Baseball players poised for playoffs


By James Howey

The Cavaliers baseball team won the Jayhawk conference with a record of 42-11 record and 29-7 conference record. This was a very impressive feat with how young the Cavs are this season. The Cavs have 22 freshmen on the roster and head coach Kent Shelly said that his sophomores and coaching staff have done a terrific job with this team.

“Our nine sophomores and three assistant coaches have worked their butts off to get this team ready to compete in the Jayhawk conference,” Shelley said. “I’ve been extremely proud of what these kids have accomplished this season.”

The Cavs will now look to the postseason where they are the number one overall seed and will host Cloud County Community College Saturday at 1 p.m.

“Cloud is going to provide a lot of challenges for us,” Shelley said. “Greg Brummett is great coach and I think with their record and stats are a little misleading about them.” The Cavs have really come on strong down the stretch winning 14 of 15 games. Coach Shelley feels very confident with his team heading into the postseason.

“I’ve really liked our offense all year and we don’t have any easy out in our line up from 1-9,” Shelley said. “Our Bullpen has really stepped up in the last few weeks and I just like our team’s demeanor and focus right now.”
