On senior night, the defending Class 2A State Champion Spring Hill Bears secured an impressive victory on the diamond against a tough and good Parkers Chapel Trojans 7-5 to extend their path of victories for an 11- game winning streak. 

Seniors' Will Phillips, Cameron Powell, Kaleb Blair, Parker Freeman, Connor Bell, Cam Middleton, Justin Adcock and Levi Lee all were recognized before the first pitch was thrown to begin play. The seniors went out big in their final home game of the season and took care of business on the diamond for their night.

Bears' Wesley Featherston stepped up big and collected two key home runs to help spark the Spring Hill offense from the frame.

Senior Blair earned the win from the mound as the winning pitcher and Featherston got the save to close out the game in the seventh. 

The Bears sparked early for an 4-0 lead advantage after the first inning. The second inning was scoreless with both team accounting for a run scored apiece in the third inning. The Bears held an 5-1 lead through the third inning, then added two more runs scored through the fifth inning despite the Trojans allowed one run scored in the fifth. Spring Hill maintained a 7-2 advantage going into the sixth inning, where the Trojans sparked for two runs scored to cut their deficit trailing Spring Hill 7-4.

In the seventh inning, the Bears came alive strong defensively only to allow the Trojans one run scored in their attempt to rally back and Spring Hill seek revenge to split for the conference series meeting against Parkers Chapel.

Head coach Cameron Brown continues to remain confident in the Bears throughout the season. Brown was very pleased by the production the Bears have shown in their previous battles and believes they're playing with a sense of urgency as a championship caliber team.

"Beating Parkers Chapel was a big win for us. We're hitting the ball well offensively and been solid defensively all year. The guys are pulling together and playing as a team. They're not showing nervousness and got confidence. Our goal is to make the state tournament and get back to the state championship game," Brown said. 

The Bears have qualified for the 2A South Regional Tournament next week, but finish out the regular season today on the road against Rison. If the Bears win and Parkers Chapel lose their final regular season game, Spring Hill can share apiece of the conference title to be co-conf. champs. 

Thus far, the Bears are 22-2 overall.
