Cooper City’s boys baseball team placed second in districts and made it to the first round of regionals last year, the team hopes to go even further this year. With new transfers and talents from last year the boys won’t let anything get in their way of winning districts and making it past regionals. From the looks of the first game that ended in a 12-1 victory for the Cowboys the season is off to an explosive start.
“The goal is to win as many games as possible and win the district this year.” Said Sophomore Jake Lewis.
On February 28th, the Cowboys played their season opener against Plantation High School. Senior Jeremy Brower pitched a complete game and performed very well which propelled the team’s defense leading to a near shutout. Offensively the Cowboys were batting patiently and loaded runners on the bases and scored on 8 runs early in the Second inning. Over the course of the game the Cowboys continued to get off good hits and added 4 more points making it 12-1.
“The victory got me excited for the season because it showed me we’re capable of performing well and there’s a lot to look forward to.” Said Junior Timmy Krause.
