The varsity baseball team is fired up! Wooo!

The Gary Bobcats Baseball team has advanced to The 2A Region 3 Quarterfinals against the Douglas Indians in Nacogdoches on Wednesday, May 16 at 7:00 pm. They will play the second game on Saturday, May 19 at 3:00 pm with a third game to follow as needed.

Coach Mark Brown is happy with the team’s progress. He said, “We’re firing on all cylinders!”

In the first round, they played against the Colmesneil Bulldogs and won the Bi-district Championship in a best 2 out of 3 series. In the Area round, they swept the Cushing Bearkats in two games with senior Landon Odom pitching a No-Hitter in game one.

All the players have motivational mottos this year.  Odom’s motto is, “Use the gifts God gave you.” Well, these boys have certainly done that.
