     The West Brunswick High School softball team used the bunt effectively in beating New Hanover 6-2 in a non-conference game Friday at West.

    Bunts set up and scored the final five runs as the Trojans improved to 3-1.

    “That’s one thing we can do,” West coach Joe Noble said. “We can bunt. If we can’t hit, we can bunt, and we can run.

    “But we can hit, don’t take me wrong when I say that. We’re able to play all aspects of the game. And that will take us a long way, I think.”

  • Enough already: Is it spring yet?
