Cougar baseball comes to an end
“They played hard and competed well,” coach Doug Rush said, “but in the end we left 15 runners on base unable to get them to home plate.”
The Cougars had a very impressive year, finishing 27-10 in the season. They advanced further than any other team in school history.
“The team was lead by a group of great seniors who were off the charts in character, integrity, and leadership,” Rush said.
Ten seniors will leave the team next year:
Tyler Schulin, catcher
Bradley Scholhamer, catcher
Spence Rahm, 1st base
Brett Starrett, 1st base
David Gonzalez, 3rd base
Troy Gillen, left field
Kyle Mulvey, left field
Matt Mundkowsky, right field
Mitchell Denault, right field and 2nd base
Rex Hill, pitcher
The team was known for their strong work ethic and talent. Because of all of this, the Cougars had a very successful season.
Although they are losing so many important players, Tomball will have a very talented varsity team next year.
“We should be pre-ranked very high in the state,” Rush said. “And we fully expect to live up to those expectations.”
But ultimately, the Cougars are looking toward their main focus of next year. According to Rush, “Our goal will be to win a state championship.”
