Even though the baseball squad was able to take hold of sole possession of first place in the Jayhawk East Community College Conference, the Cavs are still in first tied with Neosho County with a 21-7 conference record. Pitcher Justin Wyant recorded a no hitter against Independence Community College Saturday in the Cavs’ 16-0 win. Wyant earned KJCCC pitcher of the week last week as well. The Cavs are 33-11 on the season and still have eight conference games left down the stretch to try to regain the lead in the Jayhawk East.
The Cavaliers continued their great season by sweeping Hesston on sophomore day and clinching The Jayhawk East conference in a split with Neosho County on Tuesday. Despite the Cavs’ success, they have been prone to slow starts in some games. Many times the Cavs find themselves in a hole late in the games, and are not always able to pull themselves out. The Cavs split with Hutchinson as well as Neosho, two teams who both have losing records. The Cavs’ outfielder Jamison Koethe earned KJCCC player of the week last week for her performances. The Cavs are 29-6 on the season and 22-6 in conference. The Cavs will close the regular season at MCC Maple Wood Tuesday and will open up regional play at home against Allen Community College on April 26.
