pete Hardee has announced that Monday's baseball game between the Pioneers and Davie County, originally scheduled to be played in Boone, has been moved to Mocksville. The forecast is calling for a 40% chance of rain in Boone Monday with cloudy skies and a high of 60 degrees; the

forecast looks more appealing in Mocksville with sunshine and a high of 64. The Pioneers (3-2) have lost two in a row.
The War Eagles (4-0) were ranked fifth in the preseason poll. The War Eagles are also preseason favorites to win the Central Piedmont 4A Conference. They defeated Salisbury 15-0 in their last outing on March 7. Senior righthander Ethan Greene (2-0) will get the starting nod for WHS. Our coverage begins at 6 p.m. on Oldies 100.7 FM.




Hickory High senior Ryan Garlow, who handcuffed Watauga Friday night at LP Fran Stadium in Hickory, has made a verbal commitment to play college baseball at Charleston Southern University in Charleston, S.C., next season. Charleston Southern is a Division I school and member of the Big South Conference.
Garlow (2-0) scattered four hits and struck out five Friday night as the Red Tornadoes (6-0 overall; 1-0 Northwestern 3A/4A Conference) defeated WHS, 3-0. Garlow, a left hander, had a no-hitter for 4 2/3 innings before Ethan Critcher of the Pioneers broke it up with a sharp single up the middle. The Red Tornadoes take on Alexander Central (1-4; 0-2) Tuesday night at home.
