Elgin, Cache eye Class 4A regional meets
Districts are done for the teams in 4A, 5A and 6A, and now it's onto regionals this coming weekend for several area high school baseball teams.
Both Comanche County 4A schools Elgin and Cache are both eager to see just where they stand once the regionals arrive this week.
One regional contender looking to get over the hump is Elgin (22-12) which will travel to Clinton this weekend where they will first meet Madill.
Meanwhile Cache (18-15) looks to provide some fireworks when it travels to Oklahoma City where it will battle host Heritage Hall in a first-round contest. The Bulldogs advanced on the bracket with a pair of wins over Newcastle last Thursday, winning the first game 5-4 and the second 10-4.
Owls handle Chickasha
After beating Chickasha twice in districts this weekend, 15-2 and 6-0, the Owls put together another impressive 20-plus win campaign but are still haunted by regionals a year ago when they plated only three runs the entire tournament.
"We choked in regions last year," Elgin senior Jaken Snider said. "So we are very hungry. And it's my last year to make it to State."
On a roster largely made up of a talented senior class, it's the final go-around for several other Owls who equally hungry.
While the seniors have done a lot of the heavy lifting, younger players are also stepping up. The Bianchini brothers, Trevor and Lance, have been as consistent as they come.
