Tigers improve record with two 5A wins as regionals near; Guymon hosts Hugoton today at 4 p.m., with seniors honored with their families

April 26, 2012

A pair of big Class 5A wins this week have improved the Tigers’ standings as regular season play nears the end.
The Guymon baseball record stands at 7-8 in district play and 7-11 overall.
The Tigers will enter the regional playoffs May 3 at a still undetermined location against an undetermined opponent, according to Head Coach Dave O’Sullivan.
Unlike Class 4A postseason play, there is no district playoff in 5A.
Guymon baseball and other sports were bumped to 5A before the start of the current school year due to increased enrollments.
The Tigers took both ends of a doubleheader at Capitol Hill in Oklahoma City on Tuesday. The first game ended with the Tigers winning 6-4 in 11 innings. The final game ended with a Guymon 6-3 win with the game called due to darkness after four innings. Capitol Hill’s ball field is not lighted.
Today, the Tigers will play their final double header at home, with Hugoton, Kan., beginning at 4 p.m. Senior athletes and their families will be honored on the field a few minutes prior the start of the first game.
A final district doubleheader is scheduled for Saturday at Shawnee, beginning at 2 p.m.
O’Sullivan said it is likely that Guymon will go into the regionals seeded sixth in District 1, with the District 2 No. 3 seed as the first round opponent.
The Tigers have been playing well recently, with a 5-0 shutout of Liberal a few days prior to the winning doubleheader at Capitol Hill.
Guymon now has a 5-0 winning streak over rival Liberal that followed several years of Redskin domination over the Tigers.
A scheduled doubleheader at Moscow that was cancelled because of inclement weather will not be played due to scheduling.
