A few of those triples last week could have easily been homers, White said. But the Titans play in a big ballpark, and Waggoner's drives instead hit the wall.

Carl Albert is now 22-1, putting the Titans atop District 5A-4 as the playoffs near.


Class 4A No. 2 Tuttle has won eight straight games, and the development of its young pitching staff is a good reason.

“I think a big part of it is our pitching, but it's our teamwork,” Tuttle coach Jennifer White said. “They're really starting to communicate and work together, so I think that's a very important, too.”

The Tigers have been leaning on the trio of Bailee Saye, Kylee Robinett and Macy Spear in the circle.

In White's first full season as head coach, the Tigers have bonded and it's shown on the field with a 17-4 record.

“It's definitely different for me being able to get to learn the girls and kind of grow with them,” White said. “Whereas last year, I came in and didn't know anything about them. It's definitely different.”
