FPB to rely on pitching at area tournament
Steve Illingworth believes that good pitching will beat good hitting.
The Hastings Five Points Bank coach will see if that will play out in the Area 7 tournament, which begins today when No. 4-seeded FPB takes on No. 1 Zephyr West Co. (Scottsbluff) tonight at 8 p.m. in Scottsbluff.
"Traditionally in the post season, pitching becomes even more important," Illingworth said. "Right now, our pitching is in good shape and we're as healthy as we've been all year. So I'm optimistic about this weekend."
