Davis County makes a first ever appearance in the state high school baseball tournament tonight when the third-ranked Mustangs take on PCM Monroe in a class 2A quarterfinal.

“The kids are very upbeat, very happy with what they’ve got accomplished so far,” Davis County coach Todd White says.  “But they’re still hungry and they’re still wanting to play some more baseball.”

The Mustangs displayed outstanding pitching depth in posting a 33-1 record to this point and White hopes thst is a factor this week.

“That’s one of the strengths of our team,” White says. “…If everybody stays healthy, we should have plenty of arms.”

It has been six days since the Mustangs clinched a state tournament berth but White is not concerned about the lengthy layoff.

“I think we’ll definitely be ready,” White says.
