Prairie Baseball’s 2018 season is approaching this Monday with the Metro Tournament starting up before non-conference play. Prairie baseball is looking for another state championship run like the one they had in 2016.
The team’s scheduled to have a combined 35 appearances with double headers and conferences games intermixed. The team will start with the Metro Tournament.
Going into the first week of play, when asked about their feelings about the upcoming season, Prairie catcher Logan Andeway had this to comment,”I feel good, feel like we got a good chance at winning a lot of games this year with our roster deep with lots of ability. I think we have a great shot making a run at state this season. #THICC” (#THICC being the team’s motto going into the season, Coach Rima is in the process of editing it, some players don’t want it to change.. all players don’t want it to change.)
Prairie isn’t estranged from winning championships with their 2016 season, Prairie went a reported 18-3 (via MaxPreps) and won Iowa’s 4A State Championship.
Even in 2017, the team went a reported a 15-11 (via MaxPreps) with a playoff berth but unfortunately got bounced out of the first round by Waukee.
The team has a lot of returning players that have appeared in playoff games with some players even apart of that championship winning team.
Reportedly, the first game Prairie will play, will be against Mount Vernon at Kennedy on Monday May 21st, followed up with Prairie facing Kennedy at Prairie for the Metro tournament.
