The Wildcats wrapped up their final non-district slate with a 7-5 win over Killeen Shoemaker on March 6. 

“A win’s a win and that’s exciting. I know that as a team we kind of slacked off in the second half of the game and still have some things to work on as a total team aspect,” said first year head coach Hollis Stringer. 

Elgin got on the board early and built a lead, but faltered around the middle of the game and let the Grey Wolves chip away at the Wildcat lead. 

Now the Wildcats will turn their focus on a competitive district 19-5A schedule, with three games to be played over three days during spring break this week. 

“We’re chasing big things. We’re looking to make a splash and raise some eyebrows and I hope that we finish spring break 3-0,” Stringer said. 

Elgin will travel to Cedar Creek Tuesday, before hosting the Eagles Wednesday night, followed by a home game against Georgetown Thursday night. 

Stringer thinks his team is ready to step up to the plate. 

“We’ve got great guys who are ready to play. We’ve got guys ready to step in when their name is called and earn that position and earn that opportunity,” Stringer said.  

“Just make sure our guys’ heads are right, make sure they are in the mindset. These guys are used to playing, three or four baseball games in one day over the summer, so playing three days consecutively, one game a day, it’s not as big a deal, it’s just every game counts. 

“We have team goals in mind and as long as we reach those goals we’re going to find our success this season,” Stinger added.
