SHERIDAN — Sheridan Jets won the Wyoming American Legion State B Championship in commanding fashion after beating Powell 12-0 in the championship game Sunday.
“It is scary when you get a whole group of kids to buy in and just play hard,” said Austin Cowen, Sheridan Jets head coach. “We did not play any different baseball; we went out, hit the ball hard, made plays and threw strikes. That’s all you want and that’s what we have done all year. It has been a great year with these guys.”
Sheridan advanced to the championship after defeating Laramie 12-2 Saturday. Sheridan won all five games by at least 10 points and never played more than five innings. This was accomplished through a consistent approach.
“That is what we preached, was that consistency,” Cowen said. “That is the name of the game for baseball. Every day we showed up for the exact same reason, to play the game as hard as you can. You play that way and a lot of time this is what ends up happening, you get to hold that trophy at the end of the year.”
