Westerville South maintains high expectations

Despite the loss of several key contributors to graduation, the returning players for the Westerville South baseball team have set their sights on matching last year achievements.

South earned its first district title and captured its first OCC championship since 1983, winning the OCC-Capital Division at 12-2.

The season ended for the Wildcats with an 8-7 loss to Olentangy Orange in a Division I regional semifinal.

“We talk about last year,” said coach Tim Bates, who is in his 18th season. “We talk about the standard that was set last year. We talk about the level of play that was set last year and the level of expectations and accountability that players have. They’re making sure that their teammates are accountable. ”

One of the returnees is senior Jack Bates (SS / P), who has moved to shortstop from second base after being named honorable mention all-district and all-league last spring.
