Commencing the 2014 season, the West Jessamine baseball Colts have high hopes: their eyes set on a region title and more.
“I definitely feel we have the talent to win region and even make a run in state this year,” said junior catcher Hunter Miner. “The leadership of the seniors this year as well as Coach Hamilton’s track record of winning will be huge.”
The Colts start out the season with an impressive 17th ranking as well as a pair of pre-season wins including a route of number 11 Lexington Catholic and a 1 run victory over PRP. The senior leadership will be a large factor in determining the season for the colts.
“This could be the best group of seniors that has come through the program,” Miner said. They have really stepped up so far and been great influences on the rest of us.”
The Colts have a winning tradition and will look to continue that this year. If the Colts can win region, it’ll be the first trip to the State Tournament since 2009, one of the most successful seasons in school history. These Colts have the possibility to be the best team to come through West Jessamine, and they are very aware; the team knows the goal and will be tough to stop. This could be a special year, so don’t miss out. Show up and support the Colts!
