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.”
