TRUSSVILLE – The Alabama Sports Writers Association has unveiled three baseball and softball polls throughout the 2015 season, and in all three editions Hewitt-Trussville has ruled the roost in both sports.
On the baseball diamond, head coach Jeff Mauldin and the boys have constructed a 14-2 overall record. However, one of those losses came Tuesday night at home against area foe No. 7 Vestavia Hills, giving the Huskies a 0-1 start in, perhaps, the strongest area in the state.
