By Dennis Carter
Naruna - Today's ABC 13 high school Team of the Week is the William Campbell baseball team.The Generals are enjoying another postseason run. They came up one win short last season - losing to Riverheads in the state title game. So they have two motivational slogans for this season, "One More" and "Last Day" and they took two steps closer to that goal by beating Rappahannock, then Matthews Wednesday night to improve to 14-and-8.Andy Haga, WILLIAM CAMPBELL HEAD COACH, said "Because of the fact that we came up a little bit short last year we just sort of use it as one more rep in practice, one more rep in the cage, one more whatever it takes to get back there again."Mitch Mason, WILLIAM CAMPBELL CATCHER, said "We've had leadership the last two years that we haven't had in the past and that's carried us this far."Reporter (on tape) - What has enabled you to maybe hit your stride at the right time?Brandon West, WILLIAM CAMPBELL PITCHER, said "Everybody just got tired of losing. They wanted to work harder so we did what we got to do."
