ABINGDON, Va. (WJHL) – The favorite to win the Mountain 7 continued its strong performance in this early season. Abingdon has a strong Class 3 squad, taking down Gate City 11-0 on Thursday afternoon.

Ethan Ketron put on a clinic early at the plate, crushing a ball to right field in his first at-bat which resulted in an RBI double. In his next at-bat, he smoked another ball in the same direction, but over 50 feet farther as it cleared the wall for a home run.
