There is no substitute for experience.
Starkville Academy proved that Friday as the team secured a season-opening 7-6 victory against Oak Hill.
"It was the little things," Lady Volunteers coach Kayla Mosley said. "Especially when Oak Hill put the ball in play, the outfielders knew where to go with it, (and) infielders knew what to do. That is stuff that you have to learn through games and it is becoming more natural to them."
Along with a strong-fielding performance, Starkville Academy showed maturity "at the plate."
"We hit a lot of good pitches early," Mosley said. "Being comfortable in that situation is just what we needed."
