The Ashley baseball program hosted a tournament last week with teams from Wilmington, North Carolina and even Virginia taking part. The Screaming Eagles needed some strong performances to help it win the event, none stronger than William Noxon. The senior went 5-for-9 at the plate, hit a home run and drove in five runs to help Ashley capture the tournament title. Cam Ellis caught up with Noxon to discuss his big week and being named StarNewsVarsity.com Player of the Week.
You put up some impressive numbers during a recent spring break tournament. What was working for you during those games?
Mainly, my coaches just told me to focus on the ball and get my foot down early. Overall, that helped me stay compact and swing through, which ultimately helped me hit some line drives.
