If it is Tuesday, then Erin Blizzard must be throwing a perfect game.
So much for having a letdown.
Sometimes, what looks, on paper, to be a tough week was not so bad after all.
Using an altered batting order, Lugoff-Elgin scored 10 runs and, more importantly, collected its first Region 4-4A win of the season in a 10-3 victory over host Irmo last Friday night.
Three nights after having pitched a perfect game against Richland Northeast, Lugoff-Elgin's Erin Blizzard threw blanks at Irmo.
Two nights after a mistake-filled loss to Region 4-4A foe Richland Northeast, Lugoff-Elgin baseball coach Randy Stokes was interested to see how his team would react in Thursday's non-conference game at White Knoll.
That grimace on the face of Randy Stokes spoke volumes.
Sophomore Erin Blizzard fired a perfect game at visiting Richland Northeast as Lugoff-Elgin rolled to a 10-0, five-inning victory on Tuesday night.
You get the feeling that Randy Stokes would rather Blythewood had scored its four runs on a grand slam than the way they did in handing visiting Lugoff-Elgin a 4-0 loss last Friday night.
A year ago, the Lugoff-Elgin boys' tennis team got their first taste of post-season competition as the Demons played their way into the state class 4A tournament.
As a former pitcher, Randy Stokes more than appreciates what he has seen and received from his throwers through the first seven games of the season.
Sometimes, you just tip your hat to an opponent and live to fight another day.
Playing in a pair of extra inning games, Lugoff-Elgin got more than it bargained for in last week's Carolina Ale House Classic baseball tournament.
New coach. New season. New attitude.
There is no telling how good Lugoff-Elgin's tennis record would have been had it been able to get several of its matches to go into first doubles for the victory.
If there was a recurring theme for Lugoff-Elgin in the Kershaw-Richland Wooden Bat Classic, it was the Demons' having their share of chances to pull out wins in three of their games, only to have nothing to show for those efforts in the win column.
