The Tennessee team is accomplishing something they really haven’t grasped yet. Head coach Danny Hollingsworth told TSNSports Monday “that the team is playing its best ball.” He said “they just don’t realize what they have accomplished.”
Marshall County continued its dominance Monday morning with a 10-0 win over Hazlet, NJ. With the win, Marshall County got some much needed time off before facing Prairie Village, KY, who upset the defending champion Oviedo, FL all-stars 1-0.
