Millard West had a great showing this weekend. Although they came out fast and shut out both teams, they always have ways to improve. “Our team overall can work on feeding off each other’s energy and keep the offense going when there are runners on base,” senior Andrew Tauber said. “I think we all expected to play the way we did Saturday. We all came ready to play and ready to win.”

The Wildcats celebrate a big win earlier in the season against Millard North. This year the Cats finished with a regular season record of 24-5, and they will be a number one seed in their District tournament bracket, however there is always room for improvement. “I think we need to score more runs in the middle innings,” senior Sam Novotny said. “We usually put up runs in the first and last couple innings but I think it would really help if we could put a few more runs on the scoreboard for the middle innings and put more pressure on the other team.”

Whenever you’re in a game like that, your adrenaline fuels your game.”
