Focused on District play

Warriors currently sit with unblemished 4-0 record in District


The Washington Warriors are focused on the task at hand.

The task is District 3A-2 and it’s the key to postseason play for Washington head coach Jeff Kulbeth’s team.

“The name of the game in high school baseball is the District schedule,” Kulbeth said. “You try to win a District title and it helps with Regionals.”

The Warriors are back to the District grind after finishing 1-2 at the Marlow tournament.

They defeated Mount St. Mary in the opening round, 10-4.

“We got a good win against St. Mary,” Kulbeth said.

Marlon Moore got the nod to start on the bump. He was replaced by Canon Stewart.

Kade Norman closed out the final inning of the game.

The trio combined for seven strikeouts in the game.

At the plate Reese Stephens went 3-4 and doubled.

Kane Springer went 2-4 with a triple.

Washington was defeated 9-0 by Ft. Cobb-Broxton in the next game and 16-4 by Bishop McGuinness in the next two games.

The score was 0-0 until Ft. Cobb broke it open in the fourth inning.

“They put up some runs and we didn’t answer,” Kulbeth said.

In the loss to Bishop McGuinness the Warriors had problems finding the strike zone.

“We walked 13 on Saturday,” Kulbeth said. “You can’t give teams that caliber 13 extra guys. We have to pitch better.”

The coach thought his team hit the baseball well at times but they weren’t able to string together hits to produce runs.

“We swung it pretty good at times but we’re not coming up with timely base hits,” he said.  “We also need to pitch better and be more efficient on the mound. We’ll have to keep pitch counts down.”

Now it’s back to District play.

Monday’s scheduled game against Comanche was rained out but they were able to play Tuesday.

The Warriors are 10-7 overall.
