Outlaws open with Cascia Hall

MARLOW — And No. 4 Marlow baseball’s state quarterfinal opponent is... wait for it, wait for it.

That’s what the Outlaws had to do, waiting until Tuesday morning to find out they will be facing No. 8 Cascia Hall in two days. It is the first game of this year’s Class 3A state tournament at Edmond Memorial High School Field at 11 a.m.

The main goal was to be opposite defending state champion Verdigris. That’s been accomplished. The Outlaws won’t have to face the Cardinals until the Class 3A final at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City on Saturday at 2 p.m.

Coach Jeff Brewer is happy the brackets are finally out so his team can get on with preparing for an opponent.

“You get texts and calls everyday from administrators and other coaches wondering ‘when is this coming out,’” Brewer said. “So it’s nice to finally have the bracket released, and now we can figure out a plan for what we’re doing.”

Brewer has been calling his contacts up in Tulsa to get as much information on the Commandos (26-10) as possible. The two teams haven’t had any same opponents, but Brewer thinks his groundwork gives him a good idea of what to expect.

“He’s a good pitching coach is what I hear,” Brewer said. “So I would imagine they’re going to be good with their pitches and the sequencing of their pitches. He’s going to set up back-door pitches by throwing changeups and sliders, and we’re going to have to be good hitters.”

Brewer will pitch senior ace Trey Coffman on Thursday. He said this isn’t time to hold anything back and that Coffman gives them the best chance of progressing to the next round.

After seeing the draw, knowing he’s getting the ball on Thursday, Coffman is already fired up about the Outlaws’ chances.

“We were pumped,” Coffman said. “We got a good draw and hopefully we can go execute. We’ve been in the state tournament the last three years in a row. We’ve just got to put it all together and play the best ball we can.”

However, Brewer isn’t looking that far ahead.

“3A is pretty wide open, but that’s not to say it’s going to be an easy road,” Brewer said. “We’ve got to get some breaks and hope some things go our way, but we’re confident and excited.”

If Marlow makes it past the first round, it will play the winner of No. 2 Kansas versus No. 11 Jones.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
