In the last game of the regular season, the Jaguars took the win 7-6 against Olathe West Thursday, May 9.

Despite their aggressive offense, senior Cole Moore believed they could have improved in other areas.

“I thought offensively we played great, however we could’ve cleaned up a few things defensively and on the mound,” Moore said. “I thought I played alright, however it’s a team game and our coaches put us in great position to win to win every game.”

Throughout the game, junior Isaac Ammann and the team helped each other to pull out the win.

“The game went very well. We played well throughout the whole game,” Ammann said. “The main time [we worked as a team] was in the sixth inning when two guys walked to have the bases loaded. Then, Cole Moore hit a triple for us to take the lead.”

Although the team is confident, Moore plans to finish the rest of the season strong.

“Our mindset going into every game is that we are going to win or we have a good chance at winning any ball game we play in,” Moore said. “However we have some unfinished business to take care of these next two weeks.”

According to Ammann, the team used the game as preparation for postseason play.

“[We planned to] end the regular season on a positive note and get more at bats before heading into regionals next week,” Ammann said.

This win made Moore and the rest of the team hopeful to finish the season with a championship.

“I thought this was a good game to win heading into regionals. It was a confidence booster for the team,” Moore said “Me, my teammates and my coaches all believe we can win a state title and we think we will.”
