Deck stacked against Marlins
The score was 62-45.
The Marlins only were able to field eight of their 12 players due to illnesses, said Coach Mark Spencer. And some of the Marlins who were playing were sick, too, he said.
The Marlins were tired also because they were nearing the end of a long string of games: Six games in seven days.
Still, Spencer saw some positives come out of the Sinton game.
"We did some good things," he said. "Like ball movement later in the game."
It didn't hurt Sinton's chances that it is a 3A school with more students to draw from to put together a team than Port Aransas, which is class 1A.
The Marlins still have a winning record this season, 2-1, in games with same-size schools. They beat Austwell Tivoli and Highland Christian
