EAU CLAIRE, Wis. -- SportScene 13 for Tuesday, July 29th, 2014 includes Express highlights, Eau Claire Legion state preview, and video of the Menomonie 5th-8th grade football camp.
In regards to the Legion team making it to the State Tournament:
Head coach Mark Faanes says, "Well we lead with our pitching. You know we gave up three runs the whole regional tournament down there in La Crosse last week. We start on the mound, play good defense, and hopefully hit enough to win the ball game."
Pitcher Dalton Roach adds, "It's really easy to pitch when this team is hitting. The last few games you can see we've been putting up a bunch of runs and that takes a lot of stress off a pitcher. So just go out, throw strikes, and we've been doing that well basically the whole summer."
2nd baseman Nick Pedersen also says, "We're really excited as a team. Our goal from day one was to make it to the state tournament do well down there and now that it's finally come, we're trying to see if our hard work can pay off and hopefully advance to the regional tournament."
