Adam Sasser entered Tuesday with a goal as Greenbrier set its sights on a return trip to the state semifinals.
“I wasn’t going to let this year be the only year I didn’t make it,” Sasser said.
Seniors Sasser and Nick Sandlin made sure of that by combining for 14 dominant innings as Greenbrier swept Union Grove, 2-1 and 6-2, in the Class AAAAA quarterfinals.
“I just told our team we had two guys who really competed on the mound tonight. That was a heck of a job by both of them,” Greenbrier coach Jason Osborn said.
