High School Baseball: Mustangs 10, Bulldogs 0; Mustangs 4, Bulldogs 0

Thanks to wintry weather postponing the baseball season, it wasn’t until Tuesday that the Mustangs got their second taste of ball diamond dirt and mitt leather. The Mustangs’ shut-out sweep of Anderson County probably tasted pretty good.

“I told the Chanute coach today that it doesn’t feel like we even played that first game of the season,” it was so long ago, Percy said. “But you just didn’t know what to expect coming in to today. It’s been about a month, or at least it seems like it. Three weeks. It’s crazy. They were excited to play, for sure. We spent a lot of time practicing in the gym, which for baseball is not good. It gets old after a while.”

The Mustangs opened things up with a dominating 10-0 shutout in game one and followed that up with a slightly less flashy but still very effective 4-0 win in game two. With the wins, Iola, who came into this week ranked eighth in the Kansas Baseball Coaches Association poll in class 4A-II, stands at 2-1 and 2-0 in Pioneer League play.
