CHICKASHA – With 17 wins before hitting conference play, the Drover baseball team is off to what might be the best start in the program’s history.

“A lot of things are going really well for us. Pitching, defense, offense — it’s all coming together,” senior pitcher David Garcia said. “We are just ready to start playing in conference and ready to win.”

As a senior on the mound, Garcia is 5-0 with 20 strikeouts in 33.1 innings. He is expected to be a starting conference pitcher all season.
