Jags return experience on diamond

MOORE — Westmoore has become road warriors to start off the fastpitch season. With games at Sapulpa and Enid along with competing in the Broken Arrow tournament, the Jaguars have not played a home gam yet.

That will change Thursday when Westmoore will host Owasso. It’s the type of schedule that veteran teams know how to maneuver threw, which is what the Jags have this year.

“We think they look good; they look different as we lost our catcher, short-stop, and an outfielder from last year’s team,” Westmoore coach Jenni Rollins said. “However, we have some athlete’s ready to fill those positions. We believe we have a very talented group of young ladies and we are excited to get started.”

Despite the loss of key players from last season, the Jaguars return several athletes Rollins is expecting to see big seasons from.

“We always expect strong showings from our seniors and this year that will be Destinie Lookout and Shayla Lucas,” Rollins said. “We also expect, with strong leadership from those young ladies, that the underclassmen in the line-up will also have strong showings.”

While Westmoore has the talent to make a run a state title, the coaching staffs believes its the intangibles and that will decide what type of year they have.

“The biggest challenge for them right now is communication, we are replacing vital roles on the field and some of those kids played next to each other for three years, now they have someone new next to them and they are learning each other’s strengths and weaknesses and how to work together,” Rollins said. “We hope they are exciting to watch, hard-working, skilled individuals who play well together as a team. A team that represents Westmoore on and off the field and has an outs.”
