Gossel believes part of the inconsistency is due to being such a young team. The Warriors regularly start five sophomores and a freshman. However, with experience, the belief is the Warriors will be in position to make some noise at the end of the year.
Defensively, the Warriors played well as they only had one error in each game.
So far, Covenant had three games rained out, but were able to make up two. However, in playing those two games, the Warriors have had to make some sacrifices.
“We have gotten 11 games in and I know that there are a lot of teams across the state that haven’t gotten that many games in,” Gossel said. “I can’t say that we are in a horrible situation…The biggest frustration is having to go on the road more because of wet conditions. It has been great to get them in, but at the same time, we would rather play at home when we are scheduled to be at home. Coming in to this week, we had been on a six game road trip. Then, we picked up two extra games that would have been at home. We haven’t been home in nine games.”
