CHICKASHA – With 27 wins and three Top 25 opponents already out of the way, the Drovers are off to the best start in school history and are already knocking at the door of the school’s most wins, 37.

“Our goal right now is really just to make it to then national tournament,” senior pitcher Seth Sturgeon said. “If we can make it to that, we probably will have secured that goal of the most wins in school history.”
