“We are really looking forward to our season getting started,” Carnes said. “Our players have been working hard in practice and have been looking forward to getting the season started.”

Returning Cougar players include senior Anders Austinson, senior Brad Spooner, senior Dakota Vickers, junior Austin Anderson and junior Nate Walton.
Carnes said he is very pleased with the way his team is progressing.

“Our practice sessions have been really good,” he said. “Everyone has been working hard and we are really looking forward to getting the season started.

“The players have been doing a particularly good job of hustling sand hustling sand executing fundamentals. With so many other Panhandle Christian Conference members in the tournament, we should get a good read on our upcoming conference opponents.”
