With baseball season under way, the Bear Baseball team has had a solid start to the season with a 3-1 record in district. Overall, the Bears boast a 12-8 record. However, with much of the season left, they will not be satisfied with this success and still strive to win a district championship.  

“Every season is completely different and a reset,” senior Ashton Landry said. “We learn what we needed to fix last year and are improving on it.” 

According to Landry, the team is not close to where they want to be, but are working to get there every day.  

“We are a lot more focused on the goal this year, which is a district championship,” senior Gunner Johnson said. “I want to help my team by being a leader on and off the field.” 

Some of the team’s biggest challenges have been playing some vital games without their key players. For Landry, the most difficult part of being a baseball player is staying locked in pitch by pitch.  

“I plan to help my team by doing everything I can to put the team first and being the best leader, I can be on and off the field,” Landry said. “My personal goal is to try to help this team win a district championship.” 

The Bears return to action this Friday when they play at 7 p.m. in Silsbee.
