SALINA — Ethan Tavarez knew exactly what he wanted after Iola baseball clinched its first-ever state championship. In fact, it hit him even before the bigness of the moment did.

“My first thought was, ‘Where’s the dog pile?’” Tavarez said. “And as soon as I saw where everybody was, I just took off running. There were so many emotions going through my body. I was just happy that we won. We didn’t quit and neither did (Bishop Ward). They were a good solid team.”

That’s where all of the Mustangs, including head coach Mark Percy and assistant Ryan Latta, converted, a few feet to the right of the pitcher’s mound.
