Baseball season has arrived, and the Cougars are looking forward to a great 2013 campaign.
SCC sophomores (from left) Brannon Callaway, Aaron Bedsworth and Dan Droege will lead the Cougar charge from the mound this spring on the baseball field.
With seven returning players and a team full of fresh faces, the outlook appears promising. Leading this year’s squad are three returning pitchers, Aaron Bedsworth, Dan Droege and Brannon Callaway.
“Our goal is to have a winning season. It’s possible with the team we’ve got,” said Bedsworth. “We’re working together more as a team this year. We’ve got a lot of leaders, and it is helping us stay focused.”
For the Cougars, teamwork will play a big role in the success of this season.
“It’s not necessarily that our skill level has improved this season, but we are working together and it’s making a huge difference in our performance,” said Callaway. “We’ve already had some pretty solid practices and put in the hours at the gym. We are getting our work done, and I know it will pay off this season.”
All three returning pitchers agree that the highlight of the season will be regionals. “We can’t wait to compete,” said Droege. “We all know how well we want to perform at the end of the season.”
“Playing baseball in college is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” said Droege. The best part about playing baseball at SCC, the three say, is getting to do what they love. “We get to be around baseball all day. I couldn’t ask for more.”
The Cougars encourage the campus community to come out and support the team as they strive for success.
