Baseball Changes to 3A in New Season open at Dowling.

By Casey Clair

In the 2021 season, the Lewis Central Titans were in Class 4A where they have been in for many seasons. Titan Baseball has earned a lot of respect from other large 4A schools. In the 2020-2021 season the Titans had defeated big teams such as Urbandale and Sioux City East. Lewis Central finished the season 25-9 with a 17-3 in conference record. The team was on a hot streak winning their first 11 games, one of which included a 12-2 win over Urbandale.

The first round in the sub-state, the Titans were scheduled to play a home game against Des Moines Hoover. After defeating the Huskies 12-2. The Titans are on to their biggest challenge of the season, Waukee. The first two innings, Titans were off to a hot start leading 4-0 with a moonshot hit by Aron Harrington. After those first two exciting innings, Waukee began to take control of the game scoring 14 runs in 5 innings. The Titans lose a season ending game 14-4.

Titan Baseball moving down classes will have advantages and disadvantages when it comes to the sub-state games. Many 3A teams remain unfamiliar with the Titans except for teams like Denison and Glenwood. Marion had a great 2020-2021 season, going 37-6, and winning the state championship. Marion will not be the only threat for the Titans. Some other unfamiliar schools such as Xavier, and Wahlert Catholic, are also highly ranked in 3A. Although Lewis Central is 12-3 against 3A teams, the Titans know full and well, not to take any team lightly.
