CHICKASHA – Bringing back some key players and filling spots with new faces — freshmen and transfers alike — the 2012 Drover baseball team is set and ready for a strong spring.
“I’m pretty excited about it. I think we have a good club. It’s probably one of the better clubs we’ve had in the last few years,” head coach Mike Ross said. “For the most part, everyone is excited, and we’re ready to get started.”
CHICKASHA – The USAO baseball and softball teams look back at the now-completed 2011 season with pride. Both teams battled in every game throughout the season to meet their goal to reach the SAC tournament.
“All in all, it was a winning season, and the guys worked real hard all year to get where we wanted to go and that’s all you can really ask for,” Assistant Baseball Coach Matt Hibbitts said of the baseball team.
The Drover baseball team scored nine runs off five homers on Friday afternoon in Plainview, Texas, for USAO’s final Sooner Athletic Conference game but ended up falling 20-11 in nine innings to Oklahoma City.
