Brand New Season



The baseball team got a pre-season ranking of 6th in the state of Kansas. Amongst the Vikings in the top of the state include Lawrence Free State, Maize, and Shawnee Mission East. The Vikings open on March 31 against Olathe North, a team they beat 10-0 last year in the opener.

The baseball team has been emphasizing on their approach at the plate, keying in on the offensive side of the game. With a new assistant coach, new material has been brought to the team. Clutch hitting, base running, and pitching are three things the coaching staff has been stressing. If they can master those three the Vikings will have a promising season and hope to return to state after missing out last year.
