Defending state champions, our baseball team is off to another great start at 13 wins and 3 losses. Led by a strong group of seniors in Mark Leonard, Ryan Layne, Tucker Greer, Hunter Noble, Jonathan Jackson, Jordan Taylor, and Josh Johnson, our Colts are looking to have another strong season. As the pre-season #4 team in the state, the stakes are very high. Head coach Jody Hamilton seeks another year to add to his stellar coaching career. He is the only baseball coach in KHSAA history to win a state title at two different schools.


            Led by a lone senior, Taylor Hendrix, a young and talented West Jessamine softball team looks to bounce back from a rough season last year. This season’s team matched last years win total in just the first month of the season. The future is promising, with 4 of the roster spots being occupied by 8th graders, and with a freshman Addison White handling the pitching role.


Our boys team, led by Brody Bilderback, Landon Puckett, Tanner Sparks, Sam Perdue, and Andrew Holt, look to have another great season. Our women’s team has gotten off to a great start despite having only one senior, Allison Brooks.


            Track and Field

This year the girls have continued to grow in their ability to score points as a team. They hope to reach the state level in relays. With only one senior, Lara Duran, we will see where this team goes. The boys have had big shoes to fill, losing 7 seniors from last year. However, this year the team has a lot of senior experience in Christopher Collings, Keagan White, Jonah Shepherd, Ross Gillispie, Brian Phor, and James Burge. At the Transylvania University meet this year, the guys placed 4th and the girls placed 8th.
