Tigers Get Sweet Revenge During 7 Game Winning Streak

The WSHS Tiger baseball team is playing some great baseball, sporting a seven game winning streak, with the momentum growing stronger, with each game.

After going 1 – 2 overall in the UC Tournament down south, the boys have rallied by going 8 – 1 in their last three tournaments. The Tigers have put on a fabulous showing behind fantastic pitching, great defense and hot bats to go 2 -1 overall at the Grant Tournament, 3 – 0 in the WSHS Tournament, and 3 - 0 in the Jena/Caldwell Tournament.

The Tigers are competing against some solid teams, helping them become more confident and tougher with each game. They played with excitement and did not easily back down. They came back with several victories in the 7th inning. Never count them out; they are hungry and having fun as a team.

At the time of this writing, the WSHS baseball team is 10 – 6 overall and ranked 7th in the state.
