Gore happy with baseball progress

CHICKASHA —

The summer baseball season may have ended earlier than the Fightin’ Chicks wanted it to, but Head Coach Brad Gore sees it as a steady improvement for his team.

Gore points to positive play from his team over the course of the season and drew a blank when considering any negatives to the last few months of development.

“I saw a lot of mental growth from our guys," Gore said. "Maturity came a long ways this season. I saw a lot of growth and positives that we can carry on through the winter to get better for the spring."

As the months went by, the Fightin' Chicks began to become more consistent and shorten the gaps in their play.

“Early in the season we kept finding ways to lose games, but towards the end we we’re finding ways to win," Gore said. "We’re quite a ways ahead of where we were when we started."

The summer has been a way for the Chicks to improve their young pitchers, said Gore.

“Brock Henderson, Brooks Bush, Brandon Shumway, Brayden Belden, and Mario Medina did a real good job this summer, and developed really well,” Gore said.

Gore is aware that the team is young and expects to have some growing pains; however, he’s very confident that his team will have some success when spring ball comes around.

“I think we’ve got a good core, and have a chance to have a good ball club," Gore said. "We’ll just have to grow up quick, because the spring season is different with everybody trying to win the district and get to the playoffs."

Chickasha baseball has done well this season because of the way the whole team executed; but, Gore was impressed with one particular player who stepped and contributed a lot to the success of the team.
