For the first time in six years, Head Coach Tanner Lawson is optimistic that the baseball team isn’t rebuilding. He foresees a return to post season runs. Having lost just one significant starter from last year’s 9-13 team, he sees a lot of experience.
Lawson has Mitch Giger again this year as an assistant coach and adds Greg Reynolds to the staff. The goal of the coaches is to win the KCI Conference for the first time since 2013, win districts and go deep into the post season.
Returning this year are seniors Gavin Davis, catcher, Wyatt Kleman, pitcher, and Nathan Plummer, pitcher. Junior Jasper Basel, third base, and sophomore Luke Heili, infield, are also returning starters. Davis and Kleman were KCI Conference Honorable Mention players and Davis, Kleman, and Plummer were second team All District.
West Platte Baseball Players for 2019 are: (front, l-r) Trent Holmes, Joey Groom, Will Euwer, Tanner DeHaven, Luke Heili, Jett McHenry, Tanner Rowe, Kasson Plummer, Wyatt Smith.
