CHICKASHA – The Drovers met their goal to make it into the Sooner Athletic Conference tournament this season and play three games to compete in the SAC Championship.

“We played really good baseball at the start of the season,” Assistant Coach Matt Hibbitts said. “And then we kind of a hit a rough patch for a little while in the middle of the season, but we’ve really come on strong this last series getting ourselves ready to go to the conference tournament.”

Entering as eighth-seed, the Drovers have an uphill battle in the tournament, but Hibbitts said they will fight hard to stay in it.

“Either way, we’re 0-0 going into the conference tournament, so it really doesn’t matter,” Hibbitts said. “We’re giving ourselves a good chance to go over there and win, and we’re going to give it everything we have.”
