The Waxahachie baseball tradition has been carried on for years and will continue to strive for years to come. Coming from Waxahachie, the team not only wants to win, but expects it. The winning is more than just a district title, it is a deep run in the playoffs. The team hopes to win the State Championship and accomplish what previous teams have yet to achieve.

 

“I had a feeling at the beginning of the season that we were going to be a great team and make a deep playoff run,” said Senior Taylor Bright.

Being underdogs, nobody expected the team to do much, but it gives them motivation. The coaches do the best they can to get the team mentally and physically prepared for what it is going to take to achieve such a seemingly impossible task.

“I love the coaching staff and the way our team plays as a family,” Senior Jake Johnston said. “We put the team before ourselves and that’s what makes us such a good team.”

Leading the district with only three games left in the regular season, the Indians have set themselves up to become the team nobody has expected them to be. They have set up a good spot for the playoffs and all they need to do is finish the season off strong.

“I know that we are going to win the next three games and bring home a district title,” said Senior Bailey Medlock. “We just can’t take these last games too lightly and I think we will just fine.”

The Indians haven’t won a state title in many years and haven’t had a good playoff run in five years. People have seemed to believe that this year is going to be a different story.

“Being this is my senior year and the last chance I get to make it, I’m going to give it everything I have,” said Senior Luke Morton.
