Published 3:00 am Saturday, March 14, 2015

The Charles Henderson baseball teams finds themselves in a new classification this season, but in a familiar position in the initial Alabama Sports Writers Association rankings.

The Trojans are the top ranked team in 5A, the same position they occupied for the past two season in 4A.

CHHS head coach Derek Irons is pleased to see his team recognized by the ASWA, but knows there is still much work to be done. “Any time our program receives positive recognition on a state-wide scale it’s great for our players and our school” he said. “But at the same time our guys understand that there is still a long season in front of us and we need to continue to improve every day.”
