Bullpups Competitive in all Spring Sports


 

Successful fall and winter sports seasons have turned into successful spring sports at Caney Valley schools. Superintendent Blake Vargas says they are looking at bringing home a couple of titles in boy's and girl's track and field. He says the baseball team has been really competitive and the softball team has exceeded expectations and is riding a hot streak right now. The Bullpups are definitely a team that no one should underestimate no matter what sport they are competing in.

 

Vargas says they will be adding a junior high cross country component for next year, which will only help the track team come time for that season.

Red Raven Baseball Work Wins


 

Heading into the final week of the regular season it's been a roller coaster for the Coffeyville Red Raven baseball team. Head Coach Jake Martin says "we've battled a lot of adversity due to weather, but our team has exceeded with each test. We've had great contributions from our sophomores catcher Brett Mitchell, pitcher Gavin Heltemes, and center fielder Antonio Culotta. We've also had some freshmen step up which has helped the progression of our program. Outfielder Blake Carroll, first baseman Jorge Ortiz, pitchers Aaron Bechtel and Quintin Romero. Heading into last week of regular season we are tied for third place in conference and momentum is on our side."

 

The Ravens are currently on a stretch were they've won 12 of their last 16 games. With six games left on their schedule Assistant Head Coach Stephen McNett says “this year has been an amazing experience for me. Working with these young men on and off the field and seeing their accomplishments has been exciting. Coaching with Jake Martin has been great and working with him on and off the field has been a fun experience. We have a bunch of guys that are hungry to work and to win, which fits into our motto 'Work Wins'. Going into final stretch of season is going to be exciting.”

Coach Herkleman Discusses Match-up with Connors State


 

 

With a National Title just a few wins away, the Red Ravens continue there quest to the top tonight in Hutchinson. The Ravens waited patiently with a first round bye to face the winner of Connors State and Central Georgia Tech, and after the first round win the Red Ravens will face off against the 12 seeded Connors State College. Having sometime to watch the game between those two teams was Hall of Fame head coach Jay Herkleman. We sat down with coach and spoke about what he saw and what to expect out of the 12 seeded Connors State Cowboys. He say's the cowboys are a very talented 3 point shooting team, even with the high amount of 3 point shots they take on average. Connors State is going to force the Red Ravens to stick mainly with a man to man defense hoping to not leave too many open shots, knowing this Cowboys team can knock them down from anywhere. Coach Herkleman is proud of the ways the guys have been this past month, now winning 17 games in a row, but is concerned that they had to wait a full two weeks between games. It effected them in the first round of the Jayhawk conference tournament and coach expects a little of the same tonight. You can listen to their first game of their quest to the title tonight over on your home for Red Ravens Athletics 98.1 KUSN.
