Cougars off to blistering start

Denver Hughes winds up for another pitch against Parker on Thursday, April 13.

Craig’s new baseball coach Joe Shere has to be pleased with his team’s play so far this season.

Off to a 7-0 start, the Cougars have scored 134 runs, an average of over 19 runs per game.

Until their game on Tuesday, Apr. 17, they had not played a full game. Every contest ended in the fifth inning due to mercy rules.

They have swept the season series with Parker, dominating the Vikings 12-2 and most recently, 22-0 on Thursday Apr. 13.

Their game results so far this season include a 32-3 victory over Oregon, a 14-2 over Elkhorn, a 27-0 shutout of Madison LaFollette, and a pair of wis over Beloit Memorial: 19-1 on Saturday, Apr. 15, and an 8-0 victory on Tuesday, Apr. 17.

They were scheduled to begin the season against defending state champion Milton, but the game was postponed due to weather.
