The Moore American

Time to get serious



Despite a variety of injuries and health concerns, the Lions (29-2) have not felt the sting of defeat since Aug. 24. Both of their losses came on the same day. Since then they have reeled off 21 straight victories.

  “Our seniors set some pretty high goals for the squad and themselves at the start of the year,” Riley said. “They have accomplished two of those goals (go undefeated through district play and host a regional tournament). Now they are pushing forward to accomplish the rest of their list. This squad is very special. The seniors are very strong leaders and there is a great amount of accountability between the players. Every student-athlete knows about the tradition of Moore High School softball and they want to continue to built it.”

The Jaguars haven not been as impressive down the stretch, but it does have wins against Little Axe and Yukon to its credit.

“The team looks good,” Rollins said. “There are always things to work on, we are trying to work on things we can do better to continually improve our team as a whole. We have played well the past week or so and I feel good about where we are as a team.”

After a stellar regular season, Rollins is looking for Larie Amos to have a strong postseason for the Jaguars. But knows it will take a team effort to just get out of the regional round.

“Offensively we need everybody,” Rollins said. “It doesn’t matter where you are in the line-up if everyone is doing their job and we are scoring runs, we can compete. We are successful when we play as a team, when each player prepares themselves to the best of their ability and then focuses on the outcome of the game not individual performance.”
