Dancing In the Moonlight: Amory Baseball Picks Up a Division Win Against Belmont

by Hannah Hoang

If you’ve ever been to an Amory High School baseball game, chances are you’ve heard the 1973 hit song “Dancing In the Moonlight” played after a win as the players and coaches do dirt work on the field and diamond girls clean up the stands.  This was the case on Monday as the Panthers were able to produce a win in a division matchup against Belmont.  Both teams were 0-4 in division play, and the first game of the series was played at Amory, giving them a home-field advantage.  Junior Bo Rock was the starting pitcher for the game and shared what was going through his mind before the game started.  “Going into this game we knew that we needed a division win.  We put forth a great effort and were able to do just that.  Now we have to focus on the second game of the series on Thursday.”  After a tied score of 2-2 in the third inning, the Panthers were able to pull ahead, and the final score of the game was 10-2.  Amory faces Belmont again on Thursday with JV playing at 5 and Varsity playing at 7.
